Mills Home Church welcomes first new pastor in three decades

For the first time in three decades, there is a new pastor at Mills Home Baptist Church preaching and ministering to the boys and girls at Baptist Children’s Homes’ (BCH) flagship campus in Thomasville. Luis Quintanar became the pastor at Mills Home Baptist Church during two special installation services in February. The first part took place during the church’s Sunday morning worship service on February 19. The second half was during the mid-week service on Wednesday, February 22 so that all Thomasville area staff members could attend and meet Pastor Luis an his wife Stephanie.

“This is a historic moment for the spiritual center of Mills Home,” says BCH president/CEO Michael C. Blackwell who presided at the service.

“The last time a new pastor came to this congregation was more than 31 years ago when we welcomed Randy Stewart.” Randy Stewart pastored from 1991 until retiring in 2020. His wife Diane, who served in the church alongside Randy, passed away earlier

that same year.

“I appreciate those who have presided here and delivered messages of hope
