Dr. Roger Mccarty

Head Pastor

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. 

Associate/Youth Pastor

Daniel sternquist

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 four children: Elijah, Shiloh, Judah, and Moriah.
We enjoy serving the Lord as a family!
