SENIOR PASTOR

DR. CHRIS WINFORD

I have been the Senior Pastor at First Baptist Brunswick since August 2014. I unashamedly believe that God has called me, equipped me, and disciplined me for the sole purpose of shepherding His flock as I seek to make His name known to all generations. It is my heart’s desire and vision to shepherd a Christ-centered household of faith that prays the Psalms, lives the Sermon on the Mount, believes in the priesthood of all believers, and passionately embraces the mission of God.

Family

I am married to Angela. We have two beautiful daughters, Abigail and Avery, who are extraordinary in every way.

Hobbies

In my spare time I love to play golf and am slowly learning to appreciate the value of long distance running. I absolutely love cooking with my wife and daughters. I enjoy reading, and watching anything Texas Tech Red Raiders, Dallas Cowboys, Texas Rangers, or the Golf Channel.

Education

B.S. Double Major: Physical Education & Religion, University of Mary Hardin-Baylor in Belton, Texas.

M.Div., Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Ft. Worth, Texas.

D.Min., Beeson Divinity School in Birmingham, Alabama
