Meet our Senior Pastor

Dr. Ron Wilcoxson is our Senior Pastor.  He brings a new vision to our church in Blytheville, leading us to provide Spirit-filled worship, family oriented Bible study in Blytheville and beyond, and creating ministries for each member of the family.  He has served as the lead Pastor in churches as large as 2100 members and 1600 in average attendance.  His churches have typically been fast growing with lots of people making professions of faith in Christ.  He has been a pioneer in leading multiple services per Sunday, with multiple styles, although for the last 15 years, his churches have been primarily contemporary worship churches.  Dr. Ron has been married to Angela for 44 years.  They have four grown kids, with 2 that serve vocationally as worship leaders. Dr. Ron is committed to a healthy and strong children's & youth ministry, which includes outstanding daycare.  He also loves worshiping, teaching and leading others to Jesus.  And, he's pretty good at golf, too.
