Meet Pastor Les and Debbie (Secretary)
Debbie and I both grew up in Kansas. We invested twenty years in pastoral ministry there. After serving fourteen years in our previous church, we both felt called by the LORD to Indiana. The way was opened to us at First Baptist Church in Bluffton. We have served at FBC since January, 2013.
Three words that describe me and my ministry style pretty well are organized, communicator, and excellence. Those who know me recognize that the Holy Spirit has given me the gift of administration. I have a God given capacity to coordinate a multitude of people and activities to make things run more smoothly and effectively. In keeping with this gift, my preaching is never just a bunch of vague ramblings. My messages usually focus on a single passage of Scripture and concentrate on one main idea. I use power point slides, an occasional video clip, and relevant illustrations to reinforce this central theme. Supporting my drive for both organization and communication is a deep passion for excellence. I challenge myself and this church body to give our best effort in everything - for God’s glory.
I enjoy fishing, golf, and watching sports on television. Around here a lot of people fish for bluegill. I prefer going after large mouth bass. But I will haul in anything that strikes the line. If you are from Wells County or are passing through this area, please stop by. We would enjoy getting to know you.
Make it a great day!
