  • Dr. Jacob West

    Lead Pastor

    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, our oldest, loves tumbling.  Ryan is often my sidekick in the deer blind.  Natalie 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.

  • Greg hall

    Worship Pastor

    My name is Greg Hall and I am the Worship Pastor at FBC.   My wife Beth and I have four grown children:  three sons, Jake, Grayson and Chris, and our daughter Caitlin.  I have been in ministry for over 30 years serving as Youth Minister and Music Minister and have sung with Beth in many churches, revivals, and conferences.  I enjoy playing golf, cooking/grilling, and spending time with my family.  I love leading people in worship each week because God has proven Himself faithful over and over in my life.  He is so good!

  • Lori brown

    University & Family pastor

    Hello!  My name is Lori Brown, and I am the Family and University Pastor at First Baptist.  My husband Donnie works at Wayland, and we are blessed to have four amazing children: Joshua and his wife Abi, and Hannah and her husband Jesse.  Prior to working in vocational ministry, I was a Speech-Language Pathologist for many years, so individuals with special needs hold a special place in my heart. 

    I am excited about the opportunity to invest in the lives of all of our children and their families.  I love investing in our university students too during that time in their lives when they are discovering their identity and who God wants them to be. It is my hope that our families and university students will find a home at First Baptist where they can use their God-given gifts to serve Him and to serve our community.
