With Brock's great leadership abilities and a consuming burden for the nations, Brock plans to make the Gospel known to the entire world.

 

 Sam Dyer | Associate Pastor

After serving as pastor of FBC for 16 years, Sam switched to the role of associate pastor in June 2017.   His passion for leading people to Jesus and helping them to grow in their relationship with God is apparent within the first few minutes of meeting him.  His style of leadership encourages  those in the church to serve and disciple others.  This is evidenced by the number of ministries the people of First Baptist are involved in to reach and serve those in our town and surrounding communities. Sam and his wife Lisa have three children and seven grandchildren. Sam is well known in Heavener and throughout Oklahoma for feeding the hungry of the community, coon hunting,  and raising cattle and show pigs.
