First Baptist Church has teams of Coaches and Elders who prayerfully serve and lead various ministries. Elders are primarily responsible to pray for the church and its ministries, see God's vision and direction, and encourage the coaches and their teams that are leading various projects and ministries.
The Elders are John Powers (co-head elder), Cindy Oppelt (co-head elder), Cindy Rusate, Pat Stearns, and Billie Smith.
Coaches are leaders who emphasize a team approach to ministry, thus the term "coach". By God's grace, each coach has the joyous privilege of leading their teams into effective ministry for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and the growth of His church. Current Coaches include Al Messier (Administration), Kate Griffin (Fellowship), Aimee Powers (Worship).
