In the summer of 1973, a group of people began meeting in their homes for Sunday and Wednesday services. As they prayed and sought the Lord’s direction, He led them to the Dublin area to start a church. They chose the name Berean Bible from Acts 17:11, desiring that the attitude of the Bereans toward the Word of God would be theirs as well. They were able to meet in a local bank, and then in September, they began meeting in the Indian Run Elementary School building. That continued until December of 1978 when they moved into the first phase of the current building.
In November of 1973, they called Roger Vogel to be their pastor. He continued as pastor until his retirement in 2012. In 1998 the multipurpose room was added, and in 2002 the final additions were added to the building. In 2011, John Hutcheson, Jr. was called to co-pastor with Pastor Vogel. John served as senior pastor from 2012 to September 2015. Pastor John is now the senior pastor at Tabernacle Baptist Church in Clayton, GA. Pastor Vogel continues to serve the Lord in short term missions--preaching and teaching most recently in Australia and the Philippines.
Matt Vandewarker became the senior pastor of Berean Bible church in August 2016. Read more about Pastor Matt on the leadership page.
