Associate Pastor of Student Ministries & Worship: Bradley McCarty

In August of 2014, Bradley and his family joined FBC. He and his wife, Amy, have been married for 18 years. He will tell you it has been the best three months of his life (youth pastors have a rare sense of humor). They have three children: Elijah (13), Mayah (11), and Micah (3). Bradley has a passion for worship and seeing youth develop a personal relationship with Christ as they discover their gifts and talents as the church of today. He is excited to be a part of the challenge and call of FBC as we Pursue God and Pursue People!
Church Secretary: Mary McCann
-Mary began as Church secretary in January 2012. She started attending FBC more than 35 years ago with her high school friend, Mike McCann, whose father was the pastor then. Mike & Mary married in 1981 and have three grown sons, one daughter-in-law, and three grandchildren. The flexibility of working part-time has allowed her to continue her education. She will soon receive her Office Assistant Certificate from Northwest State Community College. In her spare time she likes to crochet and spend time with her family. "I am blessed to be in a job that I throughly enjoy. From greeting people as they come into the office, answering the phone, printing bulletins and assisting the pastors, it is my desire to encourage and love others as Christ loves us."
