About Prescott

In 1983, unhappy with the increasingly fundamentalist direction of the SBC, the congregation voted to align dually with the ABC. As the fundamentalist faction completed its takeover of the SBC, Prescott voted to withdraw its SBC affiliation altogether in 1994. Denominationally, it now aligns solely with the ABC and its regional body, the American Baptist Churches of the South (ABCOTS).

Rev. Sehested continued as Prescott's pastor until August 1995, when she resigned to write and lead retreats from a base in North Carolina.

For many years Prescott has welcomed persons to its membership and leadership without regard to their sexual orientation. The congregation decided to formally affirm its position with a Statement of Welcome in the fall of 1997. It followed by affiliating with the Association of Welcoming and Affirming Baptists in 1999, and in 2000 with a Memphis-area group of Reconciling Congregations.
