Pastors & Staff

Barry E. Philbeck

Pastor

Pastor Barry Philbeck has twenty-four years of pastoral experience, all of which have been at Love Valley Baptist Church. He has a Bachelors degree in Biblical Studies.
Under Pastor Philbeck’s leadership, God has grown Love Valley Baptist Church. The Church has experienced growth each year in all phases of church life. The Sunday School attendance averaged thirty-five when he first came to Love Valley Baptist Church and in just three months the attendance grew to over one hundred. The church presently averages over five hundred in Sunday School. This would not have been possible had it not been for God’s grace.

During these twenty-four years the church has experienced a warm and caring fellowship among the congregation due to Pastor Philbeck’s love of God and the church family as well as his compassionate leadership.

Michael Lindsay

Assistant Pastor

Raised in a Baptist home, where his Father was a Deacon and Mother a Sunday School Teacher, Michael was taught at an early age the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Having made a profession of faith on two separate occasions, Michael thought “everything is alright between me and God”. A religious, but lost, teenager, God began to deal with him about salvation after hearing a young lady testify, “I had done everything a person could do in the church and then I realized I was lost”. God used that testimony to convict Michael with Holy Ghost conviction. On January 23, 2001, after five solid days of conviction, Michael began to ask questions to his brother-in-law concerning assurance of salvation. It was then that Michael got honest with God and himself and admitted that he was a lost sinner on the road to hell. His brother-in-law then took the scriptures and showed him what to do to be born again, and Michael asked God to forgive him for being a sinner and to save him. After serving the Lord for just a little over nine months, God began to deal with Michael concerning the call to preach. Early on the morning of November 6, 2001, Michael submitted to the will of God to Preach the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. He joined the Love Valley Baptist Church in April of 2002, and became a full time staff member in August of 2009.
Michael and his wife, the former Miss Brittany Blalock, were married on June 25, 2005, and have two handsome young men, Ethan and Micah, and two beautiful little girls, Faith and Charity.  
As a family, the Lindsay's happily serve the Lord together at Love Valley Baptist Church.
