Pastor Jeff Schreve and Family

Jeff's core message throughout all of his preaching is this: No matter how much you may have messed up in life, God still loves you and has a wonderful plan for you. This positive message of redemption and grace is compelling many into a genuine life-experience with the living God through Jesus Christ.

The truth of the Bible is central to his ministry. Jeff is passionate about introducing Christ to those who feel hopeless, helpless and think God is out of reach for them. He believes it is a shame for a preacher to be boring. His 'user-friendly,' engaging, personal stories that are relevant, and humor bring these lessons alive for those listening. They are also filled with honesty, truthfulness and compassion that touches hearts and changes lives with life-giving principles for everyday living and eternal glory.
Pastor Jeff is a graduate of The University of Texas at Austin (1984) with a degree in Business Administration. After twelve years in sales, God called Jeff to preach. He has an MDIV degree from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and is about to complete his Doctor of Ministry degree there this year. He served as Pastor of Membership and Missions at Champion Forest Baptist Church in Houston, TX from 1997 to 2003 before being called to First Baptist Texarkana as Senior Pastor in February of 2003.
Since then, God has blessed FBC with rapid and sustained growth, great energy, excitement, andspiritual transformation. FBC began a local church TV broadcast in 1958 and was honored at theannual National Religious Broadcasters convention in Nashville in 2010 with the Milestone Award for 50 years of continuous TV broadcasting of the Gospel. From that local broadcast foundation, Jeff launched his national non-profit outreach called From His Heart taking the good news through television and now radio and the internet to the world.

The Great Commission: Matthew 28:16-20
"Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had appointed for them. When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some doubted. And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Amen
