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.
