Church Body

The church is not a building made with stone. It is a building made with living flesh. We believers are living stones in God’s temple (1 Pet. 2:5), and when we come together we constitute a place of worship where God manifests Himself in ways that He cannot manifest Himself when we are alone. Believers become the living temple of God, offering to Him spiritual sacrifices not possible anywhere other than in the assembly of the redeemed church. -- John MacArthur

David Azam - Pastor

I was raised in Denver City Tx, and graduated from High School in 1995. I graduated from Texas Tech University in May of 2000, with a B.A. in History, and then pursued a career as a teacher/coach. Following my call to ministry I moved back to Denver City and served as Youth Pastor at First Baptist for 9 years. During that time I earned a Masters of Divinity degree from Logsdon Theological Seminary, as well as a Masters in Christian Ministry degree from Wayland Baptist University. My wife and I have a son, Brady, who was born June 30th, 2008, and a daughter, Ella who was born March 4th, 2010. My family and I are so excited to be in Olton, and I am truly honored to serve as your pastor.

Craig Woody - Student Pastor

I am so overjoyed to a part of the ministry team here at First Baptist. My single greatest desire is to see the next generation find their role in the Church and make Kingdom changes by being a witness to the world. I am married to my lovely wife Katie who is my greatest support and partner in ministry. I grew up in Vernon, TX which is where I felt the calling to go into full time ministry. I followed that up by attending Wayland Baptist University in Plainview and recieved a Bachelor of Arts in Youth Ministry and I am currently working on a Masters of Divinity through Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary. We are so happy to be here in Olton and look forward to serving alongside this Church to raise up the young people of our town to be radical disciples.

Travis McCullough - Music Minister

I grew up in New Deal, TX and graduated from New Deal High School in 2002. I attended Wayland Baptist University where I participated in the marching band and jazz band. I graduated from Wayland in 2006 with a B.A. in Instrumental Music Education. I met my wife Kathleen while in college and we married in 2007. On March 2, 2009, our energetic son Josiah Thomas was born. In the fall of 2010, I became the head director of the Olton Mustang Band at Olton High School. We not only quickly fell in love with Olton, but with First Baptist as well. My wife and I have prayed for years for the Lord to lead us to a church body where we can minister and serve, and we have found that at First Baptist Olton. I am excited to see how the Lord will use my talents to bring glory to His name. We love the church family we have found at First Baptist Church and I am honored to serve as your music minister.

I have always been a small town girl. I lived in Lockney for the first 14 years of my life, and then I moved to Olton and I immediately fell in love with the people here!! I have never lived in a more loving and caring community. I graduated from Olton High School in 1989.

I have been married to Jimmy Morris for almost 25 years. We have been blessed with 3 wonderful children. Our oldest , Trevor, works at Premiere Cinema in Lubbock. Our daughter Bethany is married to Dillon DeBerry. They have blessed us with 2 grandbabies. Conner Wade was born on February 9, 2011 and Hudson Joe was born on July 23, 2012. Dillon is a farmer here in Olton and Bethany is a stay at home wife and mommy. Our youngest, Garret, lives in Lubbock where he is attending SPC. He also works at the Stars and Stripes Drive-In.
