Welcome to our church website. I hope you can find everything you need here to better help you understand the ministries our church offers. I came to FBC Columbia as Pastor after serving in Student Ministry for 25 years. This is a new role for me and I am looking forward to seeing how God uses me AND His Church to accomplish His purpose. I was born in Columbia, and I believe in and understand small town life. I love the fact that all of its members are able to travel through life together. This includes celebrating victories, supporting each other during losses, and sharing everyday life. I came to know Jesus in a small-town church, and it is this same church that gave me my first official role as a minister. I say official because I believe we are all ministers of Christ, some of us are just fortunate enough to have the vocational calling to serve our Lord. I believe that we serve a jealous God. He expects our full-time devotion to Him – this includes daily devotionals, church attendance, and tithe. To the fullest of my capabilities, I try to lead my family under the same principles. My wife, Shera, and I have been married almost 30 years. She is my partner not only in life, but in ministry. We have five beautiful daughters, four sons-in-law, and three grandsons. As parents, our desire is that our daughters and their families will love and serve the Lord all the days of their lives. I am excited about serving with you here in Columbia. If you ever need me, please know my door is open and I am here for you.
