Brock Hardin | Pastor
Brock became the pastor of FBC in June 2017. When Brock was 18 years old the Holy Spirit got a hold of his heart and changed him forever. He repented of his sins and by faith trusted in Jesus for salvation. Within two weeks he surrendered to the ministry. In 2006 he joined the FBC staff and stayed until 2009. He came back as student pastor in 2011. He married the love of his life and high school sweetheart Brenn in the summer of 2008. They have three children, Noah, Khloe, and Phoebe. Brock is a dynamic individual who's passion is to see people come to know Christ and to disciple them. Brock's vision is to see Heavener First Baptist become a church built on discipleship. It is his heart's desire to lead the church in living out the Great Commission. 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.
