Mitch Bellflower, Children's Pastor

After pursuing a life long dream in law enforcement and becoming an Investigator

for the State of Georgia, Mitch Bellflower was on top of the world and things could

not have been better. But, our amazing God had other plans for his life. In 2010 he

was called to the ministry but not just any ministry…Children’s Ministry of all things.

He and his wife Kellie, of 28 years, have always been engaged in the children’s side

of church from teaching Sunday school of all ages, going on mission trips to lead

VBS, Kids Camps etc. but never on a full time level. After much prayer and asking

God for bold answer to the calling, (a story worth asking about) Mitch walked away

from his dream career and said yes to full time ministry as the Children’s Pastor at

Lyons First Baptist Church. He leads close to 120 children and an average of 40

faithful volunteers each week.

He has a Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice from Rochelle University, and is

currently working on his Associate of Divinity in Biblical Studies at Southeastern

Baptist Theological Seminary. He has lived in Vidalia for 48 years and has two

children Brittany and Blaine.

Mitch’s sincere desire is to partner with parents in helping kids discover and

embrace a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
