Meet Our Pastor

Hello my name is Wes Rigdon and I have pastored the Lester Baptist Church since November 2005. My wife’s name is Julie and we have three lovely daughters Brook, Morgan, and Erika. I was saved as a fifteen year old boy and I surrendered my life to the ministry in 1999 while attending Eagledale Baptist Church in Indianapolis, IN. I attended Crown College of the Bible in Powell, TN. Crown College is a ministry of the Temple Baptist Church with Dr. Clarence Sexton as their pastor. Dr. Sexton has been a great encouragement to me and my family and I thank him much for his influence on my life.  God has laid upon my heart the desire to strengthen that which remains. When I finished Bible College I began to pray for the Lord’s leadership in my life as to where God would have me serve as pastor. God allowed my path cross with the Lester Baptist Church and they extended an invitation to candidate as pastor. The Church called me to be their pastor and I arrived in West Virginia November 2, 2005. We thank the Lord for all that He has done to make this possible and I know without a shadow of a doubt that this is where God would have us serve Him.

If you are ever in our area and are looking for a church to attend, please feel free to join us. We would love to meet you and your family!
