Dallas Smith has been serving as senior pastor of First Baptist Church in Fairlea since November 2014. With the exception of a few childhood years in southern California, Dallas was raised in Kanawha County and proudly claims West Virginia as his home state. His family relocated to Virginia during his high school years, and it was soon thereafter that he met Donna. They married in 1982, and have been serving the Lord together for more than thirty-five years. God has also blessed them with two children and three grandchildren. Amanda and her husband are IMB Missionaries serving overseas, while Timothy and his wife are actively serving at a church in Virginia.
Dr. Smith possesses a B.A. in Pastoral Theology, a Master’s in Biblical Studies, and a Doctorate of Ministry. Visitors to First Baptist will surely recognize Dr. Smith’s passion for reaching the lost, a love for God’s Holy Word, the importance of unity in being a purpose-driven New Testament church, and an unparalleled enthusiasm for missions and ministry.
