Meet Our Pastors


As the pastors of this ministry, we can say with conviction that First Baptist of Jackson is a place you can call home. God has an incredible plan for each and every human being and our church truly cares about everyone He brings to this ministry. You will find more than friendly faces; you'll find ministries specifically designed to strengthen your walk with our Lord. Our passion for discipleship, our love for the word of God, and our commitment to take the gospel to the entire world in order to fulfill the Great Commission will encourage you to daily participate as a co-laborer together with Christ.

If you are looking for a church home, you should seriously consider First Baptist of Jackson.

Pastors Rory Wineka, Jay Baughman, Thomas Gang, Stephen Wineka, Rufus Hofelt.
