Our relatively short history includes many ‘God’ moments, things inexplicable apart from God’s hand of grace. In March of 2002, with Dr. Brian Autry as pastor, 13 families from Swift Creek Baptist Church in Midlothian, VA were called out to start a church plant in Moseley, VA. Meeting in a local elementary school cafeteria, God began to build His church. In 2003, 37.5 acres of land was anonymously donated to Parkway less than a mile from the elementary school it was meeting in. In 2006, we began meeting at our current church campus.
In 2012, Pastor Brian was called out to be the Executive Director of the SBCV (Southern Baptist Conservatives of Virginia). We were excited to see Pastor Brian obediently answer God’s call on his life to pursue this role in our state’s convention.
The following year, while we awaited the next Senior Pastor, Dr. Chuck Lawless of Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary led the Parkway family as the Interim Lead Pastor. This particular year has been frequently referred to as the “Meantime” period. It was an encouraging time for Parkway to learn and grow, and we are continually grateful for Pastor Chuck’s leadership during that time.
Then in June of 2013, Pastor Ben Brammer became our Senior Pastor. Most recently, in March of 2017, we welcomed Pastor Derek Futrell as our Senior Pastor.
Let’s press on to know Him and make Him known among our neighbors and the nations, and let’s continue to be a people who worship God, build believers, and reach people for the glory of our Great and Mighty Savior!
