Patrick Herring - Senior Pastor
George Halley - Associate Pastor
Pastor Pat knew the Lord and knew God's calling on his life very early on. He accepted the Lord Jesus as personal Savior when he was 6 and accepted the call to full-time ministry when he was 13 years old. In pursuing the Lord's call on his life he graduated with a B.A. from East Carolina University in 1977 and with a Master of Divinity from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, in Wake Forest, NC, in 1981. After graduation he served as an Associate Pastor from 1982 to 1985 and spent the next 20 years faithfully serving God and country as an Air Force Chaplain. As a Chaplain, Pastor Pat worked with individuals and families and is a "people person". He is "a conservative, Bible believing, Bible preaching minister who believes that God is the same now as He has been since creation : a powerful, just, loving, and forgiving God". Pastor Pat has been with us since January 2005. He and June have two daughters and 4 grandchildren who reside in California. His hobbies are "music and grandkids."
Our beloved Pastor George went to be with the Lord on September 2, 2017. We will miss him tremendously. Pastor George accepted Christ as Savior in June of 1966 at the age of 28. Just a year later, in 1967, he surrendered to the call to ministry. From 1968 through 1985 he served in evangelism. In 1984, Pastor George was called as an associate pastor to Calvary Baptist Church in Westminster where he served for the next ten years. In 1994, he answered a call to Crescent Baptist as pastor to the seniors, outreach and evangelism. His precious wife of nearly 60 years, Patty, lives in Lake Elsinore . They have five daughters and numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
