Just in case you’re wondering, here’s a little about the Pastor……me. I was born in Odessa, TX on October 11,1968. I was raised by great parents Ray and Jerry (Mother Fox). Dad went to be with the Lord and Mom is an Elder in our church. Dad got the better deal. I was raised in the Assemblies of God being saved and filled with the Holy Ghost when I was 6 years old. I began playing piano in church when I was 8 and started preaching when I was 12. When I was 17 we went to the Foursquare Gospel Church in Odessa where I was youth pastor and music minister. I truly loved the Lord all my life and church was my only real passion. There never was anything better than what we used to call “a Pentecostal run-away”. I moved to Dallas when I was 20 and there played piano for Walnut Park Assembly of God in Garland. Then I began to deal with my life without the rose colored glasses. I walked away from God for a period of time until some dear friends invited me to F.O.L.O. At that time I began to reconcile my faith and gain an understanding of who I really was and what the Word of God really said for me. Some years later I stepped in as interim Pastor just to help the church through the resignation of our previous Pastor. Ric Huitt was an incredible teacher and singer and a powerful man of God. I’m very thankful to God that after a year the church voted me in as Pastor. I’ve pastored our church since 1997. I can’t imagine doing anything else. I have a wonderful family. My husband, Chris, is an incredible support. You can find him working the sound booth, teaching Sunday School, and making sure everything is presentable. Our daughters, Jackie, Candace, Janene, and Shanae are always busy in some area of ministry in the church. Jackie graduated from Hardin Simmons University in Abilene. She is a beautiful young woman of God. Our daughter, Candace and Son-in-law, Kendell have blessed us with our grandchildren, Brooklyn, Brayden, and Bryce. Janene and Samir blessed us with our granddaughters Samantha and Shiloh. Shanae is our Youth Pastor and a powerful preacher. She and her husband Antonio are busy with the church and our grandkids, Antonio Jr, China, and Dorian. Our son Ethan can't be missed. He's the little guy singing to top of his lungs and jumping and dancing all through service. We recently have added a member to our family. River is our 13 year old son. In case you're counting, that's 7 kids and 9 grandchildren. We have been truly blessed with our family! Not just my blood family, but my FOLO family.
If you don’t have a church home, come be a part of ours. We and our F.O.L.O. partners would love to welcome you to our family.
