BILLY CROCKER  (11-13-13)
1490 FM 250 N / Hughes Springs TX 75656 / 903-374-1008 / billy.crocker@outlook.com
I am 26 years old and married to my wife, Mollie for 5 years on November 22nd, and we have a 3 year old son, Tucker. I surrendered to the ministry when I was 15 years old, and on November 21st 2004 I was licensed to preach through Cross Roads Missionary Baptist Church of Hughes Springs, Texas, under the leadership of Pastor, Dr. Daniel McGuire. When I was 17 I went to TBI for about a year and served as the Youth Pastor for Zion Hill MBC in Henderson, TX. Very quickly I realized my immaturity and found God leading me to the military. On October 3, 2006 I joined the US Air Force as an enlisted member, and had opportunity after opportunity to serve God in Ministry while I was in the military. I served as the Protestant Youth Coordinator at Malmstrom AFB in Montana; I was a lay minister for an A.B.A. church in Great Falls, Montana; I Pastored a service during my last deployment for approximately 5 months. I have preached all over and in multiple countries. After 6 years and 9 months in the service I honorably separated and have moved my family and I back to East Texas. We are currently living in Hughes Springs and are praying for the Lord's will in our lives. We know that God has called me into the ministry to preach His Gospel, and to Pastor one of His New Testament Churches. Even though I am only 26 I know that my experiences like two deployments to Iraq and constantly moving and leading in ministry in several different challenging settings that I have experiences that most my age do not. We as a family are ready to move forward in the next step in this ministry and are ready to accept a call to Pastor, to be an Associate Pastor, or even to Youth Pastor if that's what God's will is for us. I am also more than willing to come and speak for fill-in, youth lock-ins, revivals, men's ministries, etc.

I am 39 years old. I am originally from Bogalusa LA. I was saved at the age 24 (1999) after attending a revival at my uncle's church. I married my one and only wife, Shantelle Duncan, in 2003 at the age of 29. I surrendered to preach in our small church, Freedom Missionary Baptist Church, at the end of 2007. We had our first child, Maithan Wesley, in 2009 and then our daughter, Annelise Christian, in 2011. I answered God's call to pastor and began pastoring a church in Arkansas in October of 2011. We were there for 1 1/2 years before God moved us to a very small church in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. I feel that God is calling us back to the southern states. We are ready to make that move when God leads us to the church he has prepared for us. I have been bi-vocational at both of the churches I have pastored. Feel free to contact us if God so leads. We are willing to travel so distance is not an issue.
