I am so very glad to be the Pastor of First Baptist Church Anson. God has placed my heart in this community and I desire to see revival and renewal among the people of Jones County ~ Mathew St. John

Mathew came to Anson in June of 2010 from the Rio Grande Valley.  Prior to that he had been ministering in San Antonio TX.  He recently completed a DMin at Logsdon Seminary focusing on discipling. He earned an M.Div in 2004 from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.  In 1992 he graduated from Texas A&M Galveston with a degree in Marine Biology.  He is a certified teacher and taught high school science for 5 years.  He also enjoyed a short stint as an adjunct professor of Church History for Howard Payne University.

Preaching the Word, the lovely parts and the hard parts, is key to how Mathew feels called and equipped for ministry.

Associate Pastor of Students and Worship - Scott Spruill

Scott and his family came to Anson in December 2018. Scott married his wife Paige in 2011 and have a daughter named Skylar and a son named Elijah.

Scott has been working in youth ministry in some capacity since 2009. In 2014 he became the Student Pastor at Highland Baptist Church in Lubbock, TX until he came to Anson. Scott received his Bachelors of Christian Ministry from Wayland Baptist University and has been working towards a Masters.

Scott’s desire is for students to be the frontlines of sharing the gospel. God doesn’t ask us to be a certain age or “level” in our faith before we start sharing the gospel. So his main desire as a student pastor is to disciple young men and women to continue the cyclical process of discipleship and find another to lead closer to Christ!
