Rex Whitman, Senior Pastor

I look forward to meeting you, but before you come worship with us, let me tell you a little bit about myself.  I wish I could tell you I was an Army Ranger with all kinds of exciting missions completed in far away places, but instead I'm just a short Irishman who loves to tell people about Jesus.  I guess that's a pretty exciting mission.  I grew up in Southeastern Wyoming, went to college in Nebraska, and attended seminary in Kansas City.  Along the way I found a great wife, Susan, and we proceeded to produce three little Whitmans: Matt, Kendra and Mark, who have grown up and given us 5 beautiful grandchildren.   I have had pastorates in Iowa, Colorado, and now Wyoming.  My passion is to reach the state of Wyoming with the gospel of Jesus Christ.  I'd love to have you come and meet some wonderful people here at First Baptist Church.  It's a great place to grow in the Lord and serve Him.  Exciting things are happening and a lot of stuff that is just plain good.  Come and join us!

My wife, Mirjam, and I thoroughly enjoy being at First Baptist Church and having the opportunity to serve and worship our God.  My primary responsibilities as Music, Tech, and Youth coordinator suite me perfectly, having received a BA from Colorado Christian University in Music with an emphasis on Sound Recording Technology and Biblical Studies. I am passionate about worshiping God in all things, and helping to enable others to also worship with excellence (not necessarily perfection).   I like to keep my door cracked open, so feel free to visit any time about anything.
