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.

He married his high school sweetheart, Carolyn Murphree. He began coaching and teaching, which took him to Plainview High School, Muleshoe High School, and Snyder High School. He had earned his masters degree in mid-management at West Texas State University, and at Petersburg High School, he began his career as a principal. In 1992, an opportunity presented itself to move back home to Friona after being gone from the community for 19 years. He and his family have lived here since that time.

Friona has been my hometown since 1963 when my family and I moved here from Plainview.  I have grown up in First Baptist Church.  This is where I grew spiritually as a teenager, later married my high school sweetheart, and we raised our three children.  Chad and his wife Autumn and their son Caleb, 5 months, live in Amarillo where he works for UPS and she is a Physician Assistant.  Kris, her husband Scott and their two sons Carson, 8 and Layton, 4 1/2 live in Amarillo where he works for Valero Gas Company and she is a very busy stay at home mom.  Cory and his wife Laura also live in Amarillo where he is the head baseball coach at Randall High School and teaches US History and she is a Financial Planner.  I was the secretary for Friona High School for 25 years and enjoyed all those years of great kids and wonderful staff.  But, life brings unexpected changes and I am so thankful God is there to see you through.  He knows what is best for you before you do.  I retired from FHS in December of 2004 and two months later became the secretary for First Baptist Church.  I have been in this position for 9 years and feel as if God just picked me out to be His secretary.  I love this church and my church family.  I pray that in this position I might serve the Lord daily and be a witness for Him in all that I do.
