Church History

St. Andrew Missionary Baptist Church was organized on March 4, 1959 in the home of our founding Pastor, the late Anderson of St. John MBC in Oakland CA was presiding St. Andrew Missionary Baptist Church was voted as the Church name because Heaven rejoices when one soul is saved. Forty-four members were present when St. Andrew Missionary Baptist Church was organized. Some of the offices included Deacon Nathaniel Hall & Deacon Richard Caesar. St. Andrew member’s fellowshipped with Mt. Calvary MBC located in San Francisco where Rev. S. A. Capiti was Pastor until we purchased a building in August 1959. We then we moved to 2565 Post Street, San Francisco, California.

Under the leadership of Pastor Willis and many other faithful and loyal brothers and sisters, the remodeling of the church was completed. In April 1966 Pastor Willis retired and on September 25, 1966 Rev. Samuel Jackson was elected as Pastor and installed as Pastor on Sunday October 23, 1966. The mortgage was paid off under Pastor Jackson’s leadership. In 1983 a baptismal pool was installed as Pastor and severed from December 1, 1991 to December 2000, under his leadership the fellowship hall was named and dedicated to our founding Pastor, the late Rev. J.B. Willis.

On May 6, 2001 our Pastor Rev. Ishmael Burch Jr. a humble servant & visionary leader was elected as our Interim Pastor installed as Pastor in February 2002 and consecrated as Bishop Burch. On Sunday May 1, 2005 Pastor Burch continues the legacy of our previous Pastors. Under his leadership his Assistant Pastor Jeff Branner, his pastoral staff and officers many community outreach ministries have been started. Innovative ways to study such as Christian workshops and tag team preaching. In addition a church based food pantry was established and our church was remodeled in partnership with San Francisco Korean 7th Day Adventist Church in February 2012. Newer partnerships have been established for education of our physical and spiritual building. This year with the help of our Lord and savior and dedicated saints of God, we purchased a church van. Plans are underway for renovating our baptism pool and creating stronger ministries in San Francisco Communities.
