Dr. Greg Barmer
Dr. Gregory Barmer began his ministry at FBC in May 1995 as the Minister of Music. He is a graduate of East Carolina University, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, and the Institute of Worship Studies. He and his wife Lisa are the parents of two children, Sarah and Andrew. Greg is an active pianist and choral conductor in the community. He has a special interest in worship renewal and meaningful worship experiences for our congregation.
God began calling him to a new type of ministry over the last few years and simultaneously the church felt lead to call him as Pastor. This is truly a God story that has just begun and we look forward to where God leads us together. Greg was Commissioned and Installed as Pastor on Feb. 18, 2018
Rev. Jesse Davis

Jesse enjoys leading multigenerational musical worship in all its variety. Besides being an accomplished pianist, he has taught many talented young musicians. His propensity for teaching is not limited to music, as it is biblically, historically and culturally informed. One of his favorite books is Counter Culture and a favorite song is Living Hope.

He has served in various capacities of Student Ministry for eight years. He is married to Jennifer and they have three children: Tylon, Asher, and Ezekiel.
