OUR STAFF

I was called to preach the gospel in 1973 and called to my first church in 1976. God has faithfully led me on a marvelous journey of ministry that has allowed me to serve in Kentucky, Tennessee, New Mexico, Colorado and now in Arizona. I look forward to serving FBC Sun City as long as God gives strength to serve. I have been married to Carolyn since 1971 and she has always been a great ministry partner. We have 2 adult sons, 2 daughter-in-laws, and 9 grandchildren.

Bobby Alldis

Associate Pastor

I am from San Diego, California and I have been married to Cheryl for 20 years. We have four children and two grandchildren. Ever since I was saved, I have been in some capacity of ministry. I have served in children’s ministry, youth ministry, marriage ministry, men’s ministry, and music ministry. I am a graduate of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky where I earned a Masters of Divinity in Christian Ministry. I have pastored two churches in Kentucky and Montana before coming to First Baptist Church Sun City. We are avid sports fans and we both love the San Diego Padres and the Green Bay Packers. I love to golf and read the Puritans.

Jim Trenbeath

Music Minister

I was born in Kenya, Africa, where my parents were missionaries. My grade school years were spent in southern Texas where my parents were transferred to work with Hispanics on the Mexican Border. During my high school years, we moved to Arizona, where my parents worked with American Indians.

In the third grade, I made a personal decision to follow Jesus Christ while attending summer camp. Growing up around ministry all my life, I love to preach and teach God’s Word and to lead God’s people into God’s presence through music and worship.

I graduated with a degree in Christian ministry and church music from Asbury 
College in Wilmore, Kentucky, and have served various churches in Kentucky and Arizona for over 40 years.

I have been married to my lovely wife, Dorothy, for 38 years. Dorothy is a gifted vocalist and accompanist, and it is a joy to lead worship together. We have been blessed with two children, Rachel and David. Rachel and her husband Chad and three children—Madeleine, Lucy and Henri—live in Portland, Oregon, where Chad pastors First Evangelical Covenant Church of Portand. David and his wife Keila and their three boys—Levi, Isaiah and Ezra—live here in Arizona where David works for Arizona Baptist Children’s Services and Family Ministries.

In addition to serving in ministry, we run our own business teaching music. We call our business WeMakeMusicFun.com. We have taught hundreds of students through the years—mainly on piano, voice, and guitar—but we enjoy all kinds of instruments and all styles of music.

When I’m not preaching, teaching or singing, I enjoy reading a good book or exploring Arizona with Dorothy. I like nothing better than sitting on top of a mountain and watching an eagle ride the wind currents above a forest of Ponderosa pines.

Bob & Rhonda Besco

Children's Ministry

We joined FBC Sun City in 2008, and we have been serving in Children's Ministry since 2015. We've been on a mission with God in the U.S. and around the world, being privileged to live on three continents, one island, and in six different countries. Bob has taught ESL to multiple language groups and has served as Youth Pastor, Industrial Chaplain and as a missionary. Bob is a home cook influenced by his love for Chinese style cuisine, and Rhonda is a lover of animals. We have been married since December of 1977, and we have two married adult sons, and 3 bilingual grandchildren. Our vision is to encourage people to Know Christ, Grow in Relation to Christ, and Show Christ in their daily walk.

April Miles

Administrative Assistant

My husband and I relocated from Asheville, NC to Glendale, AZ in 2006 after following God's call on our lives to do ministry on the West Coast. Our desire at the time was to move to Indianapolis to plant a church with our former pastor, but we firmly felt the Lord tell us that Indiana was not our call. Since we have been in Arizona, we have served in various ministries such as our home church, where my husband serves as the Pastor of Worship and Formation,  as well as assisting chapels with NASCAR, and various events for eating disorder recovery. Our primary ministry is the ministry of our home.  We have three small children, one big, goofy dog, and a vegetable garden.  I feel very blessed to serve the people of First Baptist Church of Sun City!
