Our former pastor, Dr. Bobby Pennington, retired on February 25. He and his wife, Sadie, had faithfully served the Lord at FBC for 31 years. We do not have a regular pastor at this point, but our church has voted to enter an Intentional Interim ministry. While we will miss Bro. Bobby and Sadie, we look to the future as God continues to bless and direct our church. Please pray with us as we seek the man to lead our church.
Bob Endel is the Music and Worship minister. He is married to Lequieta (Reed) Endel and they have one son, who is also a music minister. He started as a band director, but knew God had placed a call on his life for full time service. Bob was called to FBC Hamburg, Arkansas in 2003. "I love many different styles of music. I love the new praise and worship songs, but I will always be committed to the truth of hymns."
