Hello! I’m Pete Smith. It's a privilege to serve alongside the folks at First Baptist Church of Kingman as pastor.
I was born in Sturgis, MI, raised in Baltimore, MD, schooled in Dubuque, IA and Dallas, TX before coming to serve as pastor here in Kingman, KS.
Victoria (wife of 14 years), 4 children (2 with brown eyes, 2 with blue eyes; 2 girls; 2 boys).
I recall asking my mom how to become a Christian. She answered. Shortly after I prayed asking for and trusting in the Lord’s forgiveness of my sins because of Jesus' death and resurrection. I was 5 years old. I was baptized thereafter around the age of 12.

Previous Work Experience
I’ve worked at Bible.org, in the auto insurance industry, as a campus security guy, t-shirts printer, carpenter and an electrician’s helper.
I have over 21 years of ministry experience in a variety of settings where I brought the combination of experience, attention to details, and education to encouraging faith in Jesus. I love communicating with others frequently, being an expert resource for others on matters concerning Christianity and the Bible, and solving problems in a creative way. My research interests include the Gospels, the covenants, future things, and the relationship between faith and conduct in the life of the believer.
