The First District Baptist Laymen's Movement was organized in (1930). The National Baptist Voice stated the purpose of the Laymen 's Movement:
"And wherever the Laymen's Movement is organized, the spirit of it will be to see that the pastor is well paid; and to foster and encourage by words and our money the institutions of learning that have made space for Theological Departments, so as to have a better educated ministry, better Sunday School Superintendents, teachers, and B.Y.P.U. workers throughout our denomination."
