Meet our staff
Jeff Barros Senior Pastor
Born and reared in Woodward, Oklahoma, First Baptist is my home church. In 2003, I graduated from WHS and headed off to Oklahoma Baptist University to pursue my calling into the ministry.
My junior year, while taking Baptist History, it was my goal to find the cutest, smartest study partner I could and that is where I met my wife. Ashley and I were married on July 11, 2008, in MIssouri City, Texas, and shortly moved to Colorado where I attended and graduated with my MDiv from Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary.
I currently serve in the Air National Guard as a Chaplain and it is such a privilege to serve both God and country. I am honored to wear the uniform and serve alongside the men and women of our armed forces. I praise God daily that He allows me to serve His Kingdom and His Church along side the greatest people in Northwest Oklahoma.
Music is one way we express our heart felt thanks to God for all the undeserved things He has graciously done for us. If He did nothing else we could spend eternity praising Him and it wouldn’t be enough. I was raised in a Christian home and gave my life to Christ at the age of 17. I attended Northwestern Oklahoma State University and graduated with a Bachelors degree in Music Education. I also met the love of my life, Dawn, at college. She is a gift from God and she completes me. We moved to Woodward in 1988 where we both taught school. I loved teaching, but felt God had other plans for my life. After much prayer and soul searching I began my journey in the music ministry. I have been minister of music since 1992. 8 years bi-vocationally and full time for the past 14 years at FBC, Woodward. God has been so good to me! He’s given me a loving marriage, two beautiful daughter with great son-in-laws, the prettiest and smartest granddaughter, a wonderful extended family and fantastic friends. I’m grateful for His continued mercy and grace. It’s my desire to live for the King!
Hi! I’m Jonathan and I’m the Uth Minister here at FBC Woodward. I love my wife, sports, and the satisfaction of freshly clipped fingernails. Homemade salsa is one of my favorite beverages, and I can eat good Chinese food seven days a week. I am also passionate about seeing students come to know Jesus, grow in their faith, and make disciples. We have a lot of fun in Uth with games, events, movie nights, and chill time, but most importantly we teach and learn the Bible. And based on that knowledge of, and life by the Bible we go on mission trips and do service projects.
Hi! A few things you should know about me. I’m a big goofball and still very much a child at heart. I love to laugh, watch movies, play basketball, and wear crazy socks! Working with children allows me to do all of these things I enjoy, so it is safe to say, I love my job!
At First Baptist Church Woodward, we love Children’s Ministry! Just as Jesus says in Matthew 19:14 “let the little children come to me,” we take the same approach in loving your kids. We are so very excited for the opportunity you give us to minister to your children. We keep your kiddos active and excited to participate in Children’s Ministry, whether its summer activities or Friday Fun or AWANA during the school year.
