  • Senior Pastor

    Jimmie Mcchristial

    Jimmie McChristial began serving as Senior Pastor at First Baptist Counce in June of 2011. Prior to being called to serve here at FBC, he has served churches in Georgia as well as his native Texas. 

    A gifted teacher, Jimmie has the natural ability to go in-depth with God's Word while making the message relatable to all people, even those with non-church backgrounds. His sermons are applicable and straightforward, and they resonate with young and old alike. His life experiences allow him to connect with people from all walks of life. No matter what you're going through, there's a good chance that Jimmie can relate.

    Some pastors show up on Sundays and disappear the rest of the week, but Jimmie wants to meet you and get to know your heart. He’s always the last person to leave the church campus, whether he’s praying with someone in the sanctuary or talking in the parking lot. Jimmie has a genuine love for this church and its people, and it shines through in everything he does.

    Jimmie and his wife Allison have two beautiful girls, Madison and Grace. They love their ministry at FBC Counce, and can’t wait to see what else God continues to have in store for their family, their church and the entire Counce-Pickwick Lake area.
