Minister of Music and Education | 252-221-4133
I am Justin Smith, Minister of Music and Education at Rocky Hock Baptist Church since August, 2019. I am a native of Rocky Hock and have been blessed to grow up in Rocky Hock Baptist Church. I accepted Christ as my Lord and Savior at the age of 11 and have been pursuing His calling on my life ever since. I graduated from Campbell University with a Bachelor of Arts in Drama and Christian Ministries and minors in Music and Religion. My wife Asheton and I have been married since 2013 and both love serving in ministry together. We both share the love of music and enjoy singing together every chance we get. I have been blessed to serve in various ministry roles at different churches as well as work in our local public-school system teaching music. It is a great honor to serve, not only in the area to which I was raised, but to serve at the church who helped shape me into the Christian I am today!


Administrative Assistant | 252-221-4133
I am Linda B. Bunch, the Administrative Assistant at Rocky Hock Baptist Church. My duties began here in November 2007 and have expanded over the course of these few years to encompass much more than a “secretarial” position. I truly enjoy my work and feel that God has placed me where He wants me to be. Perquimans County is where I grew up, but Rocky Hock has been my home for over 20 years. My husband, Stanley, and I have one son, Joseph, who attends East Carolina University and plays trumpet for the Marching Pirates. As a family, we love camping, boating, fishing, and gardening. It’s a pleasure for me to be able to work in the community where I live, and I look forward to many years of serving our Lord together!
