Rev. Mark Williams

Rev. Mark Williams

Senior Pastor

 In 1996 Bro. Mark Williams re-dedicated his life at Roopville Road Baptist Church located in Carrollton, GA.  During his years of service he served in many different capacities including Sr. adult minister, Sunday school teacher, pulpit committee, and usher team.  He was also licensed and ordained during his time at Roopville Road Baptist Church.

In 2000 God called him to his first pastorate at Center West Baptist Church in Delta, AL. 

There he was able to see God build the congregation from a minimal number to a thriving congregation. He also oversaw the building and completion of a new fellowship facility.

In 2003 he served under Dr. Bill Reynolds as Associate Pastor of Indian Creek Baptist Church in Bowdon, GA.

In 2004 he was called to Pleasant Ridge Baptist Church in Anniston, AL.  During his pastorate there he was able to see over one hundred people come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.

In 2007 he joined his new family at Centralhatchee First Baptist Church in Heard county, GA. Bro. Mark states, “I am very excited about the growth God is bringing to the congregation, and the opportunities to serve and to worship.  The Lord has really been blessing our church.  I give all praise and glory to Him always!”

Ashlee Johnson

Ashlee Johnson

Youth Leader

Ashlee’s heart for the youth began when she herself was in the youth group, always jumping at the chance to be able to help or assist.
Years went by. Distance grew between her and the church, between her and Jesus. His grace amazed her as he called her back with open arms after years of rebellion. It’s her life goal to serve the Lord and His kingdom, obeying her calling to spread the hope and love that the Lord so willingly gives.
She was married at CFBC in 2019 to Mr. Sage Johnson and they reside just over the Alabama line. They have two cats, two dogs, and five chickens.
