First Baptist Church - Sherwood, Arkansas

Our Staff Team – Dr. Toby Havens


Toby Havens

Associate Pastor of Students & Missions


Toby was born in Lubbock, TX in 1976, but was raised in Russellville, AR. He graduated from Indiana University in 2003 with a B.A. in Biology, and completed his M.Div. from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in 2008. Toby has worked very hard over the past several years and in 2016 completed the classes necessary to earn a Doctorate in Family Ministry.  He came to FBC in January of 2009 with a love for Jesus, students and missions. Prior to joining the staff here, he was director of the Baptist Collegiate Ministry at Indiana University. Toby has been married to the most wonderful woman, Amber, since 2000, and they have three crazy children, Keeli, Gus, and Isla. During his free time (if he ever finds some!) you can find Toby playing guitar, cheering on the Indiana Hoosiers, woodworking, reading, changing diapers, or smothering all food in ketchup. No kidding.
