While we hold the conviction that every believer is a minister/missionary we are grateful for the leadership that God has provided for us in our journey of faith. We’d like you to meet them!

Rev. Jimmy Dunn
Rev. Jimmy Dunn began his ministry in 1964 as pastor of Winn’s Creek Baptist Church in Halifax, Virginia. He served at Winn’s for three years before moving to Drakes Branch Baptist Church for four years. From there, he began a 20-year dual ministry for Mulberry Grove Baptist Church and Maysville Baptist Church, both in Buckingham. Later he served for 12 years as pastor of Totuskey Baptist Church in Warsaw. Just at the time he was reaching retirement age, Buckingham County came back into his life. “Jane and I came to Buckingham for a funeral, and we ran into Kenneth Ranson. He asked if I would serve as the interim pastor for First Baptist Dillwyn. I met with the committee, and we agreed that I would serve for six months. I ended up being there for six years.” Now pastor emeritus, Jimmy spends his retirement years ministering on call and serving as supply pastor. He celebrated 50 years of ordained ministry in May 2015. First Baptist and Buckingham are blessed with Jimmy’s presence in our lives.
