Hello! Thank you so much for taking time to look at my quick bio! It is my family's upmost honor and privilege to worship alongside and serve First Southern Baptist Church. I began God's ministry here at FSBC in 2012. In 2015, God blessed my family and I by allowing us to continue serving FSBC as the Associate Pastor of Worship and Youth Ministry. God's mercy continued and in November of 2017, God provided the way to allow me to continue serving here at FSBC as Senior Pastor.

Just a few things about me and my family: My beautiful wife, Nicole, and I have been married since June of 2010. We are infinitly blessed with our son, Samuel David who was born in May of 2016. Both my wife and son are so awesome, and I am so humbled to do life with them! First Southern Baptist Church holds a deep and special part of our hearts, and we thank God He has given us this opportunity to serve in the church and community we love.

Speaking of love, we serve a God who loves every person on this earth fiercly and unapologetically. Here at FSBC, we hold on to that love as we know that we are sinners in need of a Savior; and praise the Lord, through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, we have access to God through His Grace and a relationship with Him.

Here at FSBC, we pray you see the love of God first, followed by love for our brothers and sisters. FSBC is not a shrine for perfect people or for those who have it all figured out. Quite the opposite, FSBC is a place where broken people come together in our common need for God, holding on to the Hope found in Jesus Christ alone. God is so good, and we would love to have you come join us as we come to worship Him. Romans 5:8 says, "But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." How beautiful is the truth that God showed His love for us by sending His Son to come save us even though we never earned or deserved it, and never will! Here at FSBC, we encourage you to come as you are. God accepts us as we are, yet in His mighty power He promises us that in His work through us, we will not stay as we are. He wants to radically and completely transform our lives for His glory!

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call or email me! I can't wait to meet you in person! If we are graced with your presence here at FSBC, please come find me, I would love to talk with you and get to know you! I pray you always know the Joy and Peace of Jesus Christ in every part of your lives. God bless you!

Hi and welcome to FSBC Kids! My name is Debbie Morgan. My husband, Monte and I were married in 1984 and have been blessed with two grown boys. We became members of First Southern Baptist Church in 1998, and I rededicated my life to Jesus in 2003. That is when my true and full understanding of Jesus' love for us began, and God called me into children's ministry. I began as a volunteer, and as my love for the Lord grew, so did my passion for teaching His Word. I was blessed to join the staff on a part-time basis in January 2017, and I received my diploma in Children's Ministry from KidMin Academy in October 2017. 

Even in my brokenness, I know that God loves me. He loves us all. I have many "favorite" verses, but the ones that God shows me regularly are Isaiah 55:8-9 and Luke 6:45. God is BIG and He is WONDERFUL, and if we allow Him, He will change our hearts and shine His light trhough us. Let us share with you God's greatness! I look forward to meeting you!

Hi! It is my family's privilege to worship alongside and serve at First Southern Baptist Church. I began attending FSBC in 2013. I began working in youth ministry here at FSBC in 2017. I also enjoy making noise to the Lord on drums during our Sunday services.

My wife Sara and I have been married since December of 1993. We have one daughter, Mallori, who was born in 2004. My wife works with the clothing pantry, child

Great music!  Great friendships!  Great times!  But most of all we are growing together as we worship our Great God!!!  Join Pastor Wrex, our band (the Flame), and our group of believers as we seek to follow God.  

Pastor Wrex (aka John Bouchard) has been a youth minister and a teacher for many years.  He has been married to Sara for over 25 years.  They have one daughter, Mallori, one rather mean chihuahua, and two goldfish.  

You will be most welcome to join us for Fire Student Ministries on Wednesday nights during the school year!

ren’s church, and in the sound booth. First Southern Baptist Church has been an amazing family to be a part of!

My core belief is that God loves everyone. There is room for you in God’s kingdom, as it says in John 14: “Don’t let this throw you. You trust God, don’t you? Trust me. There is plenty of room for you in my Father’s home. If that weren’t so, would I have told you that I’m on my way to get a room ready for you? And if I’m on my way to get your room ready, I’ll come back and get you so you can live where I live.””

My prayer for you is that you take a taste of what God has to offer. Once you have genuinely tried what God has for you, you will never be satisfied by anything else!

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call or email me! I would be glad to have you plug into our church family!
