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.

We are hoping to lead a Dover Association mission trip to the Standing Rock Reservation next summer and hope you will join us! Dover Association has partnered with Tipi Wakan Ministries for the last 5 years and several of our churches make the trip to North and South Dakota each summer.

The interest meeting is for those who would like to know more about the ministry happening on the reservation and what is involved in serving on a mission team to Standing Rock. We hope you will join us!
