Our Leadership

Jonathan Turner - Elder Lead Pastor

Jonathan is blessed to be the lead pastor at Floral Park in the great city of Butte, MT. As the lead pastor at Floral Park Baptist Church, Jonathan desires for the local church to always be reforming. Reforming as Martin Luther once said, "The Word did it", that is where the Word of God shapes all of doctrine & life within Christ's church. Jonathan is a firm believer in the doctrines of grace & is always open to sit down over a cup of coffee to talk about Scripture, Theology, life & maybe even some football. 

Jonathan married his best friend and better half Chelsea on July 20, 2013. They love living in Big Sky country! The Turner's enjoy hiking, kayaking, shooting or trying new things in the great outdoors. If you want to know where you can get an incredible cup of coffee, then don't hesitate to ask us. We'll even meet you there & buy you a cup. 

Jonathan went to Liberty University where he received his undergraduate degree in Biblical Studies and his Masters of Arts in Theological Studies. Jonathan also received a Masters of Divinity in Christian Ministry from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. Presently, Jonathan is working towards a Doctorate in Expository Preaching from Master's Seminary.

Scott Doherty - Elder

Scott grew up in Butte as a Catholic, but when he was 28 years old, God brought him to repentance and faith in our Savior Jesus Christ. Scott and his wife Kim have four children and nine grandchildren. Scott and Kim spent 5 years overseas as missionaries. Scott was one of the founding elders in a church plant in Cusco, Peru, which is still growing today. Along with church planting, Scott did pioneer work among the Ashaninka people in the Peruvian jungle. Floral Park Baptist has the privilege of being in missionary partnership with these Peruvian missionaries today.

Bob works for MSU and brings a wealth of technical knowledge to FPBC. Since joining the church both Bob & Kathy have been involved in different areas. They are excited about what King Jesus is doing & will do within Butte through FPBC.
