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 hearts 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?

Park & Pray

The most powerful thing we can do is pray.
It should be our first line of defense! So, we are challenging you to join us in an event we are calling: “Park and Pray”. We want to cover Thomas Hospital in prayer beginning Monday, March 30. And actually you can pray even during the night as we know the hospital never closes and hospital staff anddoctors & nurses are still at work.
Here’s how:
Decide on a time between 6AM & 12AM.
Head to the parking lot of Thomas Hospital and park. Don’t get out. (be sure to park a distance away as not to interfere with traffic)
Turn flashers on.
Park there and pray. For 30 minutes, pray about what goes on inside the walls of the hospital. Pray for the doctors, nurses, support personnel, patients, family members of the sick.
When done snap a selfie of you &/or your carload. Upload it to our church facebook page with the comment “we parked and prayed”.

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!
