OUR PASTORS

REV. LUKE LUNCEFORD

SENIOR PASTOR

luke@fbcrm.org

Pastor Luke was called by First Baptist to serve as Pastor in April 2018.  He was raised in the Charlotte area and attended Appalachian State University, where he obtained his Bachelor of Science in Communication.  He went on to earn his Masters of Divinity from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest. Pastor Luke comes to Rocky Mount from Boone, NC, where he served two different churches in nine years of ministry.  

Luke is married to his high school sweetheart, Amy. Together they have three daughters. Luke and Amy enjoy building relationships with anyone and everyone. They believe that aside from the Word of God and the Spirit of God, relationships are the greatest tool God uses to draw people to himself. Luke and Amy are grateful to serve at First Baptist Church and look forward to how God will use First Baptist for His glory in the Rocky Mount community.

After graduating from college, Shawn worked in the finance industry.  He worked with AXA Advisors for over 11 years and was a founding member of Sound Partners-a financial planning firm. It was during his time as a financial planner that God began calling Shawn to ministry.

JEFF ALLRED

WORSHIP PASTOR

jeff@fbcrm.org

Jeff began his ministry at First Baptist in October 2019. He previously served churches in Georgia, Kentucky, and North Carolina. He has earned degrees from Brewton Parker College, Mercer University, Southern Seminary, and most recently, the Doctor of Worship Studies degree from The Robert E. Webber School of Worship Studies. His career experience in ministry has largely been in the areas of music, worship, and administration. As a pastoral musician, Jeff’s greatest desire is to use music and the arts as formational tools to help create spaces for worshipers to divinely encounter their Creator.  

Jeff is married to his best friend and love of his life, Lisa, who currently serves as an assistant principal at Rolesville High School. They are the proud parents of two grown children, Brandon and Kathryn, a wonderful daughter-in-law, Sally, and have two nearly perfect grandchildren, Skylar and Jaxon. When not working, Jeff enjoys reading, cooking on the green egg, watching college sports, and figuring out how to make technology work for him.
