Pastor Cody trusted Christ as his Savior in Apopka, FL at 9 years old.  Cody's heart was burdened for teenagers, as a high school senior, after the Lord worked in his heart during youth camp at the Wilds in 2009.  He followed the Lord's leading to study Youth Ministry in NC.  After completing the requirements for his bachelor degree in Youth Ministry, Cody joined the staff of First Baptist Church in July 2017 as Youth Pastor.  Cody and his wife, Alyssa, have two girls:  Audrey and Avery.
