I have had the privilege of being the pastor of First Newark since 2008. I love these folks! I am grateful that God called me here.
I also love my family! I have been married to Angela since 1989, and God had blessed us with some great kids. Our oldest daughter, Meredith, is married to Ryan West, and in 2017 God brought a little boy, Myles, into their lives. Our son, Ethan, is married to Cassidee, and they also had an addition in 2017, their son Coleson. As any grandparent can attest, Myles and Coleson are such a blessing and joy to our family! Emily is our youngest daughter, and she is a senior in High School and soon to be headed to college. I am one blessed man!
It is my desire to see people become fully devoted followers of Christ. May God be glorified through the ministry of First Newark!
I was born in Thomasville, GA. I have been married 31 years this year to Randy Wilcox. I am blessed with a wonderful family: Kyle Wilcox, Ashley Wilcox, Stephen & Jenna (Wilcox) Coffee and further blessed to be called “Jeje” by my 7 year old granddaughter, Katie Belle Coffee. We are members at Gatlin Creek Baptist Church.
It has been my pleasure to work at First Newark Baptist Church since God led me here in August of 2004. I look forward to continuing to serve Him here!
