Pastor Dustin Willey, Senior Pastor

Born in Silver City, NM and moved to Safford when he was 7 years old, pastor Dustin  grew up in the Gila valley. He graduated from Safford High School in 1995 and attended Eastern Arizona College. He finally settled into working in the family business which was construction. In the summer of 2000, he married his wife Jennifer “Maltos” Willey and looked forward to starting a family. After a couple of years and many doctor visits they were told that they could not have kids. So they proceeded to have a family through adoption. They ended up adopting 6 kids and after 12 years they got pregnant and had a girl and later a boy for a total of 8 kids 6 girls and 2 boys. In January 2012 he left the construction industry and became the pastor of First Southern Baptist Church. Pastor Dustin and his wife are very family oriented and they want to see the power of God working in the lives of the people.
