About White Hall Baptist Church

Mission Statement

Jesus gave the church its commission when He said:

“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:19, 20

Our focus has been to be a Word-Centered church by keeping the Bible front and center in all we do. That’s why we use 2 Timothy 2:15 as a verse to rally around, reminding us to “Rightly Divide the Word of Truth”.

Our Leadership

Tim Beard


I have served as pastor of White Hall Baptist Church since January of 2001.  My wife, Stephanie, and I moved to the Richmond area from St. Louis, Missouri.  We are originally from Illinois.  It has been a rewarding and enriching experience to serve the Lord with this great church.  It is a pleasure to preach God’s Word to people who enjoy hearing and learning more about the great doctrinal truths contained in Scripture.  The Bible tells us in 2 Timothy 2:15:

“Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”

Our desire at White Hall Baptist Church is to be a people of the Word and to be God-centered and Word-centered in our approach to ministry and worship.  It is truly a blessing to serve in this community with such wonderful church members, godly deacons, and a great staff.

Victoriously His,
Pastor Tim Beard

Vincent Carman

Senior Adult Visitation Pastor

I was called into the ministry on December 8, 1966, and have served for 57 years.  During that time, I was on staff at a church in Miami, FL, and planted a church in Framingham, MA. I have also served as pastor of churches in Indiana and Kentucky.

In the Tates Creek Baptist Association, I have served as Brotherhood Director, Church Training Director, Evangelism Chairman, Moderator, Missions Director and Partnership Missions Coordinator. I led the association in partnerships in Africa, Panama, and a Home Mission Partnership with Treasurer State Baptist Association in Montana.  I participated in disaster relief efforts in Illinois, North Carolina, and Mississippi.

After my retirement in December 2012, Jeanie and I found a home at White Hall Baptist Church.  We are blessed by the fellowship of God’s people and the ministry of our Pastor, Bro. Tim Beard. In our church I serve as Senior Adult Visitation Pastor which involves visiting our senior adult shut-ins on a regular basis.

My life verse is found in Joshua 1:8-9: “8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. 9 Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.” KJV

In Christ,
Vincent Carman

In accordance with the teaching and practice of the New Testament, Deacons are to be ordained servants of the church. The task of the Deacon is to assist the pastor in performing the pastoral ministries of the church, in caring for church members and people of the community, and in leading the church to engage in fellowship and worship. The emphasis for the deacon body is intended to be service and ministry, rather than administration.

“For those who have served well as deacons obtain for themselves a good standing and great boldness in the faith which is in Christ Jesus.”
1 Timothy 3:13
