Dover Baptist Association

Resourcing & equipping churches and their leaders.

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.

Introducing the Dover A/V Support Group

It has been almost a year now since COVID forced all churches to implement more technology in an incredibly short period of time. Some are now masters at Zoom and other platforms—whether we wanted to be or not!

A new support group just for A/V and tech people has launched! This is an informal network primarily for volunteers working all this out mostly behind the scenes.

You are invited to a Zoom meeting.
When: Feb 2, 2021, 6:30 PM
