  • jwes crockett, senior pastor

    August 2019 was the beginning of a new adventure for the Crockett family. Full-time gospel ministry since 2005, JWes has served on several church staffs and been a part of family ministries until recently joining Lansing First Southern Baptist Church as Senior Pastor.  JWes also serves in leadership in the Kansas City Kansas Baptist Association.  Married to Rebecca since August 1999, children Zaccheus (2001) and Grace (2004) complete this crazy-fun-loving family!

    JWes’ personality and enthusiasm show up weekly in the messages preached as well as personal conversations. Sometimes he forgets your name but strives to learn it! Ask him about Spiders…just ask…his favorite colors are orange and blue and enjoys teaching golf to beginners…FOUR!

    Loving God and loving people is how we pursue. Rebecca brings a magnetic voice to the air waves and can be found on public radio, podcast, and various social media outlets. Together with a close friend, the Crockett’s host a monthly podcast titled, “Shock Therapy Live.” Reaching families locally and globally with the gospel of Christ is a passion JWes and Rebecca seek to cultivate through the courageous and humble followers of Jesus at LFSBC.

    Josh & Alison Bounds love to express their relationship with Christ, through acts of worship and creativity. They first called LFSBC home during the formative years of their relationship and were married while in attendance. Together they have led worship and youth ministries at a local church in Kansas City, MO. The Bounds are very excited to be a part and serve the LFSBC family again while Josh joins the Staff as Worship Ministry Director.

    As high school sweethearts they married in 2014  They have enjoyed the journey of growing up and becoming adults together alongside their dog Maggie and cat, Kit-Cat. Josh enlisted in the Missouri Air Force National Guard in 2014 and continues to serve as a C-130 Crew Chief, while performing the same profession as a federal technician. Alison employs her compassion and desire to help people as a licensed Physical Therapist Assistant.

    Josh has been a part of music ministry in every church he's been involved in. When he's not playing guitar he loves to fish and hike- or just be outside. Alison likes to help her diverse collection of plant life grow, as well as project her artistic talents onto canvas through a variety of mediums.

    Most importantly though, they have a deep love for Christ. Josh is passionate about worship and loves to facilitate and lead others in lifting their thanks and praise to the Lord. With inspiration and support from Alison, he is grateful for the opportunity to do just that alongside an incredible team of musicians at LFSBC.
