OUR LEAD PASTORS - Matthew & Alisha Castleberry

The Castleberry's married in July of 2010 and stepped into various ministries; serving as part of youth, kids, Sunday school, and worship ministries within churches. Together, Matthew (Matt) and Alisha, moved to Bearden to serve as youth pastors of Elevate Students, here at BFA in 2017.


After Matthew and Alisha received credentials through the Arkansas School of Ministry of the Assemblies of God in the fall of 2018, BFA asked if they would step into the Lead Pastor position because their heart for ministry and the people of this community were so apparent. Our Pastors, with their three children Levi David (son), Avery Lynn (daughter), and baby Cooper Dale (son), are ready to lead BFA into even better days full of faith, family, and compassion.
