Choe Sergent - Senior Pastor


Being part of a great church is one of the most wonderful blessings there is to enjoy. I am very thankful to have the opportunity to lead a great church like Junction City First Baptist that is filled with amazing people. I love seeing our church grow numerically and spiritually as we engage our community and world. Our ultimate goal is produce disciples that make disciples, fulfill the Great Commission, and give glory to God. Why? Because everybody needs Jesus. 

Amanda and myself have three children, Mariela, Solomon, and Joel. Amanda is a homemaker and seeking a degree in early childhood education. I have received a Bachelors Degree in Biblical Studies from Grand Canyon University and a Master of Theology and a Master of Management and Leadership from Campbellsville University. I am currently seeking a Doctorate in Management. I also enjoy teaching theology and business at Campbellsville University as an Adjunct Professor. 

Amanda and I love to travel and discover hidden diners and dives. We also enjoy history and exploring antique artifacts.
