Meet Our Staff

Pastoral Transition Statement
At First Baptist Church we are in a state of pastoral transition as we wait upon our Lord and Savior to call a new senior pastor to lead his flock.  We will have a candidate weekend with Pastor Jason Owens coming to share his story, learn our story and to discern if a call to lead our church is in God’s will.  Please plan to join us on Sunday, August 11, to hear Pastor Owens.


Abraham Montalvo (Senior)
Latino Missionary Pastor
Pastor Abraham and his wife Susanna have been leading the Latino Ministry at FBC since 2010.  Pastor Montalvo brings a wealth of experience as he has served as a Pastor in a variety of churches for much of his life.  Originally from Veracruz, Mexico, Pastor Abraham has a heart for all Spanish speaking people in the NE Nebraska area.  Several members of the Montalvo family are very involved in both the Spanish and English speaking portions of our congregation and we are blessed to have them as a part of our family!

Ashlee Novatny

Nursery Care Provider

Ashlee has been caring for our kiddos at FBC since 2019.  She holds an Associates Degree in Early Childhood Ed from Northeast Community College and works full time during the week with Norfolk Public Schools Little Panthers Pre-School.  We are blessed to have her care for our young kiddos!


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, and Media Arts and has worked with Marcos Witt to learn worship arts. 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.
