Thrift Baptist Church
Meet the Staff

  Gene Lathan     Nothing brings greater joy into my life and the life of my family, than to be the Pastor of such an exciting church.  God has blessed me with a wonderful wife (Elena) who offers great support toward kingdom ministry.  He has also blessed us both with four wonderful children, two girls and two boys.  They're adults now and all four have each given their life to Christ.  We now have three grandchildren and we thank the Lord every day for His blessings toward us.  This past summer, I had the great pleasure of Baptizing our oldest grandson (Austin).  Thrift Baptist Church is a very special place, and I'm excited that my entire family calls "Thrift” home.  I've been pastor here since June 1, 1997 and pray that the Lord will leave me here forever.  And by the way, we love visitors. If you're looking for a church family, look no further, Thrift is here for you.

  Charles Williams   God sent me to Thrift Baptist Church years ago.  He used the scripture Joshua 1:9 which says "Remember that I command you to be strong and brave. Don't be afraid, because the Lord God will be with you everywhere you go."  He has been with me and blessed me ever since I came to Thrift.  I have a wonderful wife named Peggy, 3 sons and 1 daughter.  We also have 11 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild.   We would love to have you come and worship with us and get the "Thrift excitement." We have a little of both contemporary and traditional in our worship service so that everyone can enjoy.
