Clint Ritchie

Bio: Clint Ritchie was blessed to be raised in a Christian home, the son of a Baptist deacon, and was saved at the age of nine while attending Vacation Bible School. He surrendered to the ministry at the age of thirteen and has been serving on church staff since a sophomore in high school and sixteen years old. His entire life has been spent in various parts of Arkansas. Clint met Jennifer Warren on a blind date in August 2002, and they married on May 22, 2004. Clint and Jennifer have been blessed with two daughters: Addison and Whitley. Clint is a graduate of Williams Baptist College with a Bachelor of Arts in Christian Ministry. He also holds a Master of Divinity from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and a Doctor of Ministry from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. Clint is the author of "Rebuilding the Family Altar," a book that originated from his doctoral work on family worship disciplines. After six years in student ministry, Clint has spent the past twelve years in pastoral ministry. He served as pastor of Swifton Baptist Church in Swifton, Arkansas, from November 2001 to May 2007. For the past seven years, Clint has served as pastor of First Baptist Church in Hampton, Arkansas. Missions, evangelism, discipleship, and community ministries characterize Clint’s pastoral ministry. The churches he has pastored have sponsored new church starts in North America, and he has lead a network of Arkansas churches to adopt a people group in Chile, where Clint has lead a group each of the past five years. Clint has been active in Southern Baptist life, serving on the Executive Board of the Arkansas Baptist State Convention, the Nominating Committee of the Arkansas Baptist State Convention, the Credentials Committee of the Southern Baptist Convention, as well as numerous association leadership positions. He has also served actively in the community as a police chaplain and as president of the local ministerial alliance. Clint enjoys fishing and hunting, but most of his spare time is spent with his family, often following the girls to their latest beauty pageant or dance recital. He does find time to cheer for the Arkansas Razorbacks, as well as suffer through seasons with the Dallas Cowboys and Chicago Cubs.
