Sam Murphy has been the pastor of Family Bible Church for 10 years. His heart and love for people is evident through his ministry in the church, as well as in his everyday life. 


In March of 2017, Sam experienced a heart attack while working out at the gym (he finished his set though). For pastor appreciation, we put together a 5k walk/run event to raise money to donate to the American Heart Association in Sam’s name.
