Dr. John Lewis, Senior Pastor
Dr. Lewis has served at Faith since 1998 when he came to us from Harvest Baptist Church of Guam. Before pastoring there for 19 years, he attended Bible college in Tennessee, and worked as a successful businessman. Dr. Lewis very capably leads our preaching ministry. Also under his leadership, the Lord has graciously provided us with a lovely new worship facility. Pastor Lewis also serves on the Executive Board of Bob Jones University. He and Becky have two married children and five grandchildren.
Before coming to Faith in 1995, Pastor Gearhart served as a youth pastor for five years and then pastor of three ministries in Michigan. He attended Maranatha Baptist Bible College. Pastor Gearhart serves in various ministries of our church. He and Mary have four adult children, two of whom are married. They have seven grandsons.

Dr. Nagengast provides leadership to our students in grades K-4 through 12. He attended Bob Jones University. Dr. Nagengast and Jackie have two married children and three at home.
Pastor Edd Bowen, Youth Pastor

Here he oversees our youth ministries and works specifically with the junior and senior high youth groups, as well as important outreach ministries. Pastor Bowen and Jena have four children at home and a big dog.
Pastor Curt Dunn, Music Pastor
Although Pastor Dunn has recently joined the staff, he is certainly not new to our ministry. Like Pastor Bowen, Curt grew up in this church and attended Bob Jones University. After marrying Annie, whom he met while in choir at BJU, Curt and Annie ministered in two different churches in the great state of Connecticut for a total of fifteen years. He joined the staff here in the summer of 2011, and he brings to Faith a passion for Christ-honoring traditional music that edifies the believers and exalts our great Savior. He also oversees the various technologies of the church, including the computer and sound systems. He and Annie have three small but very active children.
