ABOUT MCGREGOR BAPTIST CHURCH
McGregor Baptist Church opened its doors in 1958 as Southside Baptist Chapel “in the boonies” just outside the city limits of Fort Myers on McGregor Boulevard. Originally an independent mission church pastored by evangelist Dan Perkins, 51 individuals attended the first Sunday service on June 23, 1958. The first service was held in an old two-story farmhouse. Following approval by the Royal Palm Baptist Association of petition for recognition as a Southern Baptist Church, Southside officially became McGregor Baptist Church on July 7, 1958 with 55 faithful charter members.
Today, McGregor is a multi-generational congregation with a passion for biblical preaching and application, reaching the lost, and being a light in the Fort Myers Community.
