Drake Caudill

Senior Pastor


Ministry Role & Responsibility:

The role that God has blessed me with is the Senior Pastor of First Baptist Church of Carmi, Illinois. The responsibility that God has given to me with the role of Senior Pastor is to simply love His people at First Baptist Church of Carmi and the city of Carmi well - all for His glory, of course. My passion is to love His people, in Carmi and the world, by reminding everyone of how wonderful God is and how we can know Him through Jesus, His Son. 


About Me:

I was blessed to marry Alyssa in 2008. We have four children: Timothy, ZoeBeth, Genesis, and Jonathan - and a dog, Goldie. We moved to Carmi in 2018 and have enjoyed getting to know the wonderful folks who live in Carmi. We relax as a family by playing video games together, watching movies, or playing with Legos.


On Staff at First Baptist Carmi Since:

August 2018


Favorite Scripture:

“Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.” (Philippians 2:3)


Interesting Fact:

One interesting fact about me is that I preached my first sermon at 12 years old in West Virginia. After that, when I was not in school or playing basketball in the backyard, I spent my teenage years preaching in local churches, youth camps, and youth revivals.
