Hi, Dykes Creek Baptist! My name is Sam Smith. My wife, Kimm, and I have been married 32 years. We love spending time with our family who reside in Tennessee. We have two children and a bonus daughter: MacKenzie, daughter; Tyler, son; Hillary, daughter-in-law. Kimm and I are also grandparents to two beautiful granddaughters,Tatum and Teagan. We are avid campers and enjoy traveling, and I love to hunt and fish.
My educational background includes a bachelor's degree from Tennessee Wesleyan College in the field of education. Additionally, I graduated from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary with a master’s of divinity degree. I have held various ministry positions including youth minister, church planter, pastor and campus pastor, as well as serving in numerous volunteer roles within the local church. My passion is seeing people say “Yes” to Jesus.
I am excited about the opportunity to serve Dykes Creek as your Transitional Pastor. I look forward to people saying “Yes” to Jesus at DCBC.
