Senior Pastor

Michael Moody

Mike came to FBC Yuba in September of 2013 after serving churches in North Texas for many years. His
education includes a Bachelor of Theological Studies earned in 2007 and a Master of Theology
completed in 2020, both with Andersonville Theological Seminary. He is currently completing a
certification in church revitalization from Gateway Seminary of the Southern Baptist Convention.

One of his most evident qualities is his fervor for the proclamation of God’s Word, and discipleship for
those who have received it. His responsibilities at FBC include oversight of all church ministries,
preaching, counseling and ministering in times of bereavement and sickness. His primary responsibility
is to proclaim Christ to the Yuba community and surrounding area while equipping the church family to
witness for Jesus wherever they may be.

Mike & his wife Briana were married in 1992 and have three adult sons, two of whom are married. They
also have five grandsons (no granddaughters just yet) who bring so much joy to their lives. Mike enjoys
the outdoors, sports (especially TCU football), and is always on the lookout for the next “project” car to
work on. His most treasured times are times spent with his family.

Pete was called to FBC Yuba in November of 2018 as the Associate Pastor of Youth, after serving in several churches in Bryan County and as Director at Lake Texoma Baptist Resort Ministry. He is a licensed Southern Baptist minister and a NAMB endorsed Chaplain.

Pete has a passion for the Word of God and loves sharing that with others. As Associate Pastor of Youth, his responsibilities are teaching and equipping the youth how to love the Lord and share the gospel with others. He also fills in for the pastor when needed.

Pete and his wife Chloe have been married since 2013 and have one son. Some of his favorite things are getting to spend time with his family, the great outdoors, (especially sitting around a campfire), board games, and collecting pocket knives.


Minister of Music

Michael Wood

From an early age, Michael has loved music. As a preacher’s kid, it always surrounded him. He was raised on the classics: I’ll Fly Away, Power in the Blood, Victory in Jesus, Leaning on the Everlasting Arms, It is Well, How Great Thou Art, but also loves singing new songs. In recent years, Michael has felt God leading him into music ministry. His hope and prayer is that God would use him to encourage and strengthen his brothers and sisters in Christ through music. 

Michael is 23 years old and grew up in a homeschooling family as the second oldest of five children. He works full-time at Lowe’s in Durant and is in his fourth semester at Murray State College and hopes to attain an associate's in communications this fall. Michael's dream is to own a car dealership and Christian radio station one day. He loves spending time with family and friends, disc golf, campfires, and anything outdoors.
