Tim Moffett : Pastor
Cell phone: 337-580-5256
How did Tim Moffett move from Panama City, FL to become the pastor of First Baptist Church of Eunice?
First, God clearly led Tim and Susan to this place. Second, Tim promised to cheer for LSU when they played the Gators!
Since July of 2007, Tim, Susan, Adam, and Ashley have been privileged to call Eunice and First Baptist Church home. It is Tim’s calling to help people discover the wonder of Christ’s saving work and for their faith to be an ever increasing passion of their daily lives. Tim loves to teach and preach, but his greatest ministry joy is to walk next to people on their faith journey.
Mike Fontenot : Youth Minister
Cell Phone: 337-580-2054
Mike Fontenot may have graduated high school in Texas and may have worked out of New York City for twelve years, but there is no doubt he is 100% Cajun.
Born in Ville Platte and raised in Mamou, Mike is equally at home in a deer stand or behind a steaming pot. He and his wife Jessica have two great kids, Jacob and Katie. Mike and Jessica both gave their lives to Christ at a church retreat focused on an Experiencing God study by Henry Blackaby in April of 2001.
Prior to coming to FBCE, Mike was the bivocational youth minister at First Baptist Church of Pine Prairie, LA.
Susan Moffett : Preschool and Children’s Director
Susan Moffett is the newest addition to the FBCE team. After nearly twenty years of volunteering in many different areas of ministry, Susan came on staff in the spring of 2013 as part time Children and Preschool Minister. It is her passion that children not only learn about God, but come to know Him personally.
Susan has homeschooled Adam (now a freshman of William Carey University) and Ashley (now in 10th grade) for most of the last decade. She also fills in occasionally at the campus bookstore at LSU Eunice.
David Harper : Worship Leader
David Harper has covered the greatest distance to be a part of FBCE. As a high school senior in Eagle River, Alaska, he earned a college scholarship to Louisiana College. (Interestingly, David says the coldest he has ever been was in Louisiana, not Alaska.) It was at LC that he met Arien, who would become his wife and his connection to our church.
David has previously served as Children’s Minister as FBCE and currently is our Lead Worshipper on Sunday mornings. David is a full time teacher at Central Middle School and working on his doctorate at UL Monroe. He and Arien have two great boys, George and John David.
Connie Beaugh : Worship Coordinator
Connie Beaugh was not born playing the piano… It just seems that way! In addition to her gifts as a musician, Connie is the staff member responsible for coordinating all our worship services and special worship events.
Connie graduated from Eunice High School and continued her studies at UL Lafayette. She plays a critical role in the Eunice Community Choir and Band and is an exceptional piano teacher. Connie is also a much sought after accompanist for weddings and funerals. Connie is wife to Terry, mom to Ashley, Anthony, and Arien, and “Mimi” to nine grandchildren.
