Pastor Randy Dignan
Randy Dignan was voted in as pastor of Bible Baptist Church in May ’98 at the young age of 22. He was saved after he repented and put his faith in Jesus Christ as Saviour in July ’94. He was called to preach and to pastor shortly thereafter. He grew up in a home with Deaf parents and a Deaf sister. He also lived in nine states growing up located in the Midwest and both coasts. He has a good feel for the American people as a whole and has a burden to reach America with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. A fiery preacher with a tear in his eye believes in being short and sweet and to the point in this busy day and age. He has a genuine love for the people of Bible Baptist Church from the babies to the seniors and he has a special place in his heart for teenagers, young couples and the Deaf people of our area. Our pastor believes there is no greater joy than to be a Christian, a citizen of the United States of America, and a family man. He believes all of these are best attained when you practice a balanced approach to the Christian life putting God first and emphasizing the home. He loves people and would love to be your pastor. Most of all he is driven by a passion and a love for His precious Saviour Jesus Christ realizing that without Christ he is nothing. The church has grown in a miraculous way and we invite you to come and be a part of our loving church family!
Assistant Pastor Jake Carlisle
Jake Carlisle is no stranger here at Bible Baptist Church because he and his family have been going to church here since he was 8 years old. He was saved as a teenager and believed with his whole heart that God called him to preach as a teenager. God also placed on his heart that he was to work with the young people at Bible Baptist. Jake went to Bible college, interned at Franklin Road Baptist Church in Murfreesboro, TN, and worked at Triple S Christian Ranch in Rosebud, Arkansas for many summers. He met his beautiful wife while in college. After a long distance courtship, they were married and moved back to Jefferson City, MO to be in the ministry at Bible Baptist Church in April of 2013. They now have a beautiful 16 month old daughter, Karlee Joy, who is a complete joy in their lives. He currently serves as the youth pastor and assistant pastor. He is very passionate about reaching this next generation and willing to give his all to make a difference. He is often known for quoting, "This is my life. It's what I do." All of this has been made possible by Christ and His love, mercy, and grace. Jake's other mission is to let everyone know this truth about Christ through many of the outreach endeavors of Bible Baptist Church.
