Pastor Atwood and Family

In November 2006, Pastor Atwood was called to be the pastor of Heritage Baptist Church in Corpus Christi, Texas. They began meeting in a small one-bedroom house, and in 2014, they moved to a new 5-acre site to allow continued growth and expansion. He is married to Aimee, and they have three boys—Will (13), Connor (10), Jack (8).

Pastor Cooper and Family

For over a decade, Pastor Cooper has traveled the world as an evangelist, holding revival meetings and preaching in Bible conferences. Presently, he has been pastoring the New Testament Baptist Church in Butler, Pennsylvania. He is married to Desarae, and they have one son, Lincoln (2).

Pastor Evertson and Family

In June 2000, after graduating from Golden State Baptist College, the Lord directed John Evertson to be the pastor of West Valley Baptist Church. John and Kara have been married for over 20 years and enjoy serving the Lord with their four children—Josiah (19), Jeremiah (17), Joy (14), and Joshua (12). They enjoy sharing the Gospel with the lost, encouraging, and equipping God’s people and spending family time together. Pastor Evertson has also taught weekly at GSBC since 2004.

Pastor & Mrs. Trieber, the staff, church members, and college students are very excited about these incredible additions to our team. Please be in prayer for these wonderful families during this time of transition.
