“Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.”

– Galatians 6:2


I call upon each church, pastor and servant leader to spend time today in prayer for one another, especially our pastors and their families who for some are dealing with sickness, injury and heartache. Thank you.


On Sunday, I was blessed to worship and preach at East Lake Fellowship Church in Burnet followed by a wonderful lunch with the deacons and their wives as the church begins their search for a new pastor. It was a wonderful time of fellowship. This past week, we served several of our area churches with their Vacation Bible School and Camp Planning while providing numerous background checks and ministry safe trainings. This week, we continue to minister to our area churches in outreach opportunities, new church start assistance, pulpit supply and search committee resources. This Sunday on Father’s Day, I will be worshipping and singing at Fairy Baptist Church. I will also be blessed to have two of my grandchildren with me this week. The Retreat Center was blessed to host a Family Retreat and this past weekend and this weekend we are hosting a Hispanic Church men’s retreat.  


It is our joy to serve all our area churches in meeting the various needs of the church and its leadership. We are honored to be serving each church as we together serve our Lord in sharing the message of Salvation to each community. Your faithful financial support allows every church to have their ministry needs met so they can be more effective in reaching their community for the Lord. We are all One Church located in over 100 Locations serving and working Together in Ministry and in our Calling to deliver the Message of Christ Love to all.  


Please reach out to us with your ministry needs

as we are available to serve you 24/7. 

We are a “Brotherhood of Churches”.

Hello everyone, I pray you all had a blessed week! Please take a moment to pray for your brothers and sisters in Christ as we fulfill the Great Commission together. It's all about Jesus! (Matthew 28:19-20, Ephesians 4:11-13)

This past Sunday, I attended FBC Streetman while visiting family. Friday, I led worship with friends at the FCA Senior Basketball Tournament.

This coming Sunday, I will be preaching and leading worship at FBC Kempner. I will be in and out of the Area Office throughout the week. Tuesday, I will be attending a watch party for the SBC Annual Meeting at the Retreat Center.

 I am available to assist any of our area churches who need a guest preacher, worship leader, or musician, and I am available to give sound, video, and media consultations and assistance.

 If you or someone you know is a Musician, Worship Leader, or Local Church Missionary, we encourage you to serve in our area Churches. If you feel led to serve in this area, please contact your Area Office at or 432-202-1526.

I am here to serve you and your church and look forward to meeting you as my wife Josalyne and I travel around the Tri-Rivers Baptist Area.

Hello, I'd like to share about our ministry so that congregations will know what we do and where to send those who need our help. We serve Coryell, Hamilton, Bosque, Lampasas, Bell, & McLennan counties.   

I am willing to meet with pastors, elders, mission teams, or congregations. I can do a quick 5 minute spill or I can do an entire testimony. I'd also be willing to share a song or two if needed. I'm completely willing to accommodate whatever the churches needs are.
