Meet Pastor Wes Stewart

Pastor Wes Stewart grew up in the panhandle of Florida, just outside the city of Pensacola. He was saved in April 1996 under the ministry of Pastor Robert Reierson.

In July 2002, Pastor Stewart surrendered to the call to preach, moving his family to Springfield, Mo. in 2003 to attend Baptist Bible College. While attending college, he and his wife joined Berean Baptist Church in Springfield.  Here at Berean, the Lord began to stir Pastor Stewart’s heart in a different direction.

After completing his first year, Pastor Stewart withdrew from BBC, and began attending the Berean Bible Institute under the leadership of Jeffrey Ables at Berean Baptist Church.  Here, Pastor Stewart completed his doctrinal training while serving the Lord in various minsitries such as the nursing home ministry and Sunday School. He served on staff a little over 2 years as the Youth Director at Berean Baptist Church.

In August 2008, Bible Baptist Church of Cassville, Mo. called Pastor Stewart to be their pastor, where he served until early 2018.

In May of 2017, Faith Baptist Church’s pastor of 50 years, Pastor E.J. Watson announced his retirement, and Faith Baptist Church began the search for a new pastor.  In January of 2018, the church voted to call Pastor Wes Stewart.

In February 2018, Pastor Stewart became the pastor of Faith Baptist Church.

Pastor Stewart and his wife, Natalie have 4 children: Madison, Taylor, Luke, Emily.
