Changing senior pastors for the first time in 36 years might be a challenge for most churches.


Such is not the case for First Baptist Church in Kiel, who has been working patiently and methodically toward that change for several years.

Long-time Senior Pastor Steve Schultz officially passed the pastoral leadership baton to First Baptist Church’s new senior pastor in a ceremony July 14. 

Pastor Steve Abrams will serve as the new senior pastor, a role he assumed on July 1. He is hardly a newcomer to the First Baptist congregation. As an 11-year-old, he was a charter member of the Kiel congregation when the church was founded in 1983.
