Zach Phillips - Lead Pastor
I have been serving as the Lead Pastor of Atkins FBC since November 2018. I previously served at Atkins FBC from 2013-2017 as Student and Worship Pastor, and also served as Youth Pastor at Central Baptist Church in Prescott, AR from 2017-2018.
I am originally from Magnolia, which is where I grew up and graduated from high school. My dad faithfully pastored a few small baptist churches around Magnolia, so I grew up attending church each week. However, even though I grew up in church I didn't come to know Jesus until I was 16. I met my wife, Katie, during our time at Central Baptist College in Conway, and by God's grace we have been married since 2014! We have the best dog named Lady, and you can usually find her at the church with me throughout the week!
I am deeply passionate about expositional preaching, and believe that church health begins with a healthy pulpit. My desire for Atkins FBC is that we would be a family of believers who know and worship God rightly, and that our lives would be marked by joy-filled obedience and satisfaction in Him.
