Live out your passion and calling through the ministries of the church!

At Ardmore, we believe that every person in the church is called to be a disciple and minister of Christ. Our Shared Ministry Model is designed to give every person who attends our church a place to discover and live out their passion and calling as a disciple.

If you love to work with kids, play an instrument, show compassion to others, or you’re a math whiz, we have a place for you to live your faith!

Ardmore Baptist Church

We Welcome You!

We seek to connect you with Jesus Christ

Worship, Music, and Arts

The Worship, Music, and Arts ministry is dedicated to worship Christ through creativity and inspiration. Our mission is to engage our church and community in creative worship, compelling music, and captivating arts. We believe all of these invite life-changing encounters to transform minds through the mystery of God, transform hearts through the love of God, and transform lives in response to God.

We love that our church is known for its excellence in music and arts education, and is dedicated to teaching music fundamentals and skills to all ages. Our music and worship are mostly traditional in style, enriched with creative elements that are thematic, participatory, and engaging with Christ-centered relevant preaching.

Faith Formation and Engagement

Our Faith Formation and Engagement Ministry is divided into four age groups:

Children and Families

We seek to provide a nurturing and engaging experience for children and families that is formed in faith by God’s word, the work of the Holy Spirit, and in our community with God’s people. We offer many opportunities for children to experience God through worship, Bible study, music, and service. We strive to nurture the faith of all children at their own development levels.

To learn more, contact Lee Ritchie, Minister of Children and Families at 336-725-8767 or


As our children grow, we help them develop their relationship with God through scripture. No matter who they are, we want to meet all students wherever they are in life, and be involved in their lives both inside and outside the church. Our hope is that our youth will discover and strengthen their faith as we walk with them in this stage of their journey to God.

To learn more, contact Dane Martin, Minister of Students at 336-725-8767 or

College Students

We seek to provide support and guidance to our college-aged members, so they know that we care for them. Our ministry provides an outlet for students to grow as leaders, develop their skills, and be molded in their faith. We want our students to feel a sense of belonging, whether they are joining us during their time away from home or if Winston-Salem is already their home. All students are invited to join us and make our church a part of their journey in faith at this stage in their lives.

To learn more, contact Dane Martin, Minister of Students at 336-725-8767 or


At this stage in our lifetime journey, our ministry is joined by disciples who seek to further transform their faith and become more Christ-like. We believe that through study and practice, we strive to be more like Christ. The Bible is our curriculum and all other material is merely supplemental.

Invitation and Hospitality

Our Invitation and Hospitality ministry seeks to extend a sense of welcome through engagement with and encouragement to our visitors and new members. We seek to share the love of Jesus with others by extending genuine hospitality, and provide paths and opportunities to develop community with others, as well as a personal relationship with Christ. We welcome and encourage everyone to connect through worship, Bible study, and fellowship.

Congregational Care

Care and compassion embody the works of our Congregational Care ministry. This ministry is nestled within the community of faith at Ardmore and allows us to practice our belief in caring for others. In learning to care for each other, we are able to better care for those in our Winston-Salem community and beyond.

Here are just a few examples of our Congregational Care outreach activities.

  • Ardmore Connections: Every month, small groups of 6-8 people gather for a meal or dessert at one person’s home to strengthen and enjoy the bonds of fellowship.
  • Home Ministry Team: Monthly visits with our valued church members who are unable to attend services themselves due to age or health.
  • Movie Night Out: Once a month, a group of adults gathers at the church to watch a movie and discuss the themes and their ideas. Popcorn and other snacks are provided, and guests are always welcome!
