About Our Church

Lizette Hunt and has been pastor at First Baptist Church since 2009 and her and her family made Pierre, SD their home. Pastor Hunt’s philosophy of ministry is simple; we are called to be in relationship with Jesus and with each other. “Here at First Baptist Church I pray you will feel welcome into our family.”

Here is a picture of her family (from left to right); Rebecca, Caitlyn, Lizette, and my husband Ken.
