Senior Pastor Abe Cardosa graduated from undergraduate studies at Grand Rapids Baptist College and Seminary. He continued graduate studies at Baptist Seminary, Grand Rapids where he received his Master's of Divinity in 1983.

Ministry experience began in the pastorate in 1977. He has served as pastor to three churches and is currently in his 24th year at First Baptist of Anoka.

He personally accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior in July of 1973. He and his wife have a grown son, Michael David.

Associate Pastor of Youth Jim Nicholas grew up in Ravenna, Michigan and attended North Chester Baptist with his family. At the age of 19, Pastor Jim finally surrendered his life to the Lord Jesus Christ and was gloriously saved.  While attending Western Michigan University, he felt God leading him to attend Pillsbury Baptist Bible College of Owatonna, MN where he graduated in 1984 with a B.S.degree. At Pillsbury Pastor Jim met his wife Michele and they were married the same day they both graduated.

God then directed him to attend Central Baptist Theological Seminary in Minneapolis where he graduated in 1990 with the Master of Divinity degree. Pastor Jim came to First Baptist Church in the summer of 1998 where he currently serves as the Associate Pastor of Youth Ministries.  He was ordained at First Baptist in May of 2001.  Pastor Jim and Michele have two wonderful children, Rochelle and Brandon.
