Chris McGowan



Pastor Chris McGowan has been a teacher in the New Franklin School District since 2001 teaching social studies and agricultural education. His wife, Stacy, has been teaching elementary classes at New Franklin since 2004. They have three children: Brooke, Nolan, and Duncan.

Pastor Chris has been a substitute preacher at a number of churches over the past few years and has previously served as a leader of a high school youth group. Most recently he spent time as a deacon and part time preacher in Boonesboro, MO. Chris and Stacy (who has been very involved as a Sunday School teacher) have recently felt God calling them to lead a church. FBC has already made the McGowans feel very welcomed and they feel so blessed to have this opportunity at a church that so clearly stresses love, prayer, and the Bible.

The McGowan family is excited to lead the New Franklin First Baptist Church as we try our best to love others, pray for others, and preach the word of God in this community.
