Savannah River Baptist Church

Our Pastor


Pastor Dale Montgomery trusted Jesus Christ for his salvation at age 7, and was called to preach as a teenager. He received his bachelor’s degree in Pastoral Ministries from Pensacola Christian College in Pensacola, Florida. After dating Rachel all four years of college, they were married and moved to Santa Maria, California where he served as the Outreach Pastor at First Baptist Church. He received further training from The Crown Seminary in Knoxville, Tennessee where he earned a Master of Ministry degree. Burdened for the need of a Bible preaching church in the expanding greater Savannah, Georgia area, Dale and Rachel Montgomery were sent out from Dr. Clarence Sexton and Temple Baptist Church in Powell, Tennessee to start Savannah River Baptist Church in August 2010. Pastor Dale is passionate about preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ, and encouraging people of all ages to become committed followers of Jesus Christ. Pastor Dale and Rachel have four amazing children: Caleb is seven, Lydia is six, Luke is four, and Esther is one.
