Blanton Family Ministry Center – An Event Space


In 2015, First Baptist was blessed with the ability to build a new addition onto the church.  It is our mission and our hope that the Blanton Family Ministry Center becomes an event home for McDowell County.

It is one of the largest event spaces in the county and includes a decorated lobby, large event space, commercial kitchen, an audio-visual system with high speed wireless internet, and an elevated stage.  There is also a covered on-level drop off location.

We hope that you will consider the Blanton Center for your next event.
