Meet the Pastor
Pastor Dennis Cariker
 
Dennis Cariker started Heartland Free Will Baptist Church as a home missions church plant. The church moved into its own newly built facility in the spring of 2003. Dennis has previously served in several other churches, including pastoring churches in Spencer, OK and Sunnyvale, CA. Dennis earned his Bachelors of Theology from Hillsdale Free Will Baptist College in Moore, OK (now Randall University) and his Masters in Human Relations from the University of Oklahoma. Dennis is known for always having a good joke and for his generosity with everyone he meets.
