Elders:


  • Pastor John Marshall and his wife Luanne

  • Jim Fuhrer

    Elder since 2016

    Jim and his wife Leanna came to FBC in 2012, and has been walking with the Lord for over 50 years. He has worked at the airport for the FAA for 35 years. Jim and Leanna have 4 adult children and 5 grandchildren.

    Jim has been very involved in student ministry in the past, and recently has  focused on ministering in the area of marriage and families. He believes that marriage is so much more than a living arrangement for men and women, it is a model of Christ and the church. It’s much more for the benefit of our spiritual growth than for our happiness. Happiness results naturally, because as we grow in character toward God, we grow toward each    other. Jim’s life is inspired by 2 Chronicles 16:9 – “For the eyes of the Lord roam throughout the earth to show himself strong for those who are wholeheartedly devoted to him.”  Jim wants to be found by God in that way.

     

  • Scott Gamble

    Elder since 2010

    Scott is married to a wonderful woman, Laura for over 30 years. They have 4 children and 7 grandchildren. Scott has lived in Casper for most of his life and has been a follower of Jesus for about 30 years. He and Laura became a part of FBC in 2008. Scott and Laura enjoy spending time at the lake and camping in the mountains.

    Scott’s life and ministry are inspired by two of his favorite verses. Philippians 1:6 – “Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will be faithful to carry it on to completion until the day of Jesus Christ” and Galatians 5:22 – 23 “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace,  forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control. Against such things there is no law.”

     

About us

First Baptist Church is a community of imperfect Christ-followers seeking to live out the adventure of God in our lives. We are growing in Christ together, living life together and unabashedly committed to Jesus' mission to reach the brokenhearted together. 


The mission of First Baptist is to profoundly impact Natrona County, and the world, with the love and healing message of Jesus Christ. Our focus is twofold: to become fully engaged in the journey of spiritual maturity and to step fully into reaching the broken hearted. 


First Baptist Church desires to fulfill and live out this mission through vibrant, authentic community, and a strategic plan that will impact our community and our world. We desire to intentionally engage this mission with an attitude of humility and an abundance of love and grace..
