Our Pastor

Robert J. Sargent
Senior Pastor

Robert Sargent was born in Wangaratta, Victoria, Australia. At the age of 16 he trusted the Lord Jesus Christ as his Saviour, and shortly thereafter was baptized into the Wangaratta Baptist Church. He acknowledged the call of God upon his life as a 19 year-old college student, entering the Baptist ministry in 1971. In 1988 he and his family moved to the United States to serve as a pastor here at Bible Baptist Church. Prior to this, he pastored independent Baptist churches in the states of Victoria and Western Australia, and served as president of a Bible college. Brother Sargent and his wife, Vicki, have three children, all of whom are happily married and serving the Lord. You may contact Pastor Sargent at his Office or his Home.

Timothy P. Geist
Minister to the Pastor

Tim Geist grew up in St. Paul, MN and joined the U.S. Navy in 1986. He was saved in 1987 when God used a college History course to show Tim that the Bible is truly the Word of God in its entirety (I Thessalonians 2:13; II Timothy 3:16). Brother Geist served four years as an enlisted sailor before returning to college in 1990 to finish his bachelor’s degree. He was commissioned in 1992 and spent the remainder of his Naval career in airborne reconnaissance. Brother Geist oversees the Church’s finances and general business; he is one of the church song leaders and pianists; and he leads the Singles Pleasing God (SPG) ministry. He acknowledged God’s call on his life to preach in 2006 and graduated from the church’s Bible Institute in 2007. He came on staff in February, 2008 to continue his preparation for the ministry under Pastors Jeremiah and Robert Sargent. Brother Geist and his wife, Katie, are blessed with five children, four of whom are still at home. They attend Bible Baptist School where Katie works as a volunteer. You may contact Brother Geist at his Office.

Christopher A. Majors
Minister to the Pastor

Chris Majors grew up in Tennessee, and trusted Christ as his Savior at age ten. After running from the Lord during his teenage years, he eventually joined the United States Navy. Following a tour of duty at Lemoore, CA he was transferred to NAS Whidbey in 2005. At this time he and his wife (Selena) began attending Bible Baptist Church. Selena soon became a believer, and in November 2005 Chris surrendered to the call of God upon his life to preach the Gospel. After completing an enlistment of over five years, he was honorably discharged from the military, and in May 2007 began serving the Lord full time in the Church as a “minister to the pastors” (Acts 19:22). He is currently working at completing his Bible Training Institute courses, as he oversees the Church's Highway 20 outreach and directs the youth ministry of the Church. He and his wife are blessed with two daughters. You may contact Brother Majors at his Office.
