Upon graduating from high school in 1984, he enrolled at BJU beginning as an accounting major. In 1985 God called Dr. Monroe into the ministry, and he changed his major to Pastoral Studies.

He served on the pastoral staff for 3 years during which time he earned a Doctorate of Religious Education. Dr. Monroe was ordained to the ministry in July 1995. That fall the Lord led Dr. Monroe to take the position of senior pastor at Providence Baptist Church in Riverview, FL–a position he held until coming to Faith Baptist Church in January of 2009.

Jordan Alexander

1710_J_Alexander_PROOFS___005_7003.jpgJordan was born and raised in Brazil alongside his four siblings as church planting missionary kids. He was saved by God’s grace at the age of five after having many questions for several months. During his teen years the Lord allowed him to be a part of a church plant by a national pastor in another part of the town he grew up in. This ministry opportunity opened his eyes to the need of church planting and evangelism. After two years of working with this church, he returned to the United States to receive a B.S. in Bible at Bob Jones University. From his first year in college, he has been involved in the youth ministry at Faith. While in college, he grew in his knowledge and love for youth ministry. He married his favorite girl in the summer of 2015. After graduating from BJU, he began taking a few classes every year in the pursuit of a Master of Divinity. Lord-willing, he will be done with the degree by the time  he is 40!

Jordan and Kim are thankful for the privilege of serving alongside the parents of Faith Baptist Church in leading their teens to embrace a personal faith in Jesus Christ, a whole-hearted commitment to glorifying Christ and reaching their peers with the love of Christ.

Tim has sung or preached in about two thousand churches across the United States and in several foreign countries. Tim and Deborah were married in 1980. Deborah grew up in Finland as the child of missionaries, and received a B.A. and an M.M. in voice performance from BJU. Tim and Deborah are the parents of one daughter, Christina Elizabeth Dupont. Christina married Nathan Dupont, and together they serve at Grace Baptist Church in Elko, NV. Tim and Deborah are also the proud grandparents of Elizabeth Lucille, born in 2016.

Dr. John McCormick

In 1977, John and Debra McCormick moved from Pennsylvania to Greenville for John to major in accounting at BJU. Once there, John changed his major to business management; he then enrolled in the only elective class that would not conflict with his schedule - Foundations and History of Education. It was in that class that God called John into education.

After completing a degree in business management, John began graduate work in educational administration and supervision. Once again, due to "circumstances," the only available course that would fit his schedule was Educating the Exceptional Child. Through personal devotions in I Corinthians 12, God showed John that Christian schools need to provide Christian education to special needs young people. John pledged to be involved in special education wherever God directed.

After completing a master's degree, John sought God's will about the future. He served as a deacon at Faith and was familiar with Hidden Treasure, then in its third year. John contacted Dave Racke, the principal of Hidden Treasure, about volunteering. When God led the Rackes to Puerto Rico later that year, Pastor Vaughn asked John to become the new school administrator. He also encouraged John to pursue a master's degree in special education. Subsequently, during the next five years, John attended numerous classes and in 1991 received a Master of Arts degree in special education. Also during this time, he worked with Pastor Vaughn and several teachers to write Special Education: A Biblical Approach.

Soon after the book was published, Pastor Vaughn challenged John to pursue his doctorate in education. John accepted the challenge and in 1999 received his doctorate in educational leadership with a minor in special education. In October 2000, Hidden Treasure moved into its new 28,000 square foot building.
