Hi I am Pastor Shawn Bickel,
I grew up going to a Lutheran church, not one time did they tell me how to be saved. Upon graduating from high school I joined the military and was invited to an Independent Baptist Church outside the post gate, Maranatha Baptist Church in Oak Grove, KY, October 13, 1998 where I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior. God called me to preach in November of 1999. I have served in Sunday School ministries, bus ministries, and new convert ministry. From 2012-2014 I served as the Assistant Pastor of Faith Promise Baptist Church. God called me to Gallatin, TN in 2014 to start Hope Baptist Church.
