Bus Ministry

Our Bus Ministry was designed specifically for those who need transportation as a safe, fun, and reliable way to get to and from our services. Contact us at 515-251-5954 for information on how to get started!

The Bus Ministry at First Baptist Church started out with one van route serving families and children with no means of transportation. In August of 2012, during a tent revival, Pastor McCoy, with the help of Evangelist Craig Bryan, began putting together a vision for expanding our van route into a full-fledged bus ministry. They located two buses, negotiated a good price, and presented the vision to the church on the last day of the revival.

The church voted unanimously to purchase the buses and to immediately expand this vital ministry. During the next three months, the bus ministry began to grow at a rapid pace. At our annual anniversary service in November, there were over 125 riders on two buses and one van. Currently, we run four buses and one van.

Scores of people have been saved and dozens have made professions of faith along with many baptisms in the first six months since our bus ministry was expanded. The bus ministry has not only been a great way to reach people for Christ, but it has also served as a tremendous opportunity for Christians to become actively involved in the Great Commission.
