Darrell Edwards became our pastor in 2015. A native of Oklahoma, he has served in church ministry since 1986.  Darrell and Ange, his wife of over 30 years, are the parents of six wonderful children, three of which are still in the home and preteens (so pray for them!); Jakobi (13), Ashton (12) and Langley (11).  Ange has worked in the child protective services field for over 15 years.
 
They are also grandparents to Abby Kaelyn Fox (2009), Kason James Fox (2010), Annie Kaydence Fox (2015) and Alexandria (Aly) Mae Edwards (2014).
 
Darrell's hobbies include sports, hunting, reading and enjoying his family.
 
Pastor Darrell's calling is to preach and teach the whole counsel of God; to call sinners to repentance; to motivate God's people to worship Him personally and corporately; to equip the people of God to do the work of ministry; to help build strong families and community all according to Ephesians 4:15 "speaking the truth in love."
 
His favorite Bible verse is Psalm 115:3 "Our God is in the Heavens; He does all that He pleases."
 
Darrell's favorite sports teams are the Dallas Cowboys, the Texas Rangers, but also and unfortunately the Oklahoma Sooners.  Maybe we can learn to forgive him on this one.
...Oh, and of course any his children or grandkids may be playing on!

Juan A. Briseño y su esposa Janet tienen un hijo, John Anthony. En el último año del Colegio fue invitado asistir a la Primera Iglesia Bautista de Mission, Texas e hizo una decision de fé y por emoción por miedo de ir directamente al infierno pero su vida siguió igual. Despues de asistir el segundo semestre del Colegio, Juan se enfrentó con muchos problemas. Cada puerta se iba cerrando. (Un día en su cuarto comenzo a llorar, no sabiendo que hacer). En este momento de deseperación miró un libro negro lleno de polvo (La Santa Biblia) que había recibido como un regalo. Abriéndolo por primera vez en San Mateo 6:33 “Mas busca primeramente el reino de Dios y su justicia, y todas estas cosas os serán añadidas.”, el Espíritu Santo lo llevó al convencimiento que estaba perdido, El se arrodilló e hizo la oración del pecador:

-"Amantísimo Señor, yo sé que soy un pecador y merezco irme al infierno. Yo creo que Jesus murió en la cruz por mis pecados. Te acepto como mi Señor y te recibo como mi Salvador. Te prometo de servirte lo mejor de mis habilidades. Por favor sálvame en el nombre de Jesús, Amén".

Despues de su graduación del Colegio, vino a la área metropolitana de Dallas para una oferta de trabajo. El se hizo miembro de la Iglesia Fuente de Vida en Richardson, Texas y estuvo ahí por 6 años (1989-1995). El Comenzó a enseñar en la escuela dominical para jóvenes e iglesia de niños. Juan fue ordenado al ministerio por: Fuente de Vida, una Misión de Richardson Heights. El sirvió como presidente de los solteros en la Asociación de Dallas, representando 55 iglesias (1991 y 1992). Sus reponsabilidades eran organizar compañerismos mensualmente, seminarios, retiros, torneos de volleyball, veladas y cruzadas para alcanzar pandillas y a enseñar a los jovenes y solteros como vencer las tentaciones, temores, drogas, etc. Juan y su esposa Janet despues se hicieron miembros en la Primera Iglesia Bautista de Sachse, Texas y estuvo ahí 6 años (1995-2001). El comenzó a enseñar la Escuela Dominical en español. Juan ahora es miembro de la Iglesia Bautista Cornerstone como Pastor Hispano.

English Translation

Juan A. Briseño and his wife Janet have a son, (John Anthony). On the last year at Mission High School, Juan got invited to attend First Baptist Church of Mission, Texas and made a decision by feeling, and fear for going straight to hell but his life continued the same. After attending second semester in College, Juan was facing many problems. Every door was closing. (One day in his room crying out, not knowing what to do). In this moment of desperation he saw a black dusty book (Holy Bible) that he received like a gift by opening the first time in Matthew 6:33 “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

God’s Holy Spirit convicted him that he was lost. He knelled down and prayed the sinner’s prayer:

"Heavenly Father, I know that I am a sinner and that I deserve to go to hell. I believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross for my sins. I do now receive him as my Lord and personal Savior. I promise to serve you to the best of my ability. Please save me. In Jesus’ name, Amen."

After graduation from College, came to the Dallas Metroplex for a job offer. He became a member of Iglesia Bautista Fuente de Vida at Richardson, Texas for 6 years (1989-1995). He taught Youth Sunday school and Children’s Church. Juan was ordained to the ministry by: Fuente de Vida a Hispanic Mission of Richardson Heights. He has served as President of Dallas Hispanic Singles Association, representing 55 churches (1991 & 1992). His responsibilities were organizing rallies each month, seminars, retreats, volleyball tournaments, lock-in and city-wide crusades in order to reach gang members and teaching youth/singles how to overcome fears, drugs, peer-pressure, abortion, etc. Juan and his wife later became members of First Baptist Church at Sachse, Texas for 6 years (1995-2001). He taught Spanish Sunday School Class. Juan is now a member of Cornerstone Baptist Church as the Hispanic Pastor.
