Pastor

REV. REGAN STOOPS

Rev. Regan Stoops began his service as Pastor at First Baptist Church of Gardner in January 2017. Regan is a graduate of William Jewell College with a B.A. in Religion and of Northern Seminary with an M.Div. He comes to FBG from Mount Pleasant, Iowa where he served as pastor for over 10 years. 

Regan and Katie have been married for 15 years and have 3 boys. Carson is 11 years old and in 5th grade, Jackson is 9 and in 3rd grade, and Hayden is 7 and in 1st. They love most sports and can be found playing whatever one is in season on their free time. They also love to trade baseball cards.

Katie teaches Kindergarten at Grandstar Elementary in Gardner. She too is a graduate of William Jewell College with a degree in Elementary Education and Early Childhood. She loves playing sports with her boys, running, and cuddling up on the couch with their boxer, Cassius.

Regan loves running - especially ultra marathons, camping, playing sports, cheering on the Kansas City Royals and Chiefs and Kansas Jayhawks, playing guitar, messing around on Android devices, and riding around town on his electric unicycle. He's a total extrovert so if you're ever around the church and want to pop in, he'd love it.
