Pastor: Jordan Tew 

     Hello there! My name is Jordan Tew (pronounced "2"), and I am the pastor of Eighth Street Baptist Church. I grew up in the Piney Woods of east Texas and have a love for the simple blessings in life. I am just a regular guy God has called into His service. I am a family man and a big fan of sports and good food. I take the calling of pastor very seriously and understand the command to feed God's people through the preaching and teaching of the Word and to treat them with the love of God.  
I hope that I can be a source of encouragement to you. If you have any questions or need help with anything, please feel free to e-mail me directly at I will reply promptly.

Jordan is a graduate of Jacksonville College, and holds both a Bachelor's and Master's degree from BMA Theological Seminary. 

Minister of Music: Matt Woods

     My name is Matt and I am the Minister of Music at Eighth Street Baptist Church. I grew up here and have been blessed to have been called by God to minister to His church through music. I am also a deacon and love to serve God by serving others. I believe in singing hymns as well as some more modern songs, as long as they are God-centered and line up with the Bible. 

Children's Ministry Leaders: Trent and Gabriella McCormick

     We both Love God, are recently married, and we love being a part of the Eighth Street Baptist Church family.
Children's ministry is important to us, because we feel God is calling us to serve His church through ministering to children. We feel there are a lot of children who do not know who God is, and we want to create a place where kids can come and learn the Truth about our Lord and Savior. We want to build a good foundation in who God is for them. We love children and, to be honest, we are a couple of kids at heart who love God and want to serve Him.
