Our Pastor

OBC PastorBro. David has served in the ministry for over 25 years as a Children’s Church Pastor, Youth Pastor, Associate Pastor, Adjunct Professor and Senior Pastor.  He has served as the pastor of Oakland Baptist Church for over fifteen years.  He accepted Christ as his savior when he was sixteen years old and has never looked back. David has a deep love for God and his congregation and is passionate about the ministry.  In addition to ministering at Oakland he is also an instructor for SBTC Disaster Relief Communications.

Dr. Christine is a trained mediator and budget counselor.  He holds a Bachelors degree in Biblical Studies from Criswell College and a Masters of Theological Studies from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary which gives him a solid and conservative biblical perspective.  He holds a MBA from LeTourneau University which gives him the administrative skill for ministry and he holds a Ph.D. from the University of North Texas which gives him added educational leadership for ministry.  However, he recognizes that education only gives the minister certian tools for ministry; the minister’s ability comes not from his education or experience, but from his yeilding to the Holy Spirit.
