Church is not just for adults, it's for the entire family!


The infant and toddler nursery is designed to give each child the very best of care. Toys and shared surfaces are regularly cleaned and disinfected in order to keep the environment as healthy as possible. Our staff of volunteer workers is available 10 minutes prior to each service to lovingly begin attending to your child's needs.

Children's Church

Children's Church is available during the Sunday morning service for K-4 through 10 years of age in the Fellowship Hall, which is located at the end of the hall to the left as you enter the front doors of our building. Each week, an exciting lesson from God's Word is taught by one of our excellent teachers to provide wisdom and encouragement your child can use each day.

Afternoon Programs

Two Sunday's per month, members of the Children's Church staff hold afternoon programs designed to encourage and motivate young people to learn more about God's Word in a fun and exciting setting. Girl's Afternoon Program is held on the third Sunday of each month, and Boy's Afternoon Program is held on the fourth Sunday. The afternoon program begins immediately after the morning service in the Fellowship Hall.

"Spreading the Message" in our community

Soul winning is not only a privilege but also a commandment. Be a part in spreading the Gospel to our community and winning your friends and neighbors to Christ with our soul winning opportunities. You'll have hands-on experience in sharing the Gospel with those who do not know Christ, and in doing so, you too can become an efficient soul winner!

If you have never participated in soul winning, are inexperienced, or would like to become a better soul winner, you will be paired up with an experienced soul winner who can teach you how to become a better soul winner. All you have to do is be willing.

Our teams go out soul winning each Saturday morning at 10:30am. We would love to have you join us for our church-wide soul winning!

We have great small groups for adults and children!


Being a part of a group is important. Join us each Sunday morning at 10am as we learn from God's Word in a small group setting. Each Sunday School class is taught by a seasoned church member whose love for God and passion for teaching brings out the best in each class member. Each week, the lesson for every group is the same, which gives families the opportunity to discuss the same topics together after church. Our children's teachers expertly navigate each lesson to provide simple yet profound truths to young minds, while our adult teachers take a deep dive into God's Word in order to help in our everyday lives.

Pastor Hurst

Pastor Darrell Hurst was saved at the age of 8 in Sunday school. Later, while at a camp in Monticello, Kentucky at the age of 18, he surrendered to preach the Gospel.

In 1985, he graduated from Hyles-Anderson College and in 1987, became the Assistant Pastor of Inland Empire Baptist Temple in Spokane, Washington.

God called him to move from Washington state to Williamsburg, Kentucky where he became the Senior Pastor of New Zion Baptist Church. In the spring of 2000, under his leadership, the church moved from the landlocked area that they were in to where the church is now located.


Married to his college sweetheart, Grace, the Hurst's have been blessed with 4 sons and 1 daughter: Darrell II, Nathan, Monica, Levi, and Seth.

Pastor Hurst has led the congregation of New Zion Baptist Church to be an independent, fundamental, soul-winning, missions-minded fellowship of believers. With a wide variety of ministries to that end including a bus ministry, a nursing home ministry, and other outreach ministries, many souls have come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, lives have been miraculously transformed, and several Christian workers have been sent from New Zion Baptist Church into mission fields around the world to reach others with the Gospel.
