Church Staff


Hello and thanks for your interest in the ministry of Faith Baptist Church. My wife Hannah and I both had the privilege of growing up in preachers' homes. By our teenage years we had accepted Christ as our Savior and had surrendered to His will for our life. After I received my BA at Oklahoma Baptist College and my MA at Golden State Baptist College, I took the position of Assistant Pastor at my home church in Durango, CO. In 2014 we followed the Lord's calling to Faith Baptist Church, and it is here that we desire to see God work. Through this ministry myself, my wife, and our 5 kids hope you will join us in our desire to glorify God.

Assistant Pastor

Clay Carlson and his wife Abigail happily serve at Faith Baptist Church in the teen ministry, bus ministry, and the Christian school. They count it an honor to serve the Lord in the needy city of Carlsbad, NM.

Bro. Carlson surrendered to the call of God on his life to be a preacher in 2011. He graduated from Bible college in 2014. 

After college, Bro. and Mrs. Carlson were married and have been blessed with two daughters, Evelynn & Elaina.
