35 Years of History
The hand of God upon this place has been evident from the first day in the old red barn to this day. On September 17, 2006, Hyles Baptist Church celebrated twenty years with Pastor Talley and Associate Pastor, Jim Lacks. As we look back, we must say "To God be the Glory, great things He hath done." But the members of Hyles Baptist Church are not satisfied with resting on the blessings of the past. As we look to the future, we ask, "Lord, plant my feet on higher ground!"
God began to bless Hyles Baptist Church in a great way. In the 1990’s, our church experienced steady, solid growth. People were being saved, families were being reached, and new ministries were being started. One of these was the bus ministry. God mightily used a group of laymen and women who were willing to work and sacrifice so that multitudes could be reached through the buses. Names such as Lacks, May and Wright led the way in establishing this great outreach to Richmond and the surrounding area.
Growth continued as God gave Pastor Talley the vision of relocating the church facility to eleven acres of property on Courthouse Road. In 1990, Pastor Talley’s vision became a reality as the church moved to our present location.
