Jeremy Varner

Senior Pastor

On May 27 of 2009, Community Baptist Church unanimously voted for and called Pastor Jeremy Varner as its Senior Pastor.  Pastor Varner and his wife Allison have four Children, Faith, Luke, Karis, and Sarah.  The Varner’s served in Salisbury NC for 8 1/2 years at Maranatha Bible Church, before being called to Community Baptist Church of La Grange.  While serving in Salisbury, Jeremy served as an Associate Pastor/Youth Pastor.  Jeremy and Allison are both graduates of Piedmont International University in Winston Salem.

Pastor Jeremy currently holds a B.A in Biblical Studies with a pastoral major, as well as a Master of Arts in Biblical Counseling from Luther Rice University.  Pastor Jeremy is a very gifted speaker and teacher, weaving humor with his hermeneutics.  With a strong emphasis upon exegetical teaching, Christ centered preaching, Pastor Jeremy seeks to make much of Christ as he expounds upon the Word of God each and every Sunday. His teaching rotates between both OT and NT with a faithful line by line, verse by verse, book study, in effort to equip the Saints for the work of the ministry. With a focus on evangelism, discipleship, and equipping the church with a balanced biblical approach, Community Baptist Church may be where God would have you and your family to be a part of a healthy local body of believers.

Pastor Jeremy would love to hear from you if you have further questions about the ministry or beliefs of Community Baptist Church. (email:

Nate Deck

Youth Pastor

Nate grew up in Raleigh, NC as the son of two wonderful Word of Life Missionaries. It is this background that God used to develop his passion for ministry. With a Diploma in Biblical Studies from Word of Life Bible Institute and a B.S. in Education from Liberty University, God called Nathan and his High School Sweetheart Jessica to teach English at Word of Life in Germany. It is there that God further developed the passion in their hearts and after 2 years on the mission field led them back to the states to work with youth. They spent two and a half years at a church in Western North Carolina before God called their now family of 4 to serve at CBC.
