Lead Pastor

Chris Hicks

Hi, I’m Chris and I’m the Lead Pastor at Belvidere Heights Baptist Church. I’m primarily responsible for the overall leadership of the church and for the teaching on Sunday. I seek to teach the Scriptures and equip people to reach their God given potential.


My wife Cheryl and I came to Belvidere in February 2010. We married right out of high school in North Little Rock, Ark. We have two daughters, Crystal and Cheri who are both married. We have two great son-in-laws, Zack and Lucas, and God has blessed us thus far with five grandchildren, Alaina, Alyvia, Alex, Levi, and Caris.
My love for the Belvidere Heights community and greater area began when I visited the area to look around after being contacted about the church. What great potential lies within the people in this area.

BIRTHDAY: August 5

EDUCATION: B.A. in Pastoral Ministry from Williams Baptist College; Masters of Divinity from Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary


  • Places – I enjoy going to Florida and the white sand beaches, going on mission trips anywhere, and being anyplace with my family.

  • TV/Movies – I watch Hallmark, HGTV, The Good Doctor, and enjoy action, war, and spy movies.

  • Sports Team – I love all kinds of sports. My favorites are the Arkansas Razorbacks, Kansas City Royals, and Kansas City Chiefs!
  • Hobbies – Golf, Hunting, Travel
  • Life Verse – My life verse is the first verse my mother taught me as a child. Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.” John 14:6 This verse has carried me through my life and inspires me to share this truth with others.
  • Enjoy most about ministry – I enjoy seeing people find purpose and meaning in their life through a growing relationship with God through Jesus Christ.
