Join Us Thursdays for Coffee & Chat...
No need to panic if you no longer see “The Den” on the weekly calendar… it's now called “Coffee & Chat”. It still happens every Thursday at 9:00 am, and nothing has changed except the name.
“The Den” was the interim name for what used to be called “Glen’s Den”. When Pastor Glen Foster retired, the name had to change. “Glen’s Den” was a catchy, descriptive name that worked well, but with a new Pastor named Adam Nash, a catchy name that rhymes just couldn’t be found. So, it will just be called what it is… Coffee & Chat”. Just fill your cup to the brim, grab a cake or cookie, find an empty chair, and prepare for an “anything goes” discussion of just about anything (except politics). You will learn, you will be entertained, you will be challenged, and you will experience fellowship in its best form. You can participate as much or as little as you wish, so come and join the discussion. No reservations are required! Guests are always welcome!
Meet Our Pastor...
We are very pleased to introduce Adam Nash as the new Pastor of Pantano Baptist Church. Adam and his wife Amber have now relocated to Tucson, and Adam conducted his first Sunday worship service and preached his first sermon on Sunday, May. 8. If you missed the occasion, the entire service is available for viewing on the "Sermons" page of this website or on You Tube.
Adam received his bachelor’s degree from Eastern Kentucky University in 2008, and a Masters of Divinity degree from Baptist Seminary of Kentucky in 2016. Adam has served in three different churches since 2010, most recently as Associate Pastor of Youth and Technology at Del Norte Baptist Church in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
As we welcome Adam and Amber to Tucson and to our church, we acknowledge the efforts of the Pastor Search Committee… finding the right person that exactly fits the needs of our church has required some time, effort, and patience, but they are confident that Adam is the right person to inspire our congregation and lead our church forward in these challenging times.
We have been very blessed to have Gary Smyth as our interim Pastor. It is not easy to come out of retirement and assume all of the duties of a full-time pastor; however, Gary has kept the congregation inspired and motivated during this period, and he has endeared himself to our church members. As Adam takes the reins and begins the process of moving our church forward, there is much that needs done. Now is an opportune time to re-engage, recharge, and offer your unique skills and talents to help Adam and Amber get off to the best possible start. And, if you are looking for a new church home, there couldn't be a better time to give our church a try... all are welcome - especially you!
