FBC Church Leaders

The Backbone and Strength of Our Church


The paid staff and our volunteers create an atmosphere of welcome and praise.

We welcome new comers to the Church and invite you to become one of our volunteers.

We have a home for you at FBC.

Dr. Lawrence Childs, Interim Pastor

Ryan Mills, Pastor

Pastor Ryan loves Jesus, God’s word, building up believers, and seeing the lost become found. He

believes that the joy of the Lord should shine forth in his preaching and through every follower of Christ!

Outside of pastoring, he enjoys spending time with his family, grilling, riding his motorcycle, traveling,

and enjoying the beautiful Virginia hills. He holds an undergraduate Business degree from Wake Forest

University, and is nearing completion of his Masters of Divinity (MDiv) from Liberty University. Pastor

Ryan joined the FBC Hillsville family in May of 2019, along with his wife, Audrey, and their baby girl.
