    Danny joined the First Baptist family in 2018 after having served churches in   North Carolina, Tennessee & Florida.  He grew up in St. Tammany Parish where      he and his wife, Ronda were married.  They have two sons, Eric and Ryan.     Danny’s greatest passion in ministry is helping people grow in their relationship   with Christ and seeing others mature as believers.  He is also committed to the  idea that Christ’s church should seek to have a significant impact outside the walls of the local sanctuary.


    Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.  Philippians 3:13-14


    Joy joined the First Baptist Family in 2007 as Music Minister and has been making a “joyful” noise ever since. She grew up in the ministry as a “PK” (Pastor’s Kid) and has served as VBS Director & Youth Director in both Louisiana and North Carolina. She is also full time Math teacher at Albany Middle school and is married to Kenny Lewis with two step sons, Kyle and Kade. Joy’s greatest desire is to “Serve the Lord with gladness” and to help others celebrate the Awesome God we serve, through their praise and worship.


    “Let the whole earth sing to the Lord! Each day proclaim the good news that He saves. Publish His glorious deeds among the nations. Tell everyone about the amazing things He does Great is the Lord! He is most worthy of praise! He is to be feared above all gods.”  1 Chronicles 16:23-25
