After being a part of the New Kent and Charles City community for over 8 years, God burdened the heart of Pastor Joe regarding a local, independent, autonomous, Baptist church in the area. There were none in either New Kent or Charles City. The nearest to the Providence Forge area are more than 20 miles away. In December 2019, God directed Pastor Joe and Marty Naylor to visit Heritage Baptist Church in Chesterfield VA and it was there that God made his plan clear. He desired to establish a church in Providence Forge modeled after the ministry of Heritage Baptist Church in Chesterfield. Pastor Dr. Deron Jackson and the Heritage family in Chesterfield warmly welcomed the opportunity and are now seeing this new ministry take shape.
