“Whatever our career may be, true leadership means to receive power from God and to use it under God’s rule to serve people in God’s way.” – Leighton Ford

It is my great joy to be one of the pastors of the Park Cities Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas- . I love the Church and I love my church. I am passionate about seeing a church that is aligned with the mission of Jesus. I believe the Church Jesus envisioned is one that is devoted to bringing hope and healing to the city and to the world- for the common good of all the people.

My calling as a pastor is to shepherd God’s people- to care for and guide the flock.  I’m humbled as I think of Jesus, “the Good Shepherd”, as my Guide and Example. Jesus taught us how to serve others by humbling Himself and we are called to do the same.  Too often in American churches we see pastoral leadership more closely aligned to an American corporate model than a biblical one.  Pastors are not professionals; we are shepherds.`

I love serving with our amazing team of ministers (in the colonias of South Texas above) and our amazing volunteers who love Jesus and love others so well. It is a great joy to serve at and through the Park Cities Baptist Church and to serve alongside our amazing partners and churches in the Dallas area and around the world.
