Pastor Dan Labieniec and Family

Thank you for your interest in West Hills Baptist Church.  We are a church with a rich and wonderful history.  I have had the pleasure to serve this diverse assembly since June of 2010. 

I want you to know that I’m deeply humbled by that privilege and do not take the responsibility of shepherding God’s flock lightly.  The passion of my heart is that the Lord Jesus will be glorified in the building of His church. 

With that in mind it is my joy each week to proclaim the life-transforming power of God’s Word through a verse-by-verse exposition of the sacred text, thus allowing God to reveal His beauty to us through  its pages.  It is because of the ongoing influence of His Word that our love for the Savior and each other continues to grow. 

I am thrilled with the work which God has called me to and look forward to the future with great anticipation.  My prayer is that the Lord Jesus will continue to add to His church those who have the same passion to know Him, the same zeal to serve Him, and the same desire to be like Him.  If that’s you, then I invite you to come visit us and see for yourself what God is doing here at West Hills Baptist Church in Long Island.

Sincerely yours,

Pastor Dan Labieniec

Associate Pastor Evan Charles and Family
 
 
Pastor Evan joined our church early in 2021 as Associate Pastor. After coming to the Lord as a child, God began working in Evan’s heart regarding ministry near the end of high school. Then, throughout his college years, God directed him more specifically to local church ministry.

 

While completing his MDiv from Bob Jones University in Greenville, SC, Evan began serving as the Youth Pastor at Bible Baptist Church in Matthews, NC. After 3.5 years of service and ministry there, God graciously brought the Charles family to West Hills Baptist Church in NY. Pastor Evan is grateful to be here on Long Island and a part of what God is doing through West Hills Baptist Church.

 

Of all the many blessings God gives in his common grace, some of Evan’s favorites are playing/watching sports (Go Purdue!), reading books (theology/biblical studies, productivity, children’s fiction), and walking/hiking outdoors.

 

He is joined in ministry by his wife, Jamie, and three children: Landon, Blair, and Layton. The Charles family loves to study and talk about the Word of God and are excited to share its truth on Long Island.

 
 
Pastoral Intern Kevin Lopez and Family
 
 
Pastoral Intern Kevin Lopez became a member of West Hills Baptist Church in February 2016. Shortly after the church voted to support him through Seminary at Clarks Summit University, also known as Bible Baptist Seminary in PA. He will be completing his MDiv in May of 2022.
 
Kevin is excited to serve in the ministry that the Lord has placed him in. He enjoys training others in evangelism, engaging unbelievers with biblical apologetics, fellowshipping with the brethren, and having theological discussions. He desires to learn from the pastors at West Hills Baptist Church and gain experience for when he becomes a pastor.
 
Kevin and Veronica were married in June 2016. By the grace of God, they now have 2 children, Sophia and Sebastian.
