Ministry Team


Evan Smith, Pastor

Pastor Evan came to First Baptist Church in 2011 as our youth pastor. He served in that role until February 2014 when the church called him as lead pastor. He and Leah were married in 2005 and are the proud parents of two beautiful daughters and one dirt-loving son.

One of his favorite verses is 2 Corinthians 12:9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

Outside of ministry, he enjoys watching the Razorbacks and being outdoors - especially in a deer stand or pair of running shoes.
