Pastor & Staff

Pastor Lloyd Joiner, Jr.


 In 1975 Pastor Joiner accepted the call to the ministry, at which time he then pursued theological studies at Monroe Theological Seminary and numerous ministerial institutes at Bishop College. The Body of Christ at Progressive Baptist Church prayed, fasted, and listened to God and installed Lloyd Joiner, Jr., to be their pastor in 1979.

Under his leadership and vision, a new sanctuary, the Lloyd Joiner Educational Building, the Progressive Child Development Center, and the Progressive Community Outreach Center were built, where several community-oriented programs are held, such as the GED program, a tutorial program, parenting program, and summer enrichment program just to name a few.  Additionally, under his leadership, an extension of the United Theological Seminary and Bible College at Progressive Baptist Church was established and also, the Progressive Baptist Church 24/7 gospel internet radio.  

Pastor Joiner is married to Shirley Grogan Joiner and the father of three children, Terri, Garnette, and Patrick.
