Arnold Hendrix is our pastor. He was a commercial banker for over 22 years before accepting God’s call into the ministry. His passion is to proclaim God’s Word in such a way that it connects, and creates life-change with listeners. He is married to Marilyn, and they have one daughter, Meredith, who lives in League City, Texas, with her husband Michael, and their grandson, Jon (4). Arnold is a graduate of The University of West Florida and attended New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. Before being called to First Baptist Church in 2005, he served as pastor of Corinth Baptist Church, Cordova, Alabama, and interim pastor of his home church, First Baptist Church, Valparaiso, Florida.
