Pastor Al Fowler has lived in Northwest Arkansas since 1977. Al and Kim were married in 1979 and have two grown daughters, Lindsey Coffman and Laurie Chester. Al was called to the pastoral ministry shortly after accepting Christ as his Lord and Savior in 1979. Since then he has served at two churches in NWA. Before coming to FBC he served as a bi-vocational Youth Pastor at Sunnyside Baptist Church in Rogers. He has served at FBC Pea Ridge since 1991.
Pastor Al is passionate about shepherding Christ’s church, communicating the truth of God’s Word and encouraging God’s people to be the Church of our Lord Jesus Christ. He believes God’s Word should be communicated in a relevant manner that connects to where people live and challenges us to apply what we learn to our daily lives. Disciples who live changed lives and impact the world they live in are the goal, not simply church members. His life verse is Romans 12:1 1 Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy,to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God–this is your spiritual act of worship. Romans 12:1 (NIV)
