Jimmy Blanton

Associational Missionary

Through twenty two years of pastoral ministry in the farming communities to the County Seat to the First Baptist Church, Jimmy Blanton has been prepared by God to lead the Columbus Baptist Association to fulfill God’s purpose in assisting churches and fulfilling Acts 1:8. Since August 1, 1995, Blanton has enjoyed the honor and privilege of serving the Lord and the sister churches of the Columbus Baptist Association.

His home town is Opelika, AL where he grew up in church but did not come to know the Lord Jesus in a personal experience until two weeks before high school graduation. Three days later God called him to preach and within a two year period of preaching revivals and attending school, God had placed His call upon his heart to serve in associational mission work. Blanton was ordained by the Providence Baptist Church in Opelika and has served churches in Alabama and Georgia with his education coming through Mobile College and New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.

Blanton has experienced the power and the supernatural provisions of God over the last seven years through the Mission Columbus Central project that he knows that Eph. 3:20-21 is a reality when you follow God’s direction and become totally dependent upon God: “Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him (be) glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.”
