I am so thankful that God has brought me to serve as the pastor at FBC Friona.  I grew up on the family farm in Colorado City, Texas, about 1 ½ hours south of Lubbock, with a wonderful family who loves the Lord.  When I was in 3rd grade I was saved, and that is the best day in my life.  Growing up, I was active working on the farm, being involved in church and playing many sports.  After High School I went to West Texas A&M University where I played baseball a couple of years, received a B.A. in History and gave Lindsey Anne Criswell a “Mrs.” Degree.  Lindsey and I were married on December 14, 2002.  During the time in college and shortly thereafter God affirmed His call on my life to enter full time ministry.  Shortly after marriage I served as the student pastor at First Baptist Church in Claude for about three wonderful years.  While there, I began taking online courses from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky, and in 2006 we moved to Louisville, Kentucky so I could attend the Seminary.  In Kentucky I served as Youth Pastor at Eastern Gate Baptist Church in Shepherdsville, Kentucky, as well as work for UPS for three years. 

God has also blessed me with an amazing wife and children.  Our children are Matt born September 9, 2005, Seth born, November 13, 2007, Jake, born August 31, 2009 and Hannah, born October 1, 2012.

                About a year before coming to FBC I learned of their need for a pastor and from there God began to work toward bringing my family to Friona.  FBC is a congregation that loves the Lord, one another and the world around them.  I am excited to lead such a wonderful congregation and look forward to all that the Lord has in store for FBC.  I pray that God will use His church in Friona to not only make an impact in Friona, but also on the world.  To God be the glory.
