Dr. Roger McCarty


I was born and raised in Akron, Ohio,  After  graduating from

Springfield High School I went to Baptist Bible College of PA.  

While a student at BBC I met my wife, Beth. We were married

in the summer of 1974. After graduating from BBC in 1975

with my Bachelor’s degree, I went on to Baptist Bible

Seminary, earning my M. Div in 1978.


Following graduation we moved to Sunnyvale, CA where I

became the assistant pastor at Trinity Baptist Church. Three

years later we moved to Baker, MT to become the senior

pastor of First Baptist Church. In 1987 we moved to Byron, MI

to pastor the Byron Baptist Church. After five and a half years

we moved to Visalia, CA to serve at Faith Baptist Church. In April

1996 the Lord moved us to the First Baptist CommunityChurch of

Los Gatos.


The Lord has blessed Beth and me with five grown children; Christopher,

Michael, Shaun, Nicole, and Joshua. We have three “daughters-in-love,” as

Beth likes to call them, and, so far, seven grandchildren.

I was born in Des Moines, IA and graduated from Grandview

Park Baptist School. It was on the first day of Kindergarten

at Grandview that I met my future wife, Krisanna. Following

graduation both Krisanna and I attended Faith Baptist Bible

College. We graduated from Faith in 2011, where I received

my Bachelor’s degree in Biblical Studies. Upon graduation,

I immediately began attending Faith Theological Seminary,

earning my Master of Divinity in 2014.


Krisanna and I were married in December 2011. After getting

married, we began serving at Community Baptist Church in

Ankeny, IA as volunteer youth leaders. I led the youth group at

Community until we moved to First Baptist Community Church of

Los Gatos in November 2015 for my first vocational ministry.


The Lord has blessed us with our son Elijah and our daughter Shiloh!
