 I look forward to helping South Main Baptist Church discover God's vision and helping our church grow numerically and spiritually. It's by God's will that I came here, and I absolutely love the people that make up our church.

I love preaching God's word, and making it relevant and practical for our everyday life.

I was born in Camden, AR, and went to Seminary at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, TX.

Favorite songs - Praise You in the Storm by Casting Crowns, Creed by Third Day, Agnus Dei by Third Day & Michael W. Smith, Revelation Song by Phillips Craig & Dean, The Old Rugged Cross, In the Garden, Amazing Grace.

Favorite Musical Artists - Third Day, Casting Crowns, Mercy Me, Michael W. Smith, artists in the Gaither tours, etc.

Hobbies - Riding motorcycles and CMA, ABBA, and FAITH RIDERS ministries; deer hunting; playing guitar; Razorback games.

Never hesitate to come to me for prayer, spiritual guidance, and to give me the name of someone who needs Christ. Don't exalt me to a pedestal, but let me be your friend.

Bi-Vocatonal Minister of Music

Gary Booker

Hello, My name is Gary Booker and I serve as the bi-vocational Minister of Music and am a local business owner. I have lived in Crossett most of my years, where I was saved as a teenager and graduated high school in 1977.  I reside in Crossett with my wife, we have two children and one granddaughter.

I know we serve an awesome God who puts people in our lives to mentor and guide us to our place of service.  This stands true in my life and reflects where God has placed me.

My heart for ministry lies in encouraging others of every age group to be all that God has called them to be.  Music is a tool that God can use to move us beyond our comfort zone for His greater purpose.

My favorite music is anything that speaks to the heart, while honoring and glorifying our Lord and Savior.

I have many favorite scripture verses including Psalms 95:1-2, " Come let us sing for joy to the Lord, let us shot aloud to the Rock of our salvation.  Let us come before Him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song."

South Main is a great place to worship and experience God's blessings.  We are a church family, adhering to the words of Jesus in Matthew 22:37-39, " Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.  This is the first and greatest commandment, and the second is like it, love your neighbor as yourself."
