Pastoral Staff
"Call unto me and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not."

Jeremiah 33:3
Pastor Waddle is the Senior Pastor of First Baptist Church. The Lord sent him here from Tennessee in July of 2007. He has been in the pastorate for thirteen years, nine of those years as senior pastor and four as assistant/youth pastor. He is a graduate of Pensacola Christian College.

The Lord has blessed us with Pastor Waddle and his messages from the Word of God. He preaches the whole Word of God without compromise.  His caring of his church family is such a wonderful encouragement to all of us.

Pastor and his wife, Rachael, have four children: Caleb, Emily, Timothy, and Luke.

Pastor Waddle encourages you to come see what we are all about if you do not have a home church.

We are happy to have with us on staff, Pastor Nathan Metcalf. He began his ministry here in January of 2013. He works with the teens, is the principal of LaSalle-Peru Christian School, is a talented carpenter, and works in many, many ways in the church. 

Pastor Metcalf and his wife, Rachael, moved their family down from Minnesota. While in Minnesota, they both served with the teens, Pastor Metcalf taught in a Christian school, and they worked in the church in many different ways.

The Metcalfs are the parents of five children: Riley, Charlie, Caleb, Connor, and Gideon.
