Dr. Matt Cook

Senior Pastor


I have been the Senior Pastor at FBC Wilmington since 2012. Prior to that I was the Senior Pastor of First Baptist Church Rosebud, Texas, and Second Baptist Church Little Rock, Arkansas. My wife, Allyson, and I were married in 1998. We have two children, Nathaniel and Caroline.

Fun Facts

Education: Samford University, B.A; Baylor University, M.Div. and Ph.D.

A scripture that is meaningful to me: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6

My favorite restaurant in Wilmington is… anything Mexican. Chips & salsa make me happy.

My favorite hobby… an active day is all about cycling, and a lazy day is all about college football. Either kind of a day is equally enjoyable.
