Pastor Chip Bungard
Chip began serving as our Pastor in June of 2012. He has a passion for preaching God’s word in a clear and relevant way. He and his wife, Shannon, have been married since November 18, 1995. They have 5 kids – Tyler, Christina, Alex, Nathan and Michelle. They also proud owners of a crazy dog Lilly, a mischievous cat Mittens, two guinea pigs, and some lovely fish. Chip has a passion to inspire the community to LIVE a LEGACY.
Lacie and husband, Drew, were married at FBC in April 2007. Born and raised here (her parents are long-time members), she is now raising their two boys, Levi and Aiden, with the same values that were instilled by her church and family. Living in the country just outside of Goessel gives her opportunities to enjoy the outdoors with her boys. She enjoys being creative and being involved with her children and their activities.
With a desire to serve and the joy that comes with it, she is a great fit for children’s ministry. She says, “There is nothing better than watching our children experience God’s love and accepting Christ to grow their faith!”

Amanda is our Childrens’ Ministry Director. She and her husband, John, have been married since October 2014. They have a daughter, Kennedi, and a son, Lincoln, and will be welcoming their 3rd baby in February 2019. She enjoys spending her free time with her family making memories and volunteering to serve others. She is excited to lead the Children’s Ministry and watch the children’s passion and love for Christ grow.
