Here We Go Again!

Our former pastor, Bro. Danny, has answered God’s call to lead our local Baptist Association of churches. So, for the first time in almost twenty three years, LFBC has begun the process through which God will reveal who our next senior pastor will be. We are walking through the Intentional Interim program which will aid in the pastoral transition and prepare our church for her next great spritual adventure. Please lift us in prayer as we listen to God’s Spirit and work lift up the name of Jesus, our Lord.

Alan Johnston

Bro. Alan joined the staff at LFBC  in April of 1998. Before their  marriage, He and Tracy, were very active in the collegiate ministry at  Arkansas Tech and Alan felt that,  perhaps, the Lord was preparing  him for work in that field. But God  had other plans. Fifteen years at  LFBC, a lovely new wife, and two  adorable (and active!) baby boys  have removed all thoughts of that  "other" ministry. Completely dedicated to the  students under his care, Bro. Alan's goal is to see that our Youth and  College ministries continue to  offer a variety of activities that  cover all of the  spiritual,  emotional, and physical needs of  today's young men and women.

Kristin Mengis

Miss Kristin Mengis joined the LFBC staff in late August, 2009 and, since that time, she has continously brought excitement and new ideas to our Children's Ministry.  Miss Kris leads our Children’s Worship Service on Sunday mornings.  ‘Worship Kidstyle’ is a favorite with the kids and “allows kids to worship like kids”. In addition to Sunday Morning worship, Miss Kris oversees ‘TeamKid’ on Wednesday evenings as well as “The Big Thing!” on Sunday nights.  She works very hard to make sure LFBC has one of the most exceptional Children’s Ministries Around.

Brent & Dania Efird

Mrs. Dania Efird wears many  ‘ministry hats’ at LFBC.  She  serves as both Women’s Ministry  Director and Preschool Director.  In addition,  Dania teaches  preschool TeamKid on Wednesday evenings as well as coordinating  Date Nights for LFBC parents,  simulcast events, and a host of  other fun and important activities.  Her husband, Brent, Serves as  Men’s Ministry coordinator as well  as heading up the “Financial Peace  University” training at LFBC. 

Our Staff

While every member is a minister at LFBC, the bible teaches that every church needs a dedicated person or group of persons to oversee and organize the overall work of the ministry.  We refer to ours as simply, “The Staff”.

The One Who Is Coming

Presently, LFBC is ‘between’  worship leaders.  We are actively  searching for the man who will  lead us to praise the Lord in song  and thanksgiving.  Our desire is for someone who  fully embraces the concept of the  ‘blended service’.  Everyone in the  service can expect the oportunity  to worship in his/her own unique  way.
