Senior Pastor

My life Story

I was born and raised in Gadsden, AL until the age of 13 when my family relocated to Hartselle, AL. After years of being raised in the church I decided to take my own path that lead to much heart break and regret. At 25 years of age I found myself at the end of myself as an alcoholic and drug addict. In April of 1995 I cried out the Jesus Christ and asked to be saved. In that moment a miracle occurred and not only was I saved but was also delivered from the addictions that had scared my life.
In 1996 I became a member of Decatur Baptist Church where I faithfully attended and grew in the ministry. In September of 2000 I married the love of my life Cyndi after meeting her in the singles ministry of the church. in 2005 I was called on staff at Decatur Baptist where I served for seven years. In 2010 Cyndi and I were blessed with our son Ryder. In 2011 I became the pastor of Columbia Baptist Church in Columbia, Kentucky where I served for two years. In 2013 we left Kentucky and moved to Moulton, Alabama to become the pastor of Pleasant Grove Baptist Church.

Hope for Pleasant Grove

My desire for PGBC is for every member to find God’s plan for their life and how that fits into the ministries of PGBC. We do this by equipping each member to do the work of ministry which is evangelism and discipleship. When we all do that together we will reach our community and more of the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Nick Williams

Student Pastor

My life Story

I was born and reared in Mesquite, Texas, a suburb of Dallas. My parents began attending church when I was nine and soon became involved in the bus ministry. On July 11, 1994 when I was fourteen years old, I came to a saving knowledge of Christ. I immediately began to preach His gospel and joined our local nursing home ministry team.

I knew even before I was saved that I was going to be a Student Pastor. In what other position can a person eat pizza every week and play games every weekend? My Youth Pastor began training me and God has allowed me to serve Him in many aspects. I have served on mission trips to The Philippines, Ghana, and Costa Rica, and have served as a Student Pastor, Children’s Pastor, Senior’s Pastor, Worship Pastor, and Church Janitor. But I am called to work with teenagers.

At Pleasant Grove I strive to ensure that our students have the opportunity to hear God’s word with every activity that we do. Everything is on purpose. We are seeing much spiritual growth in our Student Ministry and continue to grow in our ability and endeavors to reach others for Christ.

After coming to Christ, the day I met my wife was the greatest day ofmy life. Robyn and were married on September 14, 2002. We had our first son, Gavin, nine months and two weeks later. He was followed by Austin and Nathan. Then God blessed s with our two princesses, Madison and Peyton.

God called us to Pleasant Grove in the early spring of 2019. On March 29, 2019 we began our ministry here. We love the city Of Moulton and Pleasant Grove Baptist Church and can’t wait to see what all the Lord has in store for the future.

Hope for Pleasant Grove

It is my sincere hope and desire to see continued spiritual growth among our students as well as well as adults. It is my prayer that God will allow me to lead our students in making God the priority in their lives as they leam to approach life with a Biblical world view and maintain an eternal perspective.

Harriet Inman

Children’s Director

My life Story

I was born and raised in Mount Hope, AL. and grew up in Mount Hope Baptist Church. At the age of 15 I was saved at youth camp. Soon after being saved, God impressed on me to begin a community children’s choir and I led this choir for several years. In 1989, Mount Hope Baptist called me as Music Director for the adult choir. I served there for 11 more years. In January of 2000 our family became part of the Pleasant Grove family. Soon after coming to Pleasant Grove, I volunteered as the toddler choir director and later began working with the 1st-6th grade choir. After serving as a volunteer for a couple of years, Pleasant Grove called me as their Children’s Ministry Director. I have faithfully served in this ministry for many years. I earned my elementary education BS degree from Athens State University and Masters from the University of West Alabama. I also earned a master’s degree in educational administration from the University of North Alabama. These degrees have been truly beneficial for my ministry here. I have been employed with Lawrence County Schools for the last 24 years where I currently work as Reading Specialist at Mount Hope School.

Hope for Pleasant Grove

It is my prayer that through teaching God’s word to our children and showing them the love of Jesus that they will be saved at a young age and we as children’s ministry leaders will continue to disciple them as they grow in Christ.

Jim Fiscus

Worship Pastor

My life Story

I was born December 3, 1973 in New Castle, Indiana. At the age of three my family moved to Northwest Alabama where I was raised. My dad was a preacher and we were very involved in church. Over the years I had many opportunities to trust Christ but, even though I loved church, I did not fully trust Him until April 19, 1993. In a friend’s living room I knelt down and gave my life to Christ. Wow, what a difference!
Shortly after trusting Christ I surrendered to ministry.
Over the years that ministry has included serving at a number of different churches in various roles. Much of that time has been as Senior Pastor; but I have also enjoyed working with youth, children, senior adults and, of course, music.
I have been very involved in the Muscle Shoals Baptist Association where I serve as moderator.
I am the Men’s Ministry Director for the association and I serve on the Mission and VBS Committees. Each summer I help lead an association mission trip of around 75 people. I also serve as the immediate past president of the pastor’s fellowship.Having a personal relationship with the King of Kings is the greatest thing to ever happen to me. A close second is the day I met my wife, Christy. After talking and dating for some time, we married on August 24, 1996. We have 5 children, David, Steven, Nathan, Courtney, and Sarah and several grandchildren.
In the spring of 2017 I felt God leading our family to Pleasant Grove Baptist Church to work with the Music Ministry. I began as the Worship Pastor in June. We are excited to be here. God has blessed us so richly to call the PGBC church family our home.

Hope for Pleasant Grove

It is my prayer and desire to see God honored through being the center of our lives and worship. I hope to lead His people, by example, as they worship Him for who He truly is and desire to make Him the Lord of their lives.
