Why do we FAST? Mount Carmel, when you FAST in the right way with the right motives, God will reward you openly! The Daniel Fast is a twenty-one day FAST of only vegetables, fruit, and water. It includes no bread, no pasta, and no meat. During the 21 days of FASTING, beginning on January 13th, your focus and purpose should be to take your eyes off the things of this world, and to focus completely on God while relying on Him for strength, provision, and wisdom.  While FASTING, you will want to read more…

Our Pastor

Reverend Rickardo Taylor, Sr. is the fifth pastor of Mount Carmel Missionary Baptist Church of South Bend, Indiana. He accepted the call from God to enter into the gospel ministry at the age of 28, under the guidance and leadership of his father, the late Reverend Dorsey Taylor, and loving support of his mother, Geraldine Taylor. Being a second generation minister, Reverend Taylor continued to walk in his fathers footsteps, and was called to pastor Mount Carmel MBC in 1998; twenty-five years after his father had led the congregation.

Reverend Taylor has grown to become a spirit filled man of God, gifted by the Holy Spirit in the areas of teaching and professing the divine word of God, with a burning desire to bring men back to their ordained position of leadership in the church and in their homes. Reverend Rickardo Taylor, Sr. was born on July 1, 1963 in Michigan City, Indiana and is the fourth son of six boys. He grew up and attended grade and high school in Michigan City, but chose Grambling State University, a historically black school, for his college education. In his mission to have a comprehensive understanding of the word of God, Reverend Taylor earned his Bachelors degree in Theology from Bethel College of South Bend.

As a crier for Christ, inspirational speaker, community leader, lover of Gods people, devoted husband and father, and dedicated pastor, Reverend Taylor demonstrates a tireless and relentless effort to the Mount Carmel family and the South Bend community. During his 21-year tenure at Mount Carmel, Pastor Taylor has provided the leadership and guidance for many seeds to be sown and the vision for many previous prayers to manifest into blessings. These bountiful blessings are evident in the tremendous growth of Mount Carmel, both in spirit and in numbers. Over the years the blessings and Gods favor have brought about various Youth Ministries, Drama Ministry, Mens Ministry, Health &Wellness Ministry and a host of other ministries with the sole purpose of reaching and teaching others about Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.

As a productive member of the South Bend Community, Reverend Rickardo Taylor, Sr. was a teacher for the South Bend Community School Corporation where he and his Building Trade students, built 7 family homes that were purchased by members of the community. Reverend Taylor serves as a Chaplin of the 100 Black Men and he serves on the Board of Trustee at Bethel College.


Reverend Taylor is also a very devoted and compassionate husband, to wife Marcia, and the loving and proud father of three children; Rickardo Jr., Aundrea, and Marlon. Reverend Rickardo Taylor, Sr. is committed to serving God and the needs of the congregation that he has been appointed to lead. It is through his use of universal principles regarding spirituality that he shares practical tools for all of Gods children to lead joyous, abundant, peaceful, and truly blessed lives.



Welcome to Mount Carmel Missionary Baptist Church. We are a church without
walls, where we believe and recognize that the children of God are the true

is an opportunity to show the love and favor of Jesus Christ; our Lord and Savior.
We welcome you to join us for service. Mount Carmel is located on the southeast
side of South Bend, Indiana. You will be greeted with a smile, you will be
welcomed with open arms and the love of God. Where the sign may say Baptist,
but the spirit says every soul is welcome and the spirit is available to all.
