Pastor Dan Smith and his wife, Nancy, have been serving at the Buckley Road Baptist Church since November of 1979.
They both grew up in Michigan; she is from Detroit and Pastor is from Flint. They graduated from Baptist Bible College in Springfield, Missouri in 1975. Right after graduation, he took a youth director position in Iola, Kansas. Later, they accepted a similar position in Halstead, Kansas. A few years later in 1977, he answered the call to go to Great Lakes Baptist Temple in Flint, Michigan and became the Associate Pastor, Youth Director and Bus Director. Finally, in October of 1979 they sensed God’s call to Buckley Road Baptist Church in Liverpool, NY. Pastor Smith accepted the invitation to become their Pastor.
Nancy Smith is a nationally certified interpreter for the Deaf with the R.I.D. She also trains sign language students to interpret for the Deaf, as all services are interpreted.
The emphasis of this great church has been on world missions. Under his leadership, since 1979 BRBC has given close to 2 million dollars towards world missions. God has used this church to call and send forth many men and women into full time ministry and to birth 8 other churches.
BRBC also takes its doctrine seriously. We believe that the Bible is the very Word of God with no error. The Bible is our text book and our foundation is the doctrine found in God’s Word.
When you visit our church, you will can count on a friendly welcome and down-to-earth Christians with a love for their church family. You can also count on hearing teaching and preaching from the Word of God followed by an invitation to make a decision for the Lord.
We are a family friendly church which includes Sunday School classes for all ages, a Junior Church, a toddler church, and nursery care. On Wednesday nights for adults and teens, we have Bible study and prayer. For the children we hold the Patch the Pirate Club and Buccaneer’s Club during our Wednesday night Bible study. On Friday nights, we host an addiction program that we call Reformers. If you or anyone you know has a stronghold in their life, no matter what it is, this program would do them a world of good.
The Lord has blessed us with wonderful people who have hearts for the work of Christ. I trust that you will not only become acquainted with the ministry, but also come see us in the near future if at all possible.
Should you have any questions, please feel free to send us a note or call the church offices at (315) 457-0570.
Please pray for us and for the work that our Lord is accomplishing at BRBC. We would love to see you soon! God bless you.
