    Jim Schettler

    Pastor Jim Schettler joined the family of First Baptist Church in January 2007. Jim grew up in Michigan but spent the last thirty-one years in Pensacola Florida. After graduating from Pensacola Christian College, he became the youth pastor for the Campus Church. After seven years of Bible teaching and youth pastoring, he served for eighteen years as the senior pastor for Campus Church, being heard and seen on Rejoice Radio and Rejoice in the Lord television broadcasts. He and his wife Marilee have been married for twenty-six years and have three sons, Ben, Luke, and Drew. Pastor Schettler's excitement for the Lord and heart's cry to bring the lost to a saving faith in Jesus Christ permeates his preaching, teaching, and outreach.
