Elder/Sr. Pastor - Ty Gooch

Ty came to know Christ at the age of 10 at a Baptist church he attended with his mother. When he went on to play college football on 2 Big Ten Championship teams at Northwestern University, he realized that though he was growing up as a man physically, he had not grown up spiritually since coming to Christ. Rather than a supreme focus on football and academics, his time at NU became centered on campus ministries. After graduation, he realized he wanted to spend his life serving the Lord vocationally. In 2000 Ty married & began working for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Over the course of nearly 10 years he served at 2 larger churches, as a part of his journey to serve a local church. Ty attended Moody Theological Seminary receiving his MDIV, after which he also completed his doctorate through Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. Ty has served as the Senior Pastor of FLBC since it began in 2011. The most important pursuit to Ty continues to be how he lives out and handles God’s word at home as a husband and father – desiring to live with his wife in an understanding way (1 Peter 3:7), and train up his children in the discipline and instruction of the Lord (Eph. 6:4).
