Lead Pastor

First Fairhope’s mission is summed up in: “First loved, love first”. It won’t take you long to discover this is truly a family rich in the relationships that matter most. Growing together, we worship, we serve, we laugh, we cry, we learn, and we reach out to our community and world with ministry that meets them at the center of their need.

Our doors are open. Our heart are open too. If you’ve been thinking, searching, and hoping for a place to belong, a place to be loved, a place to call “home”, then we invite you to come join us at First Fairhope.

First Time Here?

As soon as you arrive on campus you’ll enter through our Commons area that faces the back parking lot. Inside you’ll be greeted with a smile and a handshake. If you need directions or assistance, our First Impressions team is ready to help!

You’ll see all kinds of people wearing all types of clothing. You are welcome to come just as you are.


We’d love to hear from you!

What’s coming up?

Lighting up Halloween for CHRIST

October 31 at 6-8pm

On October 31, you’ll find loads of fun for all your costumed kiddos. The back lot will be filled with a bunch of games, inflatables, carnival games, food, drinks, and TONS OF CANDY! It’s a great SAFE place to spend your Halloween Night.

This event is one of our largest evangelistic outreach events of the year and serves as an incredible opportunity to connect our church with our community, and the world with our Savior. We cannot do it without you!

At First Fairhope, Candy donations are now being accepted for this annual Perky Pumpkin Party. Place your individually wrapped candy donations in any of the tubs around the campus.

A crew of workers is also needed to man the game booths.  Contact Pastor Kevin at the office if you would like to jump into the fun of hosting the BEST Pumpkin Party around!

Membership Process

We need each other…

When the church started 2000 years ago, they didn’t have a building—they had each other! The Bible paints a beautiful picture of people worshipping, praying together, taking care of each other, and doing life together.  They were more than acquaintances. They were family! A commitment to each other is how the church started, and it’s still that way today! If we want to experience real life, we’ve got to do life together. When you become a member of First Fairhope, you’re joining a family where you take care of your brothers and sisters, and they take care of you!
