About Us

Pastor – David Packard    
Dave was raised in Connecticut and came to know the Lord under the ministry of Evangelist (then pastor) Paul Mershon in May of 1990 after moving to San Diego, California. During that time, he met Heather at Fundamental Baptist church in Escondido. They were married in 1993 and have been blessed with four children, Kaitlyn, Jonathan, Aimee, and Josiah. Dave attended Ambassador Baptist College and was ordained in 2009 under the ministry of Joshua Gregg of Ponderosa Baptist Church in Flagstaff, Arizona. Dave and his family have served in a variety of ministry opportunities and accepted the call to pastor the Big Valley Bible Baptist church in April of 2017.
Founding Pastor – H. Eugene "Gene" Wilburn    
Pastor and Mrs H. Eugene "Gene"  Wilburn founded Big Valley Bible Church in 1980 and served faithfully from that time until April 2017 at which time leadership of the church was turned over to Pastor Packard. Pastor Wilburn continues to be honored at Big Valley Bible Church, serving as Pastor Emeritus and fulfilling the biblical role of 'elder', assisting the current pastor and the congregation as needs arise.
The Elders of Big Valley Bible Church are godly men, who are sound in the faith and who have a record of faithful service.  They meet regularly with the Pastor to advise and give assistance in matters of discipline and spiritual oversight of the church.  Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellors there is safety.  Proverbs 11:14
The word "Deacon" means "one who serves."  Deacons were highly regarded and carefully selected.  The qualifications to serve are found in 1 Timothy 3:8-13.  The Deacons are selected to assist the Pastor in ministry to meet the needs of the flock.  Deacons should pray for, visit, encourage, counsel and be a spiritual model of Christ-likeness to the congregation.
