Pastors & Staff

Ernie Price

Senior Pastor

Hi, my name is Ernie Price and I serve as the Senior Pastor of Farmstead Baptist Church. My wife Julie and I were married in 1987. We have two daughters (Anna & Haley) and two grandsons (Peyton & Luke). I have served as pastor of FBC since June of 2010. My hometown is Tuscaloosa, AL (Roll Tide!). My passion is preaching God’s Word and loving God’s people. My life verse is 2 Timothy 3:16-17=All scripture is given by inspiration of God, & is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. I believe the Bible, in its entirety, is the inspired, infallible, & inerrant Word of God.
