First Baptist Church of Rocky Mount is pleased to announce the calling of the Rev. Luke Lunceford as senior pastor.

Lunceford began his pastorate on April 2 at First Baptist Church. He was raised in the Charlotte area and attended Appalachian State University, where he obtained a bachelor’s degree in communication. He went on to earn his Masters of Divinity from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest. Lunceford comes to Rocky Mount from Boone, where he has served two different churches over the last nine years.

Lunceford is married to his high school sweetheart, Amy. Together they have one daughter and two foster daughters. Luke and Amy enjoy building relationships with anyone and everyone. They believe that aside from the Word of God and the Spirit of God, relationships are the greatest tool God uses to draw people to himself.

Luke and Amy are grateful to serve at First Baptist Church and look forward to how God will use First Baptist for his glory in the Rocky Mount community.

First Baptist gathers to worship the Lord at 10:30 each Sunday. at 200 S. Church Street in Rocky Mount. The congregation would be honored if you would join us
