Pastor Mallard & Ms. Tammy
My name is Shane Mallard and I have the privilege of being the pastor of the Emmanuel Baptist Church of Dexter Missouri. My wife, Tammy and I have three daughters and have made Dexter our home. We were raised in this area and are glad the Lord saw fit to bring us back. As well as pastoring Emmanuel, I work for the Dexter School system as a Bus Driver and in the Maintenance Department.
Both my wife and I were saved while I was in the Air Force stationed at Whiteman Air Force Base, Knob Noster, MO. After we trusted Christ as Saviour we were baptized into the membership of Calvary Baptist Church in Knob Noster. As we would come home and visit family we found it hard to find a good Bible preaching church that was still standing in the Old Paths. The Lord used this time to burden our hearts for the ‘Bootheel’ of MO. I was called as Pastor of Emmanuel while serving as an Assistant Pastor to Pastor Jeff Ables and the Berean Baptist Church. We came to Dexter in July of 2004.
Our training came for the most part in Calvary Baptist Church and Berean Baptist Church. We served in every capacity one can imagine while members of these great churches. We did attend Baptist Bible College in Springfield, MO as well.
