Meet Our Staff
David A. Shaffer - Senior Pastor
I accepted Christ as my personal Savior at the age of 7. While attending Glenville Bible Baptist in Wichita, Kansas, pastored by Dr. J.J. Adrian, my father desired to see a church established in our hometown of Clearwater. In 1968, Ninnescah Bible Baptist Church was formed, and at the age of 13, I began to lead the music. In 1978, I felt God call me into the pastorate and left for Baptist Bible College in Springfield, Missouri.
After graduation, I ministered as an Associate Pastor at Glenville Bible Baptist Church, Wichita, Kansas, under the leadership of Dr. Gary W. Grey. In July of 1985, the Board of Deacons ordained and commissioned me into the Gospel ministry. I have pastored in Wyoming, Oklahoma, Kansas, and Ohio. I began my ministry at Neuse Baptist Church in Raleigh, on Easter Sunday, 2010.
I believe lasting church growth comes from pastor to church, members to members, as well as, church to church relationships. Evangelistic efforts, Bible Clubs, prayer and encouragement meetings, Ladies' Bible Studies and Retreats, Men's Bible studies and prayer meetings are essential for the growth and spiritual health of a thriving church. I believe in the accountability of pastor, staff, church board, and membership to the Lord and to each other. Information is the key to communication and communication is the key to understanding.
My wife, Vickie, was also reared in a Christian home. She made a profession of faith early in her childhood, but always felt that her profession was coaxed and manipulated. While in her late teens, and deeply convicted by the Holy Spirit, she finally submitted to the fact that she had never accepted Christ. She then truly repented of her sin and turned by faith to Jesus. She was baptized following her salvation at Glenville Bible Baptist Church, Wichita, KS.
We are so thankful that God has moved us to Raleigh and is enabling us to minister to such great people as we have found at Neuse Baptist Church.
Bric Bolin - Associate Pastor
Suzan and I were both reared in ministry homes. At the age of 8 I accepted Christ as my personal Savior while attending the Camp of the Ozarks. Suzan began her walk with Christ at the age of 11 when, following a Lord's Supper service, one of the Deacons of the church took her aside and lead her to a saving knowledge of Christ.
Accepting the call of God, Suzan and I began our lives of service as students at Baptist Bible College where we met and were married on August 2, 1986. After completing our student teaching and graduating in 1988, we went forth to serve and have served in Indiana, Michigan, Oklahoma, Kansas and Illinois. On August 1, 2013 we moved to Raleigh, North Carolina to join Pastor Shaffer and the Neuse Baptist Church as their Associate Pastor, working with the music ministry.
Suzan and I have 4 children: Tyler is married to his High School sweetheart, Sarah and they live in Chicago, IL with our two grandchildren, Maggie and Baker; Meganne married David McKenzie and they are heading up the Quiet Heart Rescue Mission in South Carolina; Caleb and Devin are students in Jacksonville, FL at Trinity Baptist College.
We are happy to be at Neuse Baptist Church and looking forward to many years of service.
Jeff Paget - Associate Pastor
My father led me to the Lord, at the age of 5. I felt the Lord's calling to the ministry but resisted until surrendering to His call at the age of 24. Amy and I were married in August of 2001 by Pastor David Shaffer. In March of 2005 I surrendered to full time ministry and became the Youth Pastor and Music Minister at Temple Baptist Church in El Dorado, KS. While there the Lord gave me the desire to pastor and so I surrendered to attend Heartland Baptist Bible College, from 2009-2013, in Oklahoma City, OK. After graduating I served as the Music Minister at Grayson Bible Baptist Church in Sherman, TX, for two years until being called to join Pastor David Shaffer at Neuse Baptist Church in November of 2015.
My wife, Amy, was also raised in a Christian home and made a profession of faith at a young age but realized she never truly received Christ into her heart. Shortly after we were married I was able to lead her to the Lord. She has been a great asset to our family and me as we serve the Lord together.
Amy and I have two children: Ethan (12) and Ellie (9).We are very excited to serve alongside the people of Neuse Baptist Church and look forward to what the Lord has in store for us here.
Kevin Zander - Youth Pastor
At the age of 8, the Lord revealed His plan for me. I obeyed the call from the Holy Spirit and was saved at a vacation bible school in my hometown of Westminster, MD.
My life thereafter was changed, but with little discipleship, I never really understood what God wanted from me in life. I kept searching until the Lord introduced me to my future wife. Alana grew up in a Baptist church, and the first time I visited church with her, the Lord took hold of my life in a glorious way. With the Lord's grace and a servant's heart I began to grow in my spiritual relationship with God. I surrounded myself with Godly examples and spiritual leaders, and I soaked up as much as I could from local new-testament Bible believing Baptist churches.
In 2009 the Lord revealed a new purpose: to show today's youth what I was searching for so many years ago. I accepted the Youth Director position at Neuse, and with the help from my wife have encouraged our youth in the loving relationship we have in Jesus Christ, teaching the truth of God's commandments in a world filled with the Devil's ploys.
Alana and I were married in 2002, and God has blessed us with two beautiful children Carter and Ava.
Kay Hill, Sr. - Director of Missions
I trusted Christ as my Savior on November 11, 1944 in Saint Joseph, Missouri. I am a graduate of Baptist Bible College in Springfield, Missouri, class of 1955. My wife, Venica, and I celebrated our fiftieth wedding aniversary in 2003. We are the parents of twin sons, Kay and Clay.
I am a fourth generation cabinetmaker. We have a family business, Kay & Sons Woodworks, which I founded in 1972. My sons are currently running the business, providing me the opportunity to travel to Baptist churches all over America, motivating them to do more for missions.
It has been my pleasure to serve the Lord as music director of Neuse Baptist Church for forty-eight years. Additionally, I have served as a Deacon and Sunday School teacher. In 1969, I was inspired by the musical presentation, "So Send I You. As a result, I committed to aid missionaries in their efforts to reach their field.
I have been involved in Faith Promise Giving for forty-seven years. As a layman, it is my burden to challenge others in the joy of giving. The Lord has opened many doors over the years to share this burden. My desire is to spend the rest of my life encouraging churches to see the need of sending others around the world to share the Gospel. I have visited the mission fields of the Philippines, Japan, Hong Kong, and Mexico. I've also had the opportunity to assist in the building of several churches. I have spoken in mission conferences all over the United States and in the Philippines.
Please prayerfully consider allowing me the opportunity to share with your congregation the joy of mission giving and sending.
