First Baptist Church, Haynesville, is excited to be welcoming their new pastor, Bro. Jeff Tinsley, from Helena, GA. He and his wife, Andrea, and their three children, Aiden (7), Adyline ( 5), and Andrew (1) will be arriving the first week of February, with his first Sunday in the pulpit on February 5, 2017.
Bro. Jeff surrendered to full-time ministry at the age of 18 and began his Biblical training at Brewton Parker College after high school and afterward completing New Orleans Seminary. He worked as a youth minister for several years before accepting his first pastorate. Since that time, he has pastored over 8 years in Georgia before accepting the position here. Bro. Jeff has driven a school bus and is currently the chaplain for the Mc-Rae-Helena Fire Department.
Bro. Jeff stated that he believes the role of the pastor is to not only help rekindle the lost passion of bringing souls into His kingdom, but to also equip fellow believers to become Christian leaders, so the church will be built up and the name of Christ will be glorified.
FBC in Haynesville invites all to come meet Bro. Jeff Tinsley and to welcome him and his family into our community.
