Meet the Pastor

Rev. Jeff Garrett

Reverend Jeff Garrett

He was born feisty in 1964, raised in Garland, and ethnically is a European mutt but gravitates toward his Scottish heritage. He played soccer (futbol) before it was cool, and surrendered to Jesus in 1973. Jeff graduated UT Austin and was called to ministry in 1986. He’s a classic rocker but listens to all sorts of music, and loves to drive v-8’s with stick shifts. After spending 3 years as youth pastor in Dallas, he married out of his league in 1988, graduated Asbury Theological Seminary in 1992 and became an ordained elder in 1994. He is moved by the authority and power of God’s Word, and loves bringing it to life.

Jeff loves good worship, fights with electronic gadgets (grrrrr), and wools on the family’s two slobbery Boxer dogs. He’s strategic yet creative, a futurist and lifelong learner… also a lifelong Batman fan! He has spent 25 years pastoring in North Texas, and finds life and church at their best when they are both fun and meaningful. He loves his 4 children (2 in careers, 2 in college), is crazy in love with his wife, Cindi, and absolutely loves hearing, “you don’t look like a preacher!”
