Brother Raymond Dye serves as FBC’s Lead Pastor. His passion in life is living out the Great Commission found in Matthew 28:19-20. “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them all things that I have commanded you.”

Telling others about the saving power of Jesus Christ has become Brother Ray’s passion since surrendering his life to Jesus Christ. His testimony speaks of the life changing, saving power of Jesus Christ, as well as God’s call on his life to completely surrender into the ministry.

FBC worked through a year and a half interim process to prepare the church for the pastor God would send. The Lord was at the same time preparing Bro. Ray to answer the call to the pulpit. Our prayers were answered with an energetic, hard-working pastor who is truly on fire for Jesus.

Bro. Ray’s background includes leading Bible Study in church, as well as in his home, Children’s Church Leader, Men’s Discipleship Training Leader, and Pulpit Supply Preacher. He surrendered to the ministry in spring of 2020, and was licensed for the ministry June 6, 2021.

Ray is married to his high school sweetheart, Chelsea, who fully supports him in his calling. They have three beautiful daughters, Lilly, age 12, Gracie, age 10, and Cammy, age 9.

Prior to answering his ministry call, Bro. Ray served in the USAF for 15 years as an Integrated Avionics Technician, and continues to serve our country through the Arkansas Air National Guard. 

He earned his Bachelor of Science in Industrial Technology from Southern Illinois University in 2017, and is currently working towards a Master of Theology degree at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
