Staff and Leadership


Lead Pastor

Will Barnett came to FSBCW in May of 2020 after serving as an assistant pastor at First Baptist Church of Puxico, Missouri.  The Lord saved him during his freshman year of college at Arkansas State University and called him to the ministry soon after graduation in 2016.  This eventually led Will to enroll in Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary where he will be graduating with a Master of Divinity degree in August of 2020.  By His grace, God has developed in Will a passion for the glory of God through the gospel of Jesus Christ.  To that end, Will is committed to expository preaching of the Word of God and the building up of the local church.  Both he and his wonderful wife Hannah are originally from Southeast Missouri, and they have two sons: Henry and Judson.  




Associate Pastor

Born and raised Arizona native, Jason Stanley, has lived in Wickenburg all of his adult life. He met and married his high school sweetheart, Silvia. They have been married 11 years and have 4 children. Three girls: Jaelie, Milah and Nola and one little boy, Eli. Jason is the Student Ministry Leader, Children's Director, and Worship Leader.

Jason's desire is to see the young people of the church and this community grow and develop an authentic faith that is their own. A faith that is not based on those around them, but based on their growing personal relationship and desire to know God deeper.
