Caleb Lind

Senior Pastor

Caleb and his wife Kayla have been married since 2006 and have two sons and a little girl:  Hudson, his little brother Warner and sister Eden. As a family they love to be active, play games, eat great food and spend time with people.  Caleb has been in ministry since 2005 and has served the Kingdom of God in various ways throughout that time.  He and Kayla both completed Bachelors Degrees at Friends University, KS where they were involved in athletics and music. After college, they moved to Texas where Caleb completed a Masters of Divinity at Baylor University.  From Texas, they moved to the Kansas City metro area and served  at a great, little church for 5 years.  They joined the ministry  at FBC Norfolk in October 2015 and have been greatly blessed and encouraged during their time here.  Their hope for this church family is that they will be a bright light for God’s Kingdom and allow the Gospel to flow out of their  lives, bringing healing and hope to our community and our world.  May it be so!

Connection Pastor

Pastor Brian has been serving in churches since 2005. He has served in various roles like Youth, worship, young adults, discipleship pastor and he now serves with us as our Connection Pastor at FBC. In the Photo, you will see Shari and their son Liam. They are originally from the Sioux City area and are excited to see what God has in store for them here at FBC. Brian and Shari love to work with their hands while being creative, so during their free time you will usually find them remodeling something in their home or playing board games. Their desire for FBC is to see the church continue to grow in their trust of Jesus Christ in every situation so that God can be glorified and experienced in the Norfolk community.

Jon

Jonathan Montalvo

Worship Leader

First Baptist is so blessed to have Jonathan on our team. Many members of his family have been integral members of the FBC church family and the Latino Ministry for many years. In February 2018, Jonathan joined us in an official capacity to lead our worship through music. Jonathan has an Associates Degree in Music, training in leading worship from Marcos Witt and is currently pursuing an additional Associates in Studio Recording. While Jonathan brings an incredible amount of musical talent and energy into our times of corporate worship, it pales in comparison to the heart that he has to live for and lift up the name of Jesus.
