Meet our Pastors

We are passionate about the Gospel and want to share it with you!

Benjamin Leonard

Benjamin Leonard

Lead Pastor

My passion can be summed up well by the Apostle Paul, “But as for you, teach what accords with sound doctrine (Titus 2:1).” Paul heaps upon this command ten verses of doctrine lived out. As such my passion is to see theology lived out in the lives of believers.

My wife Valerie and I have been married since 2003 after I graduated from Missouri Baptist University with a Bachelor of Arts in Religion. We then moved to Louisville, Kentucky where I pastored a rural church and completed my Masters of Divinity from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. We have been blessed with three energetic boys: Abraham, Jeremiah, and Josiah.

Aaron Miller

Aaron Miller

Associate Pastor

“Since college I have tried to follow the advice in Proverbs 1:7, ‘The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.’ While working with youth for the last 13 years, I have seen in my own life the importance of wisdom and imparting that to the younger generation.”

Aaron has been working with youth since 2003 during his time at College of the Ozarks, where he earned his Bachelor degree. After graduation he has served as a teacher, coach, and elementary principal. He has also been the Associate Pastor at First Baptist Church of Cabool since 2009. During his time here, he and his wife Lindsey have been serving together with the youth and as a deacon in the church. They have two wonderful children Colton and Lillian.

Welcome! We would love to talk with you, so don’t be shy! Get in touch.
