our principal

James Barnhill came to WCBC through our military ministry as a young Marine. He met and married his wife, Elizabeth, here in 2011. James felt the Lord would have him help in the work of the ministry. With that in mind, he left the Marine corp, went to college, and became our school's new principal in 2017.


our military ministry leader

Scott Dutton also came to our church through the military ministry. He left the Marine corp to stay at WCBC. He met and married his wife, Rachael, here in 1998. Scott has been a big part of our military ministry from the time he arrived here. When he became the ministry leader, he continued to pour his time, prayer, and love into our young military personnel.


our youth and music director

Caleb Smith and his wife Cassandra graduated from Fairhaven Baptist College, were married, and came to WCBC in 2014. Caleb feels the Lord has called him into full time service in the ministry. Currently he is serving in all music matters in the church, as well as with our teens.
