Michael Sims - Family Pastor
Pastor Michael Sims serves as the Family Pastor here at First Baptist. Michael married his high school sweetheart, Chrissy, in 2002. They currently have one beautiful daughter, Kierra. Michael grew up in West Columbia and has served in ministry since his time at Airport High School on a volunteer basis. Upon graduating from Airport in 2000 he initially pursued football under Coach Lou Holtz at the University of South Carolina before realizing God's calling on his life was a bit different than his plan. After completing one year at USC, Michael transferred to Columbia International University to pursue degrees in Bible and Family and Church Education. Michael served in student and family ministry at another Lexington area church for ten and a half years before joining the staff team here.
When not engaged in the various ministries and activities at the church Michael coaches softball, enjoys Gamecock sports, and enjoys being with his family.
