Pastor Spencer B. Bell

Pastor - Preacher - Leader

Having served as the Senior Pastor of Mt. Zion Baptist Church since August of 2022, Pastor Spencer Bell remains committed to fulfilling the Great Commission--advancing the gospel to his neighbors and the nations. He desires to see Christians flourish in their faith, the lost come to faith in Christ, and the preaching of God's Word to remain an integral part of the ministries of the local church. His bold preaching, coupled with an easy-to-understand method of communication, assists young and mature Christians alike in the study and practical application of God's Word in their lives.


In addition to pastoring Mt. Zion, Spencer serves as the President of Spencer Bell Ministries, Moderator of the Morgan Baptist Association, President of the Morgan Baptist Association Pastor's Conference, Chairman of the Non-Profit Cohort for the Hartselle Area Chamber of Commerce, in addition to serving on multiple boards for businesses, organizations, and non-profits.


Spencer is a graduate of River City Christian Academy (High School Diploma), Calhoun Community College (A.S., General Studies), and Athens State University (B.A., Religion), where he received the Acton E. Middlebrooks Award in Religion and Philosophy and the Outstanding Religion Major award, graduating at the top of his class.


Spencer presently attends the Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas, where he is working toward his Master’s Degree in Theological Studies (MTS.). With intentions to further his education, he plans to attend the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary for his Master of Divinity (M.Div.), Liberty University for his Master of Nonprofit Management (M.N.M),  and Dallas Theological Seminary for his Master of Theology (Th.M.).


A lifelong University of Alabama athletics enthusiast, Spencer can often be found in the stands cheering on his beloved Alabama Football team. He also is a black coffee connoisseur, an avid reader, writer, musician, and food enthusiast.
