Our Pastor

I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. 

Galatians 2:20

Pastor Drew Stockton

Pastor Drew received the call to lead God’s church at 18 years of age and has fulfilled that call for 22 years. He served as a youth pastor, an executive, and a missions pastor before answering the call to the mission field in Nicaragua. Pastor Drew and his family have served as international missionaries for five years, serving the local church in Granada, Nicaragua. They moved back to the US in the early summer of 2023 due to issues with the government and their visas, which would not permit them to stay in the country. Pastor Drew and his family sought the Lord’s will in their ministry when the opportunity to be a candidate for the Senior Pastor position at Rockwood First Baptist presented itself. After an unexpected journey, Pastor and his family look forward to seeing what the Lord will do in Rockwood, Tennessee. Please pray for Pastor Drew and his wonderful family, Laura, his wife, and Ethan, their son.
