About Us

In 1929 Rev. W. M. Taylor had a vision for Beulah Baptist Church.  The church was organized on Virginia Street at Bro. Ben Allen’s home.  In 1930 Rev. Taylor decided to convert one of his cottage homes into a church to keep his members together after moving from Bertville, LA.  The dedicatory service was the fourth Sunday in September that same year.  Rev. Taylor was Pastor for two years before passing in May 1931.

Rev. Horace Leonard served as Pastor for six months before other duties forced him to resign.

Rev. M. J. Hubbard was elected Pastor on February 5, 1932.  Under his leadership the church relocated on November 17, 1940, and the 32 member congregation marched to Maryland Street and the name changed to Greater Beulah Baptist Church.  Rev. Hubbard served 21 years before departing this life on April 2, 1953.

June 1953, Rev. R. A. Clark was elected Pastor of Greater Beulah.  In August 1961 the church was forced to leave the Maryland Street location.  Church services were held at Good Hope Baptist Church until a new edifice could be built.  Under Rev. Clark’s leadership we purchased the current site for Greater Beulah.  Rev. Clark served faithfully for 40 years until his death in December 1993.

Rev. Alando G. O’Connor was elected Pastor on June 25, 1994.  He worked on several projects, such as acquiring property and the development of our Fellowship Hall, dedicated in memory of Rev. R. A. Clark.  Rev. O’Connor served for 5 years and left to pursue the vision of his ministry calling.

In 2001 Rev. Darrick R. Johnson was elected Pastor.  He was instrumental in the expansion of property acquisition and growth of the church.  Rev. Johnson also served for five years.

When Greater Beulah needed a Pastor, and did not want to search for one every five years, they decided to petition our All-Mighty, All-Powerful, All-Sufficient, All-Knowing and Ever-Present God.  Our God heard their plea.  He exercised great care and sent a Pastor after his own heart.  He sent a man called by Him, chosen by Him, and ordained by Him exclusively for Greater Beulah: Pastor Michael D. Mallet.  In February 2006 Rev. Michael D. Mallet and First Lady Jacqueline Mallet became shinning beacons of light for Greater Beulah Baptist Church.  Their commitment to seeing the church continually reach for new heights has renewed Greater Beulah’s radiance.

Take a look around and you will see Pastor Mallet’s great influence:  Renovation of the Church and Fellowship Hall, explosive growth in spirituality and membership, and a positive impact carved in the South Baton Rouge community.  Pastor and First Lady Mallet have made reaching out to youth in this area a major priority, and the young people prove to be inspired to serve God like we haven’t seen in years.

The future of Greater Beulah is indeed bright with Pastor Mallet’s leadership and the wonderful God-loving members of the church family.  We invite you to join us as we build upon our history with God’s word and continue bringing souls to Christ.
