Lead Pastor

Al was called to be the Christ Baptist Church pastor in early 2021, and he preached his first sermon at CBC on Easter Sunday.  Al believes that strong churches are made up of strong families that are made up of strong parents who are solid disciples of Jesus Christ. His passion is missions and discipleship, and his desire is to help make disciples and put them on mission where the Lord sends them, either in their home communities or abroad.

A lifelong learner, Al enjoys writing, reading, fencing, independent Theological Studies, woodworking and banjo picking. He and his wife, Sandy, are the parents of four adult children, who are all actively serving in our armed forces.
