Senior Pastor

Andy Bowman

I am Andy Bowman, the Senior Pastor here at FBC Idabel.  My wife, Renie, and I moved to this beautiful community the first week of January, 2013 from Keys, Oklahoma, where we haved lived the past eighteen years. We have two grown sons, two beautiful daughters-in-law, and five wonderful grandchildren.

After my family, being a pastor in the area where we live is a calling upon my life that I place in the highest priority. I thoroughly enjoy being involved in the lives of my church members, and seeking to share the love of God to those who do not know Him.

I have my Doctorate of Ministry in Christian Counseling from Covington Theological Seminary located in Rossville, Georgia, while Renie holds a Masters Degree in Clinical Christian Counseling from Jacksonville Theological Seminary, Jacksonville, Florida.

I enjoy gardening in my back yard,and an occasional round of golf ( yes I know, that does mean that I am not very good at the game.) In past years, I also have been known to sing in a Southern Gospel Quartet with Renie and a dear friend, Greg Jones.  (Yes, I know, that also may mean that I am not very good at that hobby either!)

Youth Pastor

Nathan Brumley

Hello! I am Nathan Brumley and I serve as Student Minister to FBC Idabel. I am married to my best friend Brooke and we have two wonderful children Noah and Lexi. My wife and I are originally from Southwest Oklahoma, but God has taken us all around this great state.
I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior July 9, 1997 at Falls Creek. One year later at Falls Creek I surrendered to the ministry. Ever since then, God has surrounded me with great mentors in ministry and around people to serve and share the love of Jesus Christ with. I want nothing more than to see people come to know Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior.
As a side note, I enjoy watching and playing sports. I love playing the drums and listening to music. I enjoy video games and I even enjoy attempting to play golf.

Children's Director

Jana Hughes

Send Email

Hello! My name is Jana Hughes, and I am the Children’s Ministry Director here at FBC Idabel.  I have been married to my husband Andy for 20 years and we have 3 children and 3 grandchildren. Before coming to work at First Baptist I was the owner/operator of a day care in my home for 18 years.

I was saved 9 years ago during a revival here at First Baptist. Since that time I have had a heart to serve and I have had the opportunity to serve on many committees, as Sunday school teacher and as VBS Director. 

Now as I serve as the Children’s Ministry Director, it is my desire to see the children grow and learn about Jesus and accept him as their Lord and Savior.

Deuteronomy 6:5-7  Love the Lord God with all your heart and with all your soul and all your strength.  These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children.  Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.
