What a joy it is for me to serve as the pastor of Faith Community Baptist Church. By God's great grace, along with several other precious brothers and sisters in Christ, we started FCBC, December of 1998. I did my graduate work at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary where I received a Master of Divinity degree in which I concentrated in Biblical languages, primarily New Testament Greek. I am currently enrolled again at Southwestern, now in the doctoral program pursing a degree in Historical Theology/Church History with a focus in Baptist studies. My intended area of dissertation study is 18th century English Particular Baptists. I have been blessed for over 26 years being married to my wife, Janice. We have seven wonderful and very busy children: Timothy (now married to Cady and living in Washington state), Katie (a senior music major at Dallas Baptist University), Nathan (a freshman at the College at Southwestern majoring in Humanities), Benjamin, Abigail, Averie, and Bethany.
