Walter Bowen

Interim Pastor

After a long period of conviction, and personal challenges, Pastor Bowen received Jesus Christ as his Savior in April of 1975, and soon felt led of God to formally study His Word in preparation for ministry.   He is a graduate of Word of Life Bible Institute (1976), Faith Baptist Bible College (1980), and Faith Baptist Theological Seminary (2002).  He has pastored and preached in churches in Iowa and New York.  Acts 20:24 has proven to be an appropriate life verse.

 

Walter has been happily married to Diane for 45+ years.   They have been blessed with four great children (one with special needs), and seven wonderful grandchildren.

 

Other than the studying and sharing of God’s Word, Pastor Bowen enjoys family time, working with his hands, yard work, and walking.

 

He says it has been a joy to become acquainted with the First Baptist Church family, and hopes to be used of God during this interim time.
