About Us

our staff

Bro. Alan Six was saved at the age of 18. After graduating from college, he worked as an accountant in Dallas for 6 years. He felt God's call on his life to vocational ministry in December 1993, and was ordained to the ministry at Ridgecrest Baptist Church shortly thereafter. Alan served as Associate Pastor at Ridgecrest until he was called to Marlin, Texas.

In May 1994, Trinity Memorial Baptist Church in Marlin, TX, called Alan as Pastor, where he served for 12 years. Although the Six family loved Marlin and the church, in 2006 they felt God leading them to Fort Worth so Alan could complete his ministry training at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.

Alan graduated from SWBTS in May 2008, and in July 2008, he began his ministry as pastor of First Baptist Church Newark. Alan and his wife, Vira, have three children, Hannah, Abbey & Samuel.

Jessica Wisener was born in Fort Worth, but raised in Lindale, Texas. She accepted Jesus as her savior and was baptised at a young age. In 2012 she came to live with her grandparents to help her grandmother.

Jessica had visited FBC Newark prior to moving to Aurora whenever she visited her grandparents. "Everyone always made me feel so welcomed from the first day I walked through those doors", she says. "Once I moved here, I knew First Baptist was the church home I had been looking for." Jessica has volunteered all throughout the church, and loves to help where she can.

"As our new church secretary, I pray God continues to lead me on the path to helping and serving others."
