Lynchburg Reformed Baptist Mission

The Lynchburg Reformed Baptist Mission (LRBM) is a church plant which was formed on November 26, 2017 when four households committed to this new work. This mission did not begin out of division within any existing church or churches but simply came about through a group of people who live in the Lynchburg, Virginia area who have come together desiring to see a confessional Reformed Baptist church formed in their community.

I am serving as supervising Elder for this new work and look forward to preaching in their services this Sunday, January 7, 2018 as they begin weekly Lord's Day morning meetings. I will also be giving oversight to their pulpit supply in coming Sundays.

The LRBM will meet at the New London Historical Society church building (672 Alum Springs Rd., Forest, Virginia 24551). This church building was once the home of the New London Methodist Church, a congregation which disbanded in 2000. We are thankful to have the opportunity to use this historic meeting location for upcoming worship services.

The regular Sunday schedule for the LRBM will be:

10:30 am        Morning Worship

12:00 noon     Covered Dish Lunch on site

1:00 pm          Afternoon Worship

A website for the LRBM is being developed by one of the mission team members, where updates can be found on the work. If you live in the Lynchburg community and are looking for a confessional RB church or know someone who might be interested, please feel free to spread the word.

Thanks for the encouragement. We had a blessed first Lord's Day meeting on Sunday.

Checking that you are meeting at the Forest VA location -- Google results for your church puts you at Fairfield Inn & Suites Lynchburg.
Thank you. Anne

Hi Anne, unfortunately, I have to report that a difficult decision was made in December 2019 to suspend the meetings of the mission. We continued to have several families who were involved, but we did not believe it was in the providence of God at that time to continue as a mission or to attempt to form as a particular congregation. We are still in touch with some of those involved in the mission. Feel free to send an email to and we can add you to our email list if anything develops in the future.
