About The Sammy Frye Family


Sammy Frye and wife Sandra

 What a joy it has been to pursue the desire of my heart in ministry to young people these past 18 years at Yates Thagard Baptist Church. I am so thankful for the grace of God to my wife and I.  We have seen many young people come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, grow in their faith, and go on to serve the Lord, several in full time service. We are thankful for our church family, the support of parents, and a tremendous group of teen leaders. What a privilege to join hands and hearts together as we challenge and equip young people to be youth for truth in the secular culture in which we live. 

We have been created by God for His glory (Is. 43:7) and for His pleasure (Rev. 4:11), and it is my desire that in every aspect of the ministry here the Lord Jesus Christ will be honored and glorified. With this truth as a foundational principle, it is my desire to be used of the Lord to evangelize and disciple people, and, in so doing, equip them for the work of the ministry. It is my heart to see people fulfilling the purpose of the Lord for their lives in devoted, diligent, dependent Christ-centered living.

 It is a joy and pleasure when our Lord sends visitors our way, and we want to invite you to come and worship with us. We are delighted to make new friends and it is our desire to be used of the Lord in your life to help you take that next step of obedience in seeking to glorify Him and fulfill His purpose for your life. There are many opportunities both for growth and ministry here at Yates Thagard Baptist Church.  We invite you to join hands and hearts with us as we seek to grow together in the grace and knowledge of Christ.
