Office Manager: Ed Micheals

Ed joined FBC staff early in 2018.  Ed came down from the great north woods of Wisconsin to meet a girl and decided to stay.  He has worked in the administrative field in the past and is looking forward to serving the church.  It is his job to make sure the church runs smoothly and is kept informed.  Don't hesitate to call for information or to give information. Ed's hours are 9am-4pm with 30 minutes off at 12:15pm.


Custodian/Maintenance: Bob Hinkleman

Bob works behind the scenes to keep FBC open, in good repair and clean.  He and his wife, Melba, are active members at First Baptist, serving on multiple committees and teaching children in Sunday School.  Bob also leads boys in the Royal Ambassadors on Wednesday evenings.   


Treasurer: Megan Dady Cannon

Megan grew up at First Baptist and although she works full-time for State Fair Community College in their business department, she handles all of our church financial records.  She coordinates with our Stewardship Committee to keep the church finances in proper order.  Megan also serves on FBC’s audio/visual technology team and ensures that we have sound, lights and visuals for our worship services.
