Ministers & Staff

Dr. Darren Lambert

Senior Pastor

Darren Lambert serves as Senior Pastor at FBC. Darren is passionate about helping people experience the life-changing power of Jesus Christ. He loves helping believers grow in their walk with God and their understanding of the Scriptures, developing a Kingdom-driven focus. Darren has been in ministry since 1991. He and his sweet wife Annette enjoy serving the Lord together as a couple. God has richly blessed them with three children, Jesse, their biological son, and Meleah Shae and Chesnea, who they adopted. After much loss and much prayer, the Scripture “For this child I prayed, and the Lord has granted me my petition that I made to Him.” (I Samuel 1:27) was echoed in their lives. In 2015, through His grace and for His glory, God refashioned their family into a beautiful reflection of His Kingdom through the adoption of their girls. Upon coming to FBC Salisbury, the Lamberts were both thrilled and encouraged to see how many families have also been touched by adoption. Along with spending time with his family, Darren enjoys traveling, woodworking, golf, and sharing life with his church family.
