Hello, I’m Pastor John Bedsworth. I  have been the Associate Youth Pastor here at FBC Gower since February 2017. I was born in Kansas City MO.

My formal education includes a Bachelor’s degree in Biblical Studies from Hannibal La Grange University. I am currently pursuing a Master’s of Divinity with an emphasis in Counseling from Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.

My practical experience comprises the past five years where I have served as Youth Pastor, Church Intern, Camp Ministry, Head Camp Pastor and a variety of other Youth related ministry activates.

My wife Lindsey and I have been married for a little over a year and have strong passion for youth and church ministry. We love spending our time outdoors camping and sporting activities.

My favorite verse in the Bible and one I strive to live my life by is John 3:30 “He must increase, but I must decrease.”

Worship Pastor

Seth Mason

 Seth is not new to the Gower area. His Father was the pastor at FBC when Seth was born. After moving to St. Louis Missouri, the Masons moved back to the St. Joseph area. 

 Seth first felt a call to ministry after spending his highschool years volunteering in his youth praise team. When it came time to choose a career route, Seth enrolled at Midwestern Baptist College to persue a degree music. After two years at Midwestern Seth join the FUSION missions program and spent a semester in South Sudan in Africa. It was there that Seth truely surrendered his life to Jesus as Lord and began to consider what a call to ministry would really mean.

 Seth Graduated with his Bachelors in Christian Ministry with an emphasis in Cross Cultural Studies.

 Seth has to date been leading worship in three different churches over a period of 11 years. 

Seth's favorite scripture is 

Ephesians 2:1-5

[1] And you were dead in the trespasses and sins [2] in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience—[3] among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind. [4] But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, [5] even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved— (ESV)
