Student Life Staff

Brandon Fritz: Dean of Students
I graduated from the University of Iowa with a Secondary Science Education degree. I then completed master’s degrees from Olivet Nazarene University and Montana State University. My wife, Natalie, and I lived in Williamsburg, Iowa for seventeen years serving at Harvest Baptist Church. We served with the youth, college, and young marrieds ministries. I’m currently serving as FBBC’s Dean of Students, Adjunct Science Professor, Women’s Soccer Coach and the Strength and Conditioning Coordinator. My vision and burden is discipleship and training young men and women to use their skill sets to be ambassadors for Christ in the various fields God has placed them in. My wife and I live in Ankeny along with our eight children, Karina, Kierstan, Eliana, Mirelli, Silas, Tyrza, Titus and Apollos. We attend Community Baptist Church, and I enjoy spending time with my family, spending time outdoors, personal fitness training, reading, and fellowship with other believers. Contact me here.

Sandy Capon: Dean of Women
After coming to Christ for salvation in 1983 at the age of 26, my husband, Tim, and I responded to God’s call to the gospel ministry. Tim left his profession as a civil engineer to train for the pastoral ministry at Faith Baptist Bible College. I began homeschooling our three children, worked alongside my husband in ministry, and actively involved the kids in every way we could. I served the Lord as a pastor’s wife for over 28 years, 5 years in South Des Moines, and then over 23 years at Faith Baptist Church in Carroll. Most recently, in May of 2014, the Lord directed us to a new ministry. Tim now serves as the IARBC State Representative, and now we live in Ankeny. God has blessed us with over 40 years of marriage, 3 children, two sons-in-law, a daughter-in-law and 9 grandchildren. I enjoy cooking, camping, hiking, biking, and turkey hunting with my husband. I had the opportunity to get to know Faith while working in the FBBC Bookstore. While working there, I had been praying for the God to give me more opportunities to disciple women, and God provided! I am excited to connect and serve the students here at Faith. Contact me here.

Rachel Palma: Assistant Dean of Women
I joined the Student Life staff in 2014 as the Administrative Assistant. I earned the B.S. degree from Faith Baptist Bible College. I love working with the student body and desire to help them in their transition to college life. It is truly a blessing to minister to our students on a daily basis, and I love seeing how the Lord works in their lives to conform them more into the image of His Son. Our students are also a great encouragement to me—they love the Lord and desire to serve Him on campus, in our community, and around the world. We really have the best students! Contact me here.

Charlie Carter: Assistant Dean of Men
I grew up in Williamsburg, Iowa. I was saved when I was 16 years old and was led to pursue ministry right away. I attended Faith Baptist Bible College and Theological Seminary from 2010-2017, earning a pastoral degree from the college and a Master of Divinity from the seminary. In August of 2015, I accepted a call from Harvest Baptist Church in Williamsburg to be their associate pastor. I enjoy hunting and fishing, Iowa Hawkeye sports, and board games with friends!
