Lead pastor

Dr. Jacob West


Greetings from First Baptist Plainview.  My name is Jacob West, Lead Pastor of this congregation.  I joined the staff on December 11, 2017.  Prior to coming to Plainview I served as Senior Pastor at First Baptist Stamford for nine years.  While in Stamford, my wife, Emily, and I received the blessings of three children.  Ellie is nine and loves tumbling.  Ryan is seven and is often my sidekick in the deer blind.  Natalie is five and likes to sling a purse on her shoulder, grab a set of keys and walk to the door announcing plans for a shopping trip.


Emily and I are thrilled to be in Plainview and live out God's call, as we serve the body of Christ and raise our family.  We are blessed to be part of this church family.
