Bro. Terry Simmons Jr.  is the Senior Pastor of First Landmark Baptist Church.  Bro. Terry was saved at the age of 16 when he realized he was a lost sinner and needed a Savior. In March of 1998, Bro. Terry accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Savior and made a profession of faith at Olive Hill Missionary Baptist Church.

In July 1999, Bro. Terry was burdened by something that was unexplainable and after seeking the will of God, He knew it was the Holy Spirit leading him to preach the gospel message.  At the age of 17, at Budd Creek Baptist Camp in dorm number 3, he surrendered to gospel ministry. The follow Sunday at Olive Hill MBC, he preached his first sermon, “What a Sacrifice” from Genesis 22, which lasted a whole 3 minutes.

On August 1, 2009, Bro. Terry married his wife, Misti Little-Simmons. 

God has blessed Bro. Terry with the opportunity to work as an Associate/Youth Pastor as well as a Senior Pastor. Bro. Terry was blessed to be the Associate/Youth Pastor of FLBC from October 31, 2003 till May 31, 2007. In July 2007, Bro. Terry accepted the call to be Senior Pastor of Park Missionary Baptist Church in Prescott, AR where he served faithfully. On May 13, 2009, Bro. Terry accepted the call of FLBC to become their Senior Pastor.

Bro. Terry is committed to FLBC and is looking forward to the church family of First Landmark pressing forward. The apostle Paul stated in Philippines 3:14, “I press toward the mark.”  Today we are pressing toward that mark as well in the areas of life changing messages, being a loving church, and being a Progressive Baptist Church.


1.   We press toward the future with a life changing message. Today, we have a message to tell each and every person that Jesus Christ is the only Savior. He is alive, preparing, and waiting to come back to receive his children.  The Message is simple, Jesus our Savior, who was crucified on the cross, and rose in victory three days later, wants a relationship with each person.  1 Corinthians 6:20 states “For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit which are God’s.

2.   We press toward the future as a loving church. It is our goal to establish a warm and welcoming church where you are not just another visitor, but that you know our names and we know yours. We believe that FLBC is a place where “Friends become Family” and seek to glorify God in the body.  
3.   We press forward as a Progressive Baptist Church. As the Pastor of FLBC, I understand that we minister to a 21st century church and yet our message is still the same. Jesus died for the sins of the world and we should worship Him in spirit and truth. We believe that God’s Word can be applied to every situation, circumstance, and challenge. We may have different methods, but the Word of God never changes.

Children's Ministry Director

Alicia Frey

My name is Alicia Frey and I am blessed with the privilege of serving as the Director of Children’s Ministry at First Landmark Baptist Church. My husband and I are thankful to be apart of this church family and for these godly people who have adopted us and love us.

God is writing the vision for the Children’s Ministry and I am following His leading.  We at First Landmark are taking a focused approach to God’s Word.  The children are taught Bible character lessons each week with application and reinforcements that can relate to their life here and now.  It is our job and our calling as a church to make sure we equip both the children and their parents with the necessary resources and support to nurture young hearts and minds so they grow to love their Savior.  Proverbs 22:6 “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.” 

Our children’s program goal is to equip every child with the knowledge and desire to reflect Christ through their lives.  I feel that it is important for every child, no matter their age, to recognize that God wants to use them for His purpose and glory each and every day; at church, at home, at school, when they are with others and when they are alone.  1 Timothy 4:12 Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity.” 

This ministry is the Lord’s and we are all ambassadors for Him.

  • 2 Corinthians 5:20 “Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.”
  • Mark 16:15 “And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature”.
