First Baptist Church - Sherwood, Arkansas

Our Staff Team – David Tatum


David Tatum

Associate Pastor for Music & Worship


“It is the passion of my heart to lead others to know God through worship. I believe that we were created for worship, and that music is an important part of that worship. I believe that music was created by God to encourage us to know Him more. It enables us to center our mind’s attention and our heart’s affection on the Lord. The calling God has placed on my life is to encourage God’s people to worship Him, and to enable my Pastor to lead a people ready to meet God, and assist other staff members in helping believers and seekers draw near to the Lord.”

David came to First Baptist in October of 2014. He has served churches in Arkansas and Texas. David has graduated from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and Hardin-Simmons University.

David and his wife, Denise have three children: Garrett, Tyson, and Kenzie. Their family loves to cook and eat together!



Then the temple of the Lord was filled with the cloud and the priests could not perform their service because of the cloud, for the glory of the Lord filled the temple of God.
