Senior Pastor |
Conner was called to the Senior Pastor position at First Baptist in June of 2019. He grew up with a great interest in sports, and originally wanted to pursue a career in broadcast journalism. However, during his college years he began to sense a call to vocational ministry. After receiving a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Oklahoma, he met his wife, Emily, on a mission trip. They were married in the spring of 2014 and now have two young children. Conner is currently completing his Master of Divinity degree from Southern Seminary (Louisville, KY). He is eager to see you at one of our Sunday services, and would be excited to meet with you over a cup of coffee—or a round of golf!


Associate Pastor |
Matt was called to serve as Associate Pastor of First Baptist in 2016. He oversees the worship ministry, youth ministry, and Christian Education. Matt graduated with a Bachelors in Ministry Leadership from Cornerstone University (Grand Rapids, MI) in 2011, and a Masters in Biblical and Theological Studies from Knox Theological Seminary (Fort Lauderdale, FL) in 2017. He married his wife, Nicole, in April 2000, and together they have 8 children. He enjoys Mountain Dew, watching movies, reading and spending quality time with his family.
