Wendy Cutchins

Wendy earned a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Winthrop University as well as a Master’s degree in Education with an emphasis in divergent learning from Columbia College.

During her years in education, she has taught third, fourth, and fifth grades in South Carolina, North Carolina, Texas, and Georgia.  The majority of her teaching years where spent in the award winning Fort Mill School District of South Carolina where she taught at Gold Hill Elementary School. During her time there, she served as grade level chair and was named Teacher Of The Year. Although the majority of her teaching experience is in public schools, she has also taught at Hyde Park Christian School in Austin, TX.

WENDYWendy was born in California but, because her dad was in the Air Force, she moved all over the world before landing at Shaw Air Force Base in Sumter, SC. Wendy and Stephen met in ninth grade at Sumter High School and began dating in tenth grade. Shortly after they started dating, Stephen shared the gospel with her and led her to faith in Christ. Wendy was later baptized at their home church, Alice Drive Baptist Church.

Today, Wendy enjoys serving in the church in the area of technology. She loves spending time with her family and enjoys photography as a hobby. In the summer of 2012, Wendy and Stephen co-led a mission trip to Costa Rica. During the trip, the team was able to work with several hundred Costa Rican kids at Palomo Elementary School in Costa Rica. Wendy led the team to put on four separate Bible school events. Hundreds of Costa Rican children rotated around and were exposed to the message of God’s grace.

I just can’t hide my excitement about all this! This past Sunday, October 22nd, I became the Senior Pastor at First Baptist Church of North Augusta. I am humbled to transition into this new role. For over five years, Wendy and I have been praying that God would prepare me to be a Senior Pastor, and that He would also prepare a church for me.

As I mentioned last Sunday from the pulpit, on March 18th of this year, I woke up at 3:28am. This was an unusual moment as I am a heavy sleeper and rarely wake up at night on my own. After a few moments, I curiously asked God why He had woken me up and what He wanted to tell me. I immediately heard a voice in my head that said, “I am going to give you a church.” The next day, I hesitantly talked with Wendy about it. I was skeptical of the experience actually being from God. I soon had clarity that it was His voice but had no idea it would be a church as amazing as this one!

After praying and talking with Wendy about it more, we realized that He was preparing us for what was to come. In the weeks that followed, God began revealing to us a few things we needed to remove from our lives and also a few areas that needed to be further developed. We committed to patiently wait on God to work this out in the way He saw fit. Only God could have orchestrated the events that led to this moment.

For Wendy and me the last five years have been quite a journey, including multiple steps of faith, following God’s voice. A close friend (who was coming to visit from out of town) recently asked me how to get to the Augusta area and how long it would take to get there. My response was … about 5-6 years. Start in Charlotte, NC, go through the mountains of Asheville, NC, and then stop by in Austin, TX. After that, you are almost there. Although, I didn’t come to FBCNA in 2016 to be the Senior Pastor, I clearly came to FBCNA to become the Senior Pastor.

I want to thank the people who have supported me over the years and during this process. It has been a great joy to serve at FBCNA as Pastor of Discipleship, “Interim-Interim” Pastor, Interim Pastor, and NOW I look forward to serving as Senior Pastor. I look forward to many years of doing life together with the people in this loving community of faith. Let’s turn a new page together in the life of this historic and vibrant church, A CHURCH THAT PRAYS. Wendy, Madi, Sarah, and I love you all very much and look forward to serving in this new capacity.

“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to HIM be glory in the church – by Christ Jesus to all generations – forever and ever. Amen.” Ephesians 3:20-21
