Floyd and Krista Yoder

On June 16, 2013, my family and I moved to Fort Walton Beach from First Baptist Church Versailles, IL. where I was the youth director for 9 years.  What a joy it is has been to serve the Lord and to know the will of God for my family. As the music director, it is my joy to lead the choir and congregation in rich, honest worship for the express purpose of glorifying our heavenly Father. As the youth Pastor, it is my privilege to educate and inspire the Westwood teenagers in the Word of God.  This comes in various forms of youth activities, Wednesday night classes, and church camp.

The Goal:

Bring each teenager in an honest closer relationship with the Lord.  Study scripture in a way that reveals God’s expectations and purpose for their life.  Teaching to stand on their own feet.

The Desire:

That each one will hear (Phil. 4:9), apply (Rev. 1:3), and be faithful (II Tim. 2:2) in the calling the Lord Jesus Christ has for them, and administer the gift the Holy Spirit has given them.

The Purpose:

There will come a time when each one will have to be able to stand and walk on their own (Phil. 1:27).  Mom, dad, and Pastor will not be there to hold their hand. In the difficult times they will face, a godly foundation is crucial to their success in the Lord.
