Our Staff
Director of Missions- Dr. Jack Long
jack I grew up in Henderson, KY where I met and married my high school sweetheart, Charlotte Courtney in 1970. I surrendered to God's call to ministry in April of 1972. I completed my BA at Union University in 1975, my Master of Divinity at Mid-Western Baptist Theological Seminary, Kansas City, MO in 1980 and a PHD from The American College of Theology, Minneapolis, MN in 1999.

I was a pastor in West Tennessee, Kansas City, MO and Southern California before responding to God's call to serve as an associational missionary. I served the Sunny Baptist Association in Mt. Airy, NC before coming to the Beulah Baptist Association in May, 2004.

Charlotte and I are blessed with one son, David, our daughter in law, Sarah and four grandchildren.

I enjoy reading, scuba diving, fishing and working out. I am blessed to have the privilege of serving with Great Pastors and Great Churches.
