WHO WE ARE


WE PARTNER TOGETHER AS CHURCHES
TO FULFILL THE GREAT COMMISSION.

As an association of Southern Baptist Churches within North Pulaski County, Arkansas, our core doctrinal beliefs are in line with the Baptist Faith and Message 2000. In addition, we are committed as an association to the following core values:

OUR CORE VALUES


PRAYER


We are resolved to be in continual prayer in order to discern and follow God’s will as well as seeking revival and spiritual awakening among our churches.

AUTONOMY


We are resolved to respect and show appreciation for the autonomy of the local church.

EVANGELISM


We are resolved to be evangelistic in all we do as an association of churches in order to see the community around us saved by the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

COOPERATION


We are resolved to maintain a commitment to cooperate in fellowship, ministry, and missions together as member churches for mutual encouragement and the furthering of God’s kingdom, both here and abroad.

OUR LEADERSHIP


GREG VARNELL

Associational Missional Strategist


I recently moved here from Jacksonville, Florida. My wife Denise and I have been married for over 33 years. We have four children; Ashlea who is married and lives in Alexandria, Va; Jordan and Kayla who are twins and live in Texas, and our youngest son Hunter who lives in Jacksonville, Fl. We are blessed!
I recently began my work here in the NPBA on August 1, 2020. We live in Jacksonville, Arkansas and love working with our pastors and churches. The NPBA represents over 50 churches in North Little Rock, Sherwood, Jacksonville, Cabot and Scott.
My desire as your AMS is found in Philippians 1:3-5 (ESV) which says “I thank my God in all remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now.”
