We are honored to introduce you to our beloved Senior Pastor, Brother Chris Rigby, who has been an integral part of our First Baptist Church Alamo family since June 2001. Known for his deep dedication to the Gospel Ministry, Pastor Chris's journey has been filled with service and a genuine commitment to spreading God's message. Let's take a moment to learn more about Pastor Chris and his incredible family.
Ordained by First Baptist Church Jackson, TN, Pastor Chris has ministered in various churches across Tennessee and Kentucky since accepting his Gospel Ministry call in 1988. Along his ministry path, he acquired extensive knowledge and qualifications. He attended Union University in Jackson, TN, Southern Seminary in Louisville, KY, and Knox Seminary in Fort Lauderdale, FL, earning a BS in Marketing & Management and a Master's in Biblical Studies.
As our Senior Pastor, Pastor Chris brings great wisdom, compassion, and a deep love for God's Word to his role. Through his powerful sermons and leadership, he inspires us to grow in our faith, to love one another, and to share God's love beyond the walls of our church. His dedication to serving our congregation and community is truly inspiring.
Behind every great man stands an exceptional woman; in Pastor Chris's case, that would be his loving wife, Pamela Vincent Rigby. Together, they form a strong partnership, supporting and uplifting one another in their shared ministry. Pamela's presence and support enrich the lives of our church family.
Pastor Chris and Pamela are blessed with two children and a son-in-law. Their son, Will Rigby, and their daughter, Kailey Thigpen, are constant sources of joy and pride. Kailey Thigpen is married to Bowen Thigpen, who has lovingly become a cherished member of their family.
As grandparents, Pastor Chris and Pamela have the privilege of adoring their granddaughter, Mae Bradford Thigpen, and recently welcomed a new grandson, Bennett Bowen Thigpen. These little ones bring immense joy and laughter to their lives.
We are incredibly grateful to have Pastor Chris as our spiritual leader and guide. He leads us with a humble heart, seeking to build a thriving community where God's love is experienced and shared. His dedication to faithfully preaching God's Word, nurturing our spiritual growth, and shepherding us toward a deeper relationship with Christ is invaluable.
As we journey together as a church family, let us extend our heartfelt gratitude and prayers to Pastor Chris, Pamela, and their entire family. May God bless them abundantly as they serve and minister to His people.
Please join us in celebrating Pastor Chris Rigby's faithful leadership, and let us pray for him and his family, asking God to grant them continued wisdom, strength, and joy as they serve our church community and impact lives for the glory of God.
