I have served, along with the gracious people, at FBC, Pleasanton, for 38 years through our music and Bible teaching ministries.  I graduated from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Ft Worth in 1980 and prior to that Gardner-Webb University in Boiling Springs, North Carolina. 

My wife, Lisa, serves side by side with me as an intregal part of my life and ministry.  We have 3 adult children:  Michael, a computer analyst for Bryan ISD, Jamie, a middle school teacher in San Marcos & Landon, a student at Texas State preparing to go into law enforcement.

God has greatly blessed us by calling us to be part of this wonderful church family.  We're here to serve, to minister, to equip believers, and to share the gospel with our community and wherever our church sends us to minister in Christ's name.

This is a place where you can grow in grace by discovering your spiritual potential, be encouaged by other believers, and find many opportunities for service.

This is a praying church, a worshipping church, a caring church, and a Bible-based church seeking to spread God's light into every corner of our world.  We welcome you to come visit us and hope you'll join us in our mission of following Christ's command to make disciples wherever we go.




Youth Minister

Brian Avery

In May 2014 God brought my family and me to FBC Pleasanton.  I have served in youth ministry as a minister for almost 14 years.  I have also served as a Sunday School teacher.

The summer after my freshman year in high school, I felt God call me into the ministry.  I am so thankful that He did.  I did not know it as a youth but I am doing my dream job.  I enjoy spending time with students and helping them grow in their relationship with God.  I enjoy teaching them about the Bible and giving them opportunities to serve in the church and in the community.

Since high school, God has blessed me with a wonderful wife, Tammy.  She is my partner in my ministry.  We have been married since 1997.  We have 4 children. Our oldest daughter is a freshman in college.  Our second oldest daughter and only son are in the youth group while our youngest daughter is in elementary.

I am a big sports fan.  My favorite teams are the Chicago Bears, Texas Rangers, Dallas Stars and Dallas Mavericks.   I enjoy playing video games and spending time with my children. My wife and I enjoy going for rides into the country on my motorcycle.
