Fulfilling a desire and passion to work full-time in God’s house, Pastor Ahmad Muqtasid moved his family from DC to Little Rock in May of 2014 to serve as Associate Pastor. Having worked with youth in secular arenas, Pastor Ahmad received the revelation that all his efforts were in vain if he didn’t lead youth to Christ. With a love for expository preaching and teaching, his desire is to help youth develop a Christian worldview through the teaching of sound doctrine. Pastor Ahmad holds a Master's of Arts in Pastoral Counselling and is currently pursuing a Doctorate of Ministry. In January 2018, he was appointed as Discipleship Pastor. He currently gives leadership to our Christian Education ministries as he desires to see the body of Christ established in God’s Word and to live lives that God would be pleased with.
As head of the Children’s Department, Pastor Jarvis Carrigan has a mission: To nurture children into a loving, serving relationship with God. Having served at Second Baptist for 10 years, he encourages the little ones at every encounter with I Timothy 4:12 - Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity. Believing God for one saved all saved, through the children, Pastor Carrigan’s goal is salvation for the entire family.
