Meet the Team
Since the beginning of First Baptist Woodstock in 1837, we have invested in the Woodstock community and are passionate about sharing the gospel throughout our city and the world. We have a committed team of leaders who are excited to use their abilities to the glory of God and the good of this community.About us
“My husband and I serve here because we’ve been in tough situations in our life, and we know what it’s like to struggle. We don’t think anyone should go hungry, and getting to help others is a blessing.”PatPat and her husband Jerry regularly serve in the Food Pantry together. She shared their heart for serving others.
“It’s deeply encouraging to see the way these men respond to any kind of opportunity to bless others. If iron sharpens iron, then these are the kind of men I want sharpening me.”AbdelAbdel has been a deacon for one year. One of his favorite parts of being a deacon is the friends that serve alongside him.
“Serving the community is such a blessing. I hear stories of hardships families have, and I get to pray with them and encourage them that God has not left their side. I also love that I get to watch my coworkers serve people so well.”ValeriaValeria is the director of Thrive, our ministry for people with special needs. She’s also relentlessly consistent with community service in other capacities.
“God is not silent with His people. He desires to use people to build up His kingdom, and He uses people who come to Him with hearts open to His wisdom, guidance, and power.”AnthonyAnthony became our NextGen pastor in 2020. The Nashville native articulates what the Lord has taught him recently.
“It’s all about that middle-of-the-week connection with fellow believers. I love getting to see our students in different settings, and I wouldn’t want to miss an opportunity to invest in them.”KellyKelly serves as a leader in our high school ministry. She shared why midweek activities matter so much for relationships with students.
“After I joined, I began looking for ways to give my talents, treasure and time to the church. I considered joining orchestra, but I was able to listen in on a Wednesday night band practice. Shortly after that, I began playing with the team.”PercyPercy plays bass for our worship band, having joined the church in 2018. He explained his journey to get involved.
