Dr. David P. Perdue
Upon graduation from Baptist Bible College of Springfield, MO, Pastor Perdue went directly to join the ministry of Bethlehem Baptist Church of Fairfax, VA. During his 30 years there, he was involved in nearly every aspect of ministry. He served (at various times) as Associate Pastor, Music Minister, Youth Director, Christian School Administrator, Business Manager, Sunday School Director, Visitation Director, Church Administrator, “Jolly 6o’s” Director and adult Bible teacher. His broad range of experience well equips him for the varied ministries of First Baptist Church. He accepted the pastorate of First Baptist Church in March of 1999.
As a 1978 graduate of Baptist Bible College, Mrs. Johnson became involved in church ministries immediately. Serving as church secretary, Sunday School teacher, and Pastor’s wife, she added “homeschooling” to her activities. Her love for children and education led her into Christian Education. She has served at Milford Christian School for over twenty years in various roles, as a Teacher, Vice Principal, and Principal. All four of her children are graduates of MCS. She says, “I am as excited about Christian Education today as I was when I started teaching at MCS twenty years ago.”
As a graduate of Milford Christian School, Mrs. Padilla has been “connected” to this ministry for many years. Her educational background and Missionary work have prepared her well to serve in this key position.
Mrs. Perdue has been a helper to Pastor Perdue as his wife and ministry partner for forty-nine years. She is the mother of their four children and grandmother of nine. She joyfully serves as the office Receptionist.
Coming from a strong Christian background, Mrs. Hooker earned an Associate Degree in Elementary Education. She is now fulfilling her desire to use her background, education, and love for children for God’s glory in the Christian school environment.
After teaching her four children through high school, Mrs. Natal settled into her favorite age-level teaching kindergarten students. Her background enables her to add in some Spanish as time allows.
