Two Rivers Baptist Church

Meet Jesse Laidlaw and his family. Jesse is a graduate St. Cloud State and of Andersonville Theological Seminary. He also trained under Pastors Mark O Brien and Jim Goodew as a pastoral intern. The Laidlaws have a desire to start a fundamental Baptist church in the community of Rice.


With the help, prayer and support of Grace Baptist Fellowship and the MARBC family, the Laidlaws, with two other families from Grace, started their first public service Easter of 2016.   The church plant is called Two Rivers Baptist Church.
