Hello there friend!  I am Dwight Turbett, Pastor of the First Baptist Church here in Hillsdale, Wisconsin.  I have been the Pastor here for the past 8 years.  I was born into a missionary family who served in Ecuador, South America and who also served in pastoral ministry upon their return to Minnesota from the mission field.  I attended Pillsbury Baptist Bible College in Owatonna, MN from 1965-1969 following my high school graduation.  Then in 1969 I continued my theological and ministry education at Central Baptist Theological Seminary of Minneapolis, MN.  I have been involved in pastoral ministry since my seminary graduation in 1974 with a Master of Divinity Degree.

My wife Cheryl is also a graduate of Pillsbury College and has been my loving companion in pastoral ministry through the years, as well as having taught in the elementary level of 3 different Christian Schools.  She has also been fully active with ladies ministries and our church music ministry through the years, both vocally and as a church pianist.

We reared a family of 3 children in our years of ministry and they now are fully grown with their own families, which have blessed us with 10 enjoyable grandchildren.

I sincerely desire to be an encouragement and help to folks with whom we have contact with in our ministries here at First Baptist Church.  I invite you to visit and I sincerely desire to be of help to you to meet Jesus Christ as your personal Savior.  I would consider it a privilege to be of any spiritual counsel, should you desire help in this area.
