Meet Our Staff
Terry L. Fortner
We are blessed to have had Brother Terry leading our congregation since 2011. He serves as our Senior Pastor and is the primary Teaching Pastor for our body. His commitment is to lead our church family into deeper relationship with Jesus Christ through discipleship and the exciting application of God's word in all our lives for the purpose of learning to live the abundant life Jesus has promised us! (John 10:10)
Brother Terry is a committed husband to his wife, Lisa, and father to his four children, Jessica, Rachel, Josh, and Rebecca. He answered Christ's call on his life as a Senior at Sylvan Hills High School, where he graduated in 1979. He earned his BA from Ouachita Baptist University in 1983 and graduated from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in 1989 with a Masters of Divinity degree.
Prior to joining our staff, Terry served for 21 years as a pastor to other Southern Baptist churches, as well as having spent over 2 years working in the home mission field as a church planter in New York.
Brother Brandon serves as our Associate Pastor and plays several roles in the life of our church. His passion in life is trying to share the message of Christ while showing the love of Christ through the work he does in ministry.

He also functions as our Small Group coordinator and Missions Facilitator, assisting our church to engage and impact the world around us with the love of Christ.
