Jay Richards- Senior Pastor

I enjoyed youth ministry and associate pastor work for 17 years and have pastored at New Testament since September of 2009. I am so delighted to be able to shepherd the sweetest church on the planet and to experience the Lord moving and growing His church. I graduated from Liberty University and did some study in Israel. I look forward to what the Lord has in store for NTBC. My family and I are excited to serve the Lord and look forward with great anticipation to what the Lord will continue to accomplish. We would love for you to join us in the journey of serving and following Christ to reach this world for Christ.
