Rev. Barber

From Pastor Jerome A Barber


We are praying for those impacted by the Coronavirus. The health and safety of our Congregation is my priority.  Since we’ve been aware of this pandemic, our staff and supporting ministries have been keeping a close eye on the situation utilizing resources from Local and State Health Departments, The Center for Disease Control (CDC), and FEMA to take every precaution to keep our Congregation safe. As we continue with our regularly scheduled worship services (7am & 10am), I wanted to share what we have been doing so you can feel safe attending these services and other activities at SMZBT.

  • Our campuses on Butternut Drive and Kecoughtan Road are cleaned daily by our Janitorial company and we recently increased the frequency of cleaning throughout the day. 
  • We strongly encourage everyone to wash their hands for 20 seconds using The Lord’s Prayer as a guideline for the 20 second hand washing. 
  • Additional hand soap has been placed in the bathrooms for your convenience.  We wipe down our pews everyday with Hospital Grade Sanitizer to sanitize the fixtures and the air.  Hand sanitizer is available around the campus.

Those who don’t feel comfortable coming are encouraged to enjoy worship service on our Facebook Page or our Church App.  Both can be accessed through our webpage,  Offering will be adjusted.  We are strongly encouraging on-line giving to limit the handling of money and offering baskets.

Please go to and search for Sixth Mount Zion Baptist Temple.  You can also access on-line giving on our webpage,


As your Pastor, I do appreciate the incredible dedication of our Congregants.  If you are feeling sick, see your healthcare provider and enjoy worship on-line at  All of these safety precautions are with you in mind. The well being of this congregation is first and foremost in my heart.

We All Count at Sixth Mount!
