Pastor Jim has served as Senior Pastor and Elder at Angelo Bible Church since November 1988. He is the church's third pastor.
Born of Christian parents, he came to know the Lord at an early age, moving from place to place as a part of a military family until he began his college studies at North Texas State. During those years, his parents looked for a strong Bible teaching church in the areas where they lived.
Pastor Jim graduated from Dallas Bible College and then from Dallas Theological Seminary with a Master of Theology degree in 1983. His wife, Pat, serves with him at the church in a variety of capacities.
He has a daughter, Megan, a deceased daughter, Katie, sons-in-law, Mike and Cory and four grandchildren.
He is committed to the verse by verse expository preaching of the Bible and the “equipping of the saints for the work of the ministry.” He loves to study the Bible in the original language and teach according to the context with clear application. He desires that all might be saved and that the saved would be discipled and come to know the abundant life that Jesus offers. He has a passion for the life changing power of the Word of God.
Pastor Jim has served on the boards of area Christian ministries.
Kyle Hooks came on board as the Associate Pastor of Angelo Bible Church in May of 2013. He has been a member of ABC and a sponsor for the youth group since 2008. He is currently pursuing a Masters in Divinity from Liberty Theological Seminary.
Originally from Austin, Kyle is married to Megan, his high school sweetheart and the love of his life. They have two daughters.
Kyle's passion is the Gospel, the Word of God, and seeing how God can use His Word to transform lives, particularly for youth, young adults and young families.
