Ernest "Skip" Parvin, D.Min.
Preaching God's Word and pastoral care are Bro. Skips' passions. He has preached God's word for 36 years. Dr. Parvin holds the following degrees: Bachelor of Science in Education, Master of Theology, and a Doctor of Ministry. He is a strong supporter of missions and has served on various Baptist state and associational committees. Brother Skip has Alabama "roots" in that he was baptized and licensed in Alabama, and he has relatives in the Birmingham and Jasper areas.
These are only a few of his many positive attributes. Won't you come and hear him yourself? He will be preaching at FBC full time beginning March 6th. Come expecting a blessing and you will surely feel His presence!
Michele started work at FBC on August 11, 2002. She was hired as a part-time Financial Secretary. She just celebrated her 15 year anniversary at the church. Michele has been married to James McGaha since December 29, 2004.
They both love to travel, are certified scuba divers and spend time with their families here and in Pensacola, FL.
Upon the retirement of Delores Meeks, secretary of FBC for 30 years, Michele incorporated the secretarial duties into her position.
Her favorite scripture is Jeremiah 29:11-13
11 For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. 12 In those days when you pray, I will listen. 13 If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me."
