A Note from Joe

After growing up in cities all across the USA, I’ve claimed the Birmingham area as my home.  My wife (Suzanne), my two boys (Joseph and Vance), and I have been members at First Baptist Church for 4 years. Much of my week is devoted to my work at Samford University, but thanks to a great worship team of leaders, we are able to encourage a thriving music ministry.  My favorite hobby is golf, but since I only play a few times a year, I’m no threat to beat anyone.  Like everyone else in Alabama, I enjoy college sports, the outdoors, and good food.  Worship at FBC is the highlight of my week, and I am grateful to serve alongside the finest staff anywhere.  I hope you will consider visiting FBC and becoming a part of this wonderful family.
