Hunter Guthrie (Pastor)

Originally raised in Florida, Hunter and his wife, Meredith moved to New England in 2018 to train for and pursue church revitalization in New England. He completed his undergraduate studies at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN, completed seminary training at RTS Orlando, and completed a revitalization pastoral internship with NETS. His passion is to teach and preach about God's grace, and he loves that he gets to serve his local church through pastoral ministry. 

Hunter was called to First Baptist in 2019. He has a wife and three daughters--who happen to be super cute. When he isn't studying or out with church members, Hunter enjoys running, hiking, skiing, playing music, and cheering for terrible football teams (see Jacksonville Jaguars and Vanderbilt Commodores). He also enjoys reading widely, from theology to sci-fi novels. 

If you're interested in the faith or just have a few questions about the church, he would love to meet for coffee. His passion is to help people come to know the joy of following Christ! 

Mark Wittman (Elder) 

Mark Wittman is a native of Pennsylvania but spent most of his adult life in Connecticut, where he served his local church and raised two daughters with his beloved wife Sandra. As a church elder and musician, Mark led worship and discovered a deep love of teaching the Bible. He recently retired from a long career in cancer drug discovery, and enjoys spending his free time fly fishing and exploring the great outdoors. 

Matt Hanudel (Elder) 

Matt was born and raised in Vermont. It was in a church there where he first heard about Jesus Christ and how he could be saved from his sin and have a new life in Christ. He also picked up a love of church planting. Matt is now driven by a passion to serve and worship Jesus Christ. He is joyfully married to Cassie Hanudel whom he met at a local NETS church plant and is busy raising up two children, Audrey and Jacob. When he is not creatively designing new inventions at work he can be found spending time outdoors with his family and engaging with the church body.
