Staff and Leadership

history1First Baptist affirms that all members of the congregation are ‘ministers’, keeping with the historic Baptist conviction that God works through all of the gathered people, not just a select few. The church staff are therefore persons who implement the ministries of the church on behalf of the whole congregation. Our pastor is full-time, and our support staff are employed at quarter time, all working together to help First Baptist congregants bring about their vision for ministry and mission. FBC is ultimately led by its elected lay leaders, who work alongside the pastor and staff to serve and equip all the members of the church for ministry. See below for our current lay leaders.

PASTOR

Bob Wiegers is the pastor of FBC Bennington, beginning December 2015. He and his family are very eager to seek the Lord’s blessings together in prayer, in preaching and teaching the Bible, and in fellowship and service together. You can learn more about him on the About Pastor Bob page. You can contact him at PastorBobWiegers@gmail.com

PIANIST

Rachel McDill is our pianist and church musician. She is skilled in multiple instruments, and she brings much experience and enthusiasm as she helps lead the church in worship each week.

SEXTON

John Harwood, III, is the Sexton. The longest serving present staff member, John has been at First Baptist since 1996, providing care for the facilities and keeping the building humming.
