Who We Are
In June of 1973, Dellview Baptist Church in San Antonio sponsored a Vacation Bible School in the Bulverde area to determine possible interest in planting a church. This Vacation Bible School was held at the home of Bonnie and Mike Cejka with the help of Gay Morgan, Madeline Sellars, Marilyn Rohlmeier, and Mary Jane Witte.
As a result of the success of this Vacation Bible School, a decision was made to launch a church. The first Sunday service of Bulverde Baptist Mission was held August 26th, 1973 in the chapel at Roy Aker’s Singing Hills Ranch. Approximately 200 people attended that first service with 29 people joining the church at that first service.
Through the first few years of this young church Dr. Perry Webb and John B. Witte led the congregation to meet the needs of the Bulverde community. As the church grew the need for a permanent location was becoming an issue. The church moved to it’s first permanent and current location in October of 1975 and constituted as a Southern Baptist Church that same month. Over the years the church has numerous pastors and staff, but the church has never lost the missions mindset that launched the church in the beginning.
Along with numerous other mission projects the church has undergone, in 1995 Bulverde Baptist has sponsored a Hispanic Mission, which has recently constituted as a Church. In 2005, BBC opened two homes to Missionaries on state side assignment. These homes were donated to the church for the purpose of building the kingdom of God and that is exactly what they are doing by offering a place of refuge and rest to those in the mission field.
It is the desire of Bulverde Baptist Church to continue to do the work and the will of God in the Bulverde/Spring Branch community. Our history is not long, but is rich in what the Lord has done in and through the lives of the members and those in the area. God has a great future for Bulverde Baptist Church…will you be a part of it?
