Dr. Harry Lucenay
A native Texan, Dr. Harry Lucenay graduated from Baylor University and holds advance degrees from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. He has served as senior pastor of churches in Texas, Mississippi, and Hong Kong for fifty years. His ministry has included international mission work, church growth, and seminary instruction. During his pastorate of the Kowloon International Baptist Church, Hong Kong, the congregation led in the development of the Baptist World Alliance-KIBC Evangelism Award to encourage congregations to become innovative in sharing the gospel with people of different worldviews.
From the most ancient times, the musicians were out front, leading the way. Each Sunday morning, our music leads the way to worship, as we “Make a joyful noise unto the Lord”! Our music program leads us and prepares our hearts to hear the morning Biblical message that our Pastor, Dr. Gaines brings to us each Sunday.
Our music is led each week by our Worship Choir and Praise Team, along with our talented accompanists. Our worship style is more of a blended style, merging contemporary praise and worship songs with the traditional hymns and classics.
My name is Sam Reed, and I am the Student Pastor here at First Baptist. Here is a little info about myself. I recently graduated from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary at Liberty University. I received my graduate degree as a Masters of Arts in Theological Studies. Prior to my graduate degree, I studied four years at North Georgia University and obtained a Business Management degree with a Leadership Minor.
I have been involved with ministry and student ministry for many years. I announced my call into the ministry at the age of 15, and have had the privilege of preaching and serving in churches all over the south. I believe that through these experiences, Christ developed within me a deep passion for Student Ministry. I am here to serve your son/daughter and also your family. My hope and prayer is that through my ministry, I can help show your teenager the hope, peace, love, and joy that is found ony in Jesus Christ. Our purpose in Elevate Ministries is to create a place that is fun and inviting for teenagers to come and fellowship, but most importantly, deepen their relationship with Jesus Christ.
Our church provides a comfortable, safe, and loving environment for your family to encounter God together, and as individuals. Come check us out. We’ll welcome you with open arms.
