Our Leadership

Pastor Paul Mitchell and His Wife Donna and family have faithfully led our church for the last 12 years.

Wayside Baptist Church was founded July 21, 1985 with 45 members and met in some members homes until they could rent the Alsop School building. Land was donated and a building was erected and in 1990 they moved into the present location on Canal Dr. Pastor Paul Mitchell and his wife, Donna, have been with Wayside since February 2008.
