Worship Leader - Eva Kroon Pike
Hi! My name is Eva Kroon Pike and I am the new worship leader for First Baptist Church Mulberry. At 6 weeks old I was adopted into a loving family that had been waiting and praying for a baby for 6 years.  These circumstances nurtured me into the singer/songwriter/worship leader I am today.  Before being called to Mulberry I have served in several local churches as worship leader and before that I had the wonderful opportunity to travel and share my music through concerts and radio throughout several cities and states.  I have 2 albums titled “Grace That Chose Me” & “Love Is All About You” as well as a Christmas single “Christmas Revolution”.  Through music I want more than ever to point people to God who sent His son to die so that everyone who believes in Him will live eternally. “If I’m anything close to what I’m meant to be, I owe it to the hands of Grace that chose me”.  I have also been married to my husband, Jonny, for 16 years and we have 4 boys; Jonathan (13), Corey (8), Bentley (4), and Lyric (2) and a baby girl, Abi Gail, (born in February of 2022).  We are excited to be at First Baptist Church Mulberry and cannot wait to see what God has in store for our family and the church. 


 Minister of Youth - David Alvarez
Hello! My name is David Alvarez but most people know me as Coach Chop! I have been the Youth Pastor here at First Baptist Church of Mulberry since the end of 2019. I have been working with students for about 10 years now. I am a “Mulberrian” through and through. I love everything about Mulberry, especially forming relationships with students and families in my community. Aside from working here at the church I am also an educator with Polk County Public Schools, teaching grades kindergarten through fifth. I also am a high school athletic coach at Mulberry High School. I coach Football, Soccer and Baseball. I am a firm believer in “nobody cares how much you know until they know how much you care” which is why I believe it is imperative of me to invest myself in the lives of students and families so I can better spread the Gospel in our community. If you are a parent or student reading this, I hope you will join us on Wednesday nights from 6:00-7:00 pm for loads of Christ-centered, scripture-solid, and family-focused fun!
