• Stuart sanders  |  senior pastor/ELDER


    Stuart grew up in Waco, TX, and his wife Anna was born and raised in Nacogdoches, TX. They were both brought up in God-fearing homes lead by caring, sacrificial parents. They have been blessed with four children: Mallory, Shane, Daphne and Chloe. They love to play outside together, and swimming is one of their favorite family activities. They also love their traditional “Pizza Movie Night” every Friday. In addition to being with his family, Stuart enjoys reading, sports, and active games such as football, baseball, ping pong, and disc golf. Stuart has a B.A. in Communications from Texas A&M, a M.A. In Theological Studies from Southwestern Seminary, and a Master of Divinity from Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. 



    James and his wife Penny are Southern California natives, but, as the old saying goes, "we weren't born in Texas, but we got here as fast as we could." In 2005, James served vocationally at his home church in Southern California. Then in 2018, the Lord called him and Penny to North Texas. After serving at various churches in the DFW Metroplex, James was privileged to accept the Ministry Director position at Faith Bible Church in McKinney, Texas, in July 2022.

    James has been married to his wife, Penny, since 2009, and they are patiently waiting on the Lord to bless them with children. He enjoys coffee dates with Penny, watching football (GO PACK GO), playing his guitar, smoking meat, and studying theology. James has a B.A. in Liberal Studies with a minor in music theory and composition from California Baptist University and will soon begin the seminary journey toward a Master of Divinity.
