Our Church Staff

Our Church thrives because of the energy and style of the people who are a part of our leadership. Here are a few of the people that make our church community special:



Cody Fitzgerald - Minister of Students

Cody, his wife Christian , came to FBC Winona in September of 2017. Cody is currently studying at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. Cody leads our ministry to students grade 6-12. He has a passion for God's Word and for making disciples.





Curtis Wilson - Minister of Music


Curtis Wilson and his wife, Patti, joined us in June 2022. They have been married since 3 July 1976. They have five adult children, and eight grandchildren, all of which are scattered across a good chunk of the United States.

The Wilsons have served various roles within churches across Texas, into New Mexico, and, for a season, in West Germany. Patti has led Girls in Action and Acteens, including having mentored a National Acteen. She is also a certified Commander for the AWANA program. Curtis has been a worship pastor, minister of music, youth minister, senior pastor, Sunday School director, finance officer, and has served twice as the Clerk for the Del Rio – Uvalde Baptist Association.

Curtis is a disabled veteran. He was wounded by a .50 caliber projectile while serving in the US Army. It was while in the service that Curtis had a deep encounter with Jesus Christ. It was this encounter that Curtis credits his survival of the accident by which he was wounded.

Curtis has attended numerous colleges and has multiple degrees. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in Business Management and a Bachelor of Science in Accounting from Texas Lutheran University, as well as a Master of Arts in Worship Studies from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary and Graduate School.

Curtis has numerous musical credits and accomplishments. He has been a featured soloist for the Singing Men of East Texas, South Texas, and West Texas. He has also been a soloist for the Central Texas Mastersingers, the Baumholder Musik Werks, Howard Payne University, and was the solo presenter of the National Anthem at the 1994 Sun Bowl Football Classic. In 2016, the Head of the Choral Department at North Texas State University identified Curtis as “the man with the golden voice.”

It is Curtis’ deepest desire that all peoples might worship God. He identifies his calling as being one who both leads and teaches others in worship. His goal is to help others understand what worship truly is and become better worshippers. His core definition of worship is this: Worship is Man’s response to an encounter with the Living God.

Ask Curtis sometime, “Which came first – worship or evangelism?” You may be surprised at the answer.
