Our Pastor

Dylan Smith –

Please join us in congratulating Dylan Smith on being the new pastor of Cedar Hill FreeWill Baptist Church in Asheville, NC.

On December 3, we entered a chapter as pastor of Cedar Hill Free Will Baptist Church in Asheville, NC. I was saved at the age of 8 years old during vacation Bible school at my childhood church in Morganton, North Carolina. My wife and I have been members and youth leaders at Nowlings Chapel Free Will Baptist Church for the last 5 years. In December of 2020, I answered the call to preach the Word of God at my home church Nowlings Chapel Free Will Baptist Church, and God has been using me since to spread the Gospel. My wife, Jessica Smith, is the daughter of Rev Darvy and Angie Hensley. We both originate from Morganton, NC.My wife works as a registered nurse supervisor for Atrium Health at Home. We have two children of the home, Madelyn and Greyson, and we are expecting our third, Miss Lily, to arrive in March 2024. The Lord has guided us to Cedar Hill and God has blessed us with an opportunity to begin a new journey in Him doing His work. I plan to further my education at one of the supported Bible colleges to expand my knowledge on my pastoral ministry. We ask that you pray for our family in doing God’s will.
