Dr Richard Weaver
Our senior pastor, recently arrived in June 2019, has 27 years of experience in full-time ministry, most recently as a missionary to Scotland for 16 years, where he planted and grew the Almond Valley Baptist Church of Livingston, Scotland. He is married with 3 college-age children, all attending Pensacola Christian College in Florida.
He graduated from college and seminary with degrees in Missions, Evangelism, Ministry and Theology. Having lived in fourteen different places before the age of eighteen, Richard was an expert at packing, moving, and traveling. This came in handy as he and his lovely wife, Brenda, traveled around the country, visited hundreds of churches, completed deputation twice and over 40 international flights. Together, Richard and Brenda have lived in four states, raised three adult children, ministered in two countries, and shared one common goal — knowing God and making Him known. With all their travels, Richards consistently cheers for two teams — Alabama Crimson Tide and Scotland’s Livingston Lions.
Our assistant pastor, along with his wife Madison, arrived to our church in 2018. He is a graduate of Crown College and with 5-years of ministry experience in New Jersey as an assistant pastor. He is a talented preacher and gifted brass and piano musician, with a heart for soul winning and youth ministry.
