First Baptist began its relationship with Orr elementary in late fall of 2018. Pastor Pike Wisner, and Orr Principal, Steven Young have been friends for 6 years. This relationship forged as Mr. Young’s church, The Cross Baptist, was needing a place to meet. For about 3 years, the Cross met at what was then the South Campus of First Baptist. We then helped fund the purchase of a building for The Cross to call their own.
Working alongside Principal Young and his wonderful staff at Orr has opened the door for many in our church to uniquely impact Tyler families for the sake of the gospel. Orr faculty and students have been a blessing to serve, and our opportunities on this campus continues to grow.
