Our Deacons
The Deacon body of First Baptist Church West Plains is currently made up of 35 ordained and active men. The Deacons are nominated and elected from the church body and must meet certain qualifications, mainly those set forth in the New Testament of the Bible (1 Timothy 3:8-13).

Deacons are to be servants of the church and are available to assist the Pastor. Every Deacon of First Baptist Church is to model the Christian faith by maturing in the wisdom of the Lord and growing in faith, thus enriching and strengthening our church family. Deacons are to live their lives for Christ and develop godly leadership that will point others to know our God and Savior, Jesus Christ.


Chairman of Deacons,
Jeff Barber
