Todd Manuel - Student Minister

Todd was born and raised in Carbon Hill. He is a graduate of Carbon Hill High School and attended the University of Alabama. He has been attending FBC since he was on the cradle roll. In addition to being our Student Minister, Todd works at McGehee Engineering in Jasper. Todd loves movies, good food, and the dramas he orchestrates for the students to perform every Christmas and Easter.

In his own words:

Hello-I’m Todd and I’m a sinner. The reason I’m writing this is because there’s good news for people like me, and it’s grace. God’s grace led me back to my hometown church that I neglected and tried to put out of my life.

Raised in Carbon Hill, I had the best family with a loving mom, dad, and sister. Mom made sure we were at church every time the doors were open. I loved our pastors and youth minister, but after high school I forgot all I ever knew about being a Christian – thank GOD, HE didn’t forget about me. He brought me back home.

The center of our Youth Worship is Jesus. Everything in the Bible points to Him. He is worthy to be praised and He can change your life. On Sunday mornings we start our Sunday school with FUEL. Basically it is the Bible on DVD, with dramas and lessons that students need to see. Guess what? It works! FUEL wets your appetite for Bible study and makes you realize what a gift the Bible is. God's Word is ALIVE – It speaks to you.

Our youth love to perform human dramas and videos. We practice and fellowship together until we get it right to glorify God. We have some musicians in our bunch and they are in the process of forming a youth praise band. This summer is packed with mission trips in state, and out of state. We love to fellowship together at Smith Lake and working fundraisers. You can’t spell fundraiser around here without fun.

We’d love for you to visit us – to God be the glory!"



We meet Wednesdays at 7PM upstairs and Sundays at 11AM and 5:30PM in the same place!

We are always involved in a ministry or event and each Christmas and Easter we work hard to prep a Cantata for the whole church to enjoy.

There's a place for you to grow at FBC!
