Atlantic Shores Baptist Church (ASBC) was founded in 1981 by Dr. George Sweet. The church grew from one family to a large church with a strong emphasis on outreach, discipleship, strong family values, and community. Today, this 34-year-old Independent Baptist Church occupies 8.72 acres at one of Virginia Beach’s busiest intersections. Atlantic Shores Baptist has over 1,000 people that call it their church home and has had only three Senior Pastors over its 34-year history. 


Atlantic Shores Baptist has a strong vision and track record for reaching the community and the world. The church has a longstanding reputation for large scale outreach events that have impacted the community for the better. Its history and this heart to make a difference in the community continue today. In 34 short years, ASBC has watched God reveal His glory; from the building of the first worship center in 1985, to the creation of Atlantic Shores Christian School, to the ministries and facilities in existence today.


The Senior Pastor will serve as the chief communicator, primary Biblical teacher, and visionary leader for Atlantic Shores.

The Senior Pastor will be responsible for effectively sharing the gospel and communicating the vision of the church, as well as leading and developing the staff and lay leadership of the church.  He will also lead the Board of Elders.
