Dr. Jeff Schreve
Jeff Schreve became the Pastor of First Baptist Church Texarkana in February of 2003 and founded From His Heart Ministries in late 2004. He previously served on staff at Champion Forest Baptist Church in Houston, Texas. Jeff graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in 1984 with a degree in Business Administration.
After spending twelve years in the business world as a salesman (Landell Manufacturing, Waste Management, Inc. and Nalco Chemical Company), God called Jeff to preach. He earned a Master of Divinity degree from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in December of 2000 and a Doctor of Ministry degree from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in December of 2014.
Jeff is a passionate communicator whose love for the Lord and love for people comes out in every sermon he preaches. He thinks the Christian life is the most exciting life of all. He also thinks being boring is a terrible sin. Pastor Jeff started From His Heart Ministries for the purpose of reaching people around the nation and the world for Christ with the Word of God.
Jeff met his wife, Debbie, in the Singles Department at Champion Forest Baptist Church in 1985. They were married in 1986 and have been blessed with three wonderful daughters, three sons-in-law, two precious granddaughters and two adorable grandsons.
