Pastor Tally Wilgis

PBA Executive Director 


Schedule a meeting below.

Pastor Tally has been our Executive Director since joining us in 2022. Prior to his arrival, Tally was the Executive Director of the Baltimore Baptist Association since 2015.

Tally’s story is one of strategy, perseverance and team development. Born into poverty in Baltimore City to an unwed mother, he was the first in his family to graduate high school. He went on to earn an undergraduate degree in Government with a focus on Pre-Law and a master’s degree in Christian Leadership from Liberty University.

In addition to serving as Executive Director, Tally has served churches at all stages and sizes. Beginning as a volunteer at Thomas Road Baptist Church he became part of the staff at Liberty Christian Academy under Dr. Jerry Falwell Sr. He then went on to successfully plant churches in Texas, Virginia, and Maryland.

Tally is the founder of Paradise Community (, a vibrant church in our area, and the owner of Apex Team EQ (, a business consulting firm that strengthens business teams using the IEQ9 personality tool with an emphasis on EQ. He is also the president of Captivate Global Initiatives (, a mission agency based in East Africa. CGI operates Captivate Christian Academy, a highly acclaimed school in the Muhuru region, recognized by Duke University’s W.I.S.E.R. program and the Kenyan government.

Tally’s dedication to missions has been recognized by the North American Mission Board (NAMB), which has vetted and approved him as a missionary three times: once in Houston, TX, with the Home Mission Board and twice as a NAMB church planter in Virginia and Maryland, respectively.

Above all, Tally values his family. He proudly shares that his greatest accomplishment, next to his salvation in Christ, is convincing his wife of 23 years, Kristy, to marry him. Together they have been blessed with a 19-year-old son, Caleb, and a 15-year-old daughter, Ainsley.
