Rev. Dontavious Little, Sr.

Rev. Dontavious D. Little, Sr. is a seasoned professional serving individuals inside and outside the faith-based community through his passion for education, rehabilitation, and community service. Since 2010, Donté (as he is affectionately known) has served in numerous roles at the Alabama Institute for Deaf and Blind (AIDB) including temporary part-time employee, dorm aide, teacher, and administrator, all with the goal of leveling the playing for individuals with vision and hearing differences. He currently serves at the Assistant Executive Director at the E. H. Gentry Facility where he assists with various aspects of overall program development.

Pastor Little holds an MBA from Troy University; a Master's in Business Education from Auburn University, and a Master of Arts degree in Special Education with Visual Impairment Certification from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. He is currently taking coursework towards an advanced educational degree in Christian Leadership from Liberty University.
True to his passion to help others develop naturally and spiritually, he has served as a Youth Pastor, Associate Pastor, Community Outreach Director, and is most honored to serve as the Pastor of First Missionary Baptist Church of Anniston, AL. He is also an active member of the Theta Tau Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Incorporated. Through these roles, he has gained valuable experiences in preaching, teaching, outreach, business management, and working collaboratively with large and small groups to achieve goals. However, he attributes his success to his parents, Pastor Paula Little and the late Pastor Donald Little. His parents and countless others have served as great spiritual and professional mentors—road guides with more knowledge and experience than his own.

Above all, his greatest achievements are being happily married to his college sweetheart, Tamara Little, and being the father of 5 amazing children: Dontavious, Jr., Dylan, Daleigh, Declan, and Donaldson. Pastor Little is a proud member of the Anniston-Oxford community and considers it an esteemed honor to serve his community.
