It’s a great week at Albuquerque’s First Baptist Church as we welcome new staff members Matt Snook and Ty Hageuwood.
Matt joins us from Washington, Oklahoma. He served as Music Minister at First Baptist Church in Washington also nurturing young lives as a track coach and elementary music teacher. Matt has a bachelor’s degree in Church Music from Oklahoma Baptist University and cheers for the Oklahoma City Thunder.
I strive to love people and minister to their needs. It is my duty and privilege to share the love of Christ with everyone around me. My truest form of worship is obedience. – Matt Snook
Matt shares his life with wife Emily and their sons Coen, 10, and Bennet, 1. When not exploring with his boys, Matt enjoys remodeling houses and daydreaming about secret passages. (Those secret passages might come in handy one day.)
Matt’s favorite verse: Colossians 3:23
Happy to return to mountain views and yummy food, Ty is no stranger to AFBC. He accepted Christ during his sophomore year of high school when he was a part of our student ministry. Now he’s back and ready to lead our students in their walk with Christ.
I believe that when Christ saves us we are no longer the same. This calls us to passionately pursue Him through evangelism, discipleship and service. Once you’ve seen the Lord, you are obsessed with what you’ve seen.
– Ty Haguewood
Ty previously served as Student Pastor at First Baptist Church in Calhoun City, Mississippi. Currently pursuing his bachelor’s degree, Ty is a New York Yankees fan who enjoys hip-hop music, watching movies and eating Dion’s pizza.
Ty’s favorite verse: Hebrews 2:9
Please help us welcome them (in the comments). We can’t wait to see how God uses Matt and Ty to impact lives.
