Dover Baptist Association

Resourcing & equipping churches and their leaders.

Watson Mission Offering - 100% Goes To Missions

Dover Baptists observe a Month of Prayer for Association Missions in May each year. We share specific prayer requests. We also use it to inform the churches about the role and work of the association. The month of prayer helps call attention to and connect Dover Baptists with a variety of local missions and ministries too.

About us

Dover acts as a resource, catalyst, and ally to help churches and their leaders.

Baptist congregations in Virginia’s capital region form the network of Dover Baptist Association churches. They voluntarily link together to develop and coordinate shared missions, design and organize training, encourage and promote ministries, and foster communication among its members. They do all this to witness, disciple, and minister the love of Christ in the world.
