Lead Pastor

Joey Hanner

I served in Ministry as a Student/Missions Pastor from 2000-2011 and in 2011 I became the Pastor of Union 3 Baptist Church in Ball Play, Al., which I served till January 2023.  The church grew from 120 to over 500 and saw over 1000 Baptisms in recent years.  

Today God is moving in encouraging the church with One on One Discipleship, which was very beneficial when growth was everywhere in the church and the investment in others was needed in all of the ministries.  I believe that God is moving in the church for the need is great of raising up disciples that will go make more disciples and the word GO is the key, door to door evangelism is very effective when so many are searching for answers to spiritual questions.
