Abyssinian Baptist Church
In March 2015, Reverend Reginald Lee Bachus was appointed Associate Pastor of the landmark Abyssinian Baptist Church in the City of New York. Bachus works under the visionary leadership of Abyssinian’s prolific Pastor, Dr. Calvin O. Butts III, to advance the church’s 206 year mission of advancing causes for positive social change, and Winning More Souls for Christ.
Previous to the position at Abyssinian, Reverend Bachus served as Pastor of Mt. Ollie Baptist Church in Brooklyn, NY. During his pastorate there, Reverend Bachus led the church to add a second worship service, doubled the membership and provided insightful guidance over its spiritual, programmatic, and numerical growth. Further, under Bachus’ direction, Mt. Ollie founded its own Community Development Corporation, which made significant change in the Brownsville section of Brooklyn.
