Church Leadership

Pastor Bill Morris

The Pastor's role is to lead the Church by providing Godly teaching, Godly example, and Godly wisdom

I believe the Christian church, as the Bride of Christ (Eph 5:25, Rev 19:7), and as the “pillar and support of the truth,” (1 Tim 3:15), is the most important institution in the world. Jesus died for the church, is building the church, and is returning for His church. I consider it a privilege to serve Jesus through Lyman First Baptist Church. One of the greatest joys I have is to see people grow in their understanding of, and love for the Lord Jesus Christ as they participate in the life of the local church.

I hope you will join us for this great journey!

Minister of Music and Senior Adults Jim Carey

The Music Minister's job is to lead our musical worship to God

My wife, Kim, and I are filled with joy and anticipation at what God has planned to do in us and through us as we serve together with the First Lyman family. There is no greater honor than to be entrusted with the task of leading God’s people into His presence through worship. I love practicing for the eternal worship we will give to the King of Kings! Eph 5:19-20 "…speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord; [20] always giving thanks for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God, even the Father;" (NASB)

Family Minister Joey Bodie

The Family Minister works directly with families and children to provide Godly influence in their lives.

I'm a debtor of costly, eternal grace. His gospel has become for me His power for salvation, and all I’ve contributed is the sin that made it all necessary.

The gospel comes to us full of grace and truth. As Timothy Keller has written, “We are more sinful and flawed in ourselves than we ever dared believe, yet at the very same time we are more loved and accepted in Jesus Christ than we ever dared hope.” Have you experienced the Jesus of the Bible- full of grace and truth?

At First Baptist Lyman, it’s my passion to equip families in applying the gospel to a thousand life circumstances. Does the grace and truth of the gospel have any bearing on your marriage? Do you see yourself—rather than your youth pastor—as the primary disciple-maker in your child’s life? May our ministries partner with parents so that they are acknowledged, trained, and held accountable for the spiritual formation of their children to the glory of God!
