Associate Pastor

Bill Muse

I was born on December 15th, 1966 in Kennett, MO. I was saved on July 6, 1976 and was baptized the following Sunday at Southside Baptist Church in Kennett, MO.

I surrendered to the ministry in April of 1985 and began working with youth and preaching on the street corner in Hornersville, MO. I took my first pastorate position at Caruth Baptist Church while attending William (Southern) Baptist College in the winter of 1986. 

I married Lisa Emerson on April 30th 2000 and we quickly began a life together that has spanded from Memphis, to McGehee, to Marmaduke. We have three wonderful children.  Haley is 22 (and married to Alex Edwards), Hannah is 18 (and betrothed to Kenny Hall III), and Ty is 15.

My wife and I are both graduates of Senath-Hornersville High School. I have studied bible courses at both Southern Baptist College and Mid-America Baptist Bible College. 

I graduated from Arkansas State University in 2002 with a bachelors degree in Mid-Level education, in 2003 with a Master's in Special Education, in 2006 with Specialist Degree in Educational Leadership, in 2008 with a Master' in Gifted Education. 

I am currently the High School Principal (grades 7-12) in Marmaduke, where I was once the Police Chief for several years. 

I accepted the position of associate pastor at Lafe Baptist Church in September of 2006.

My favorite bible verse is II Corinthians 4:5

"For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake." 

I am still a child at heart and though the song "Sinner Saved By Grace" has always spoken to my mind as the best example of myself, I still believe that God does not save us to simply be sinners saved by grace. He calls us to be a Child of the KING! 

He tells us that if we believe, if we follow, if we trust, we can have Victory in Jesus!
