Hello! My name is Lori Brown, and I am the University Pastor here at First Baptist Plainview. My husband is Donnie and I have been married for 24 years. HE is currently the Missions Center Director at Wayland. Our children, Joshua and Hannah are both currently attending college, so we are deep in the throes of college life at our house right now!
I have been actively involved in the lives of university students since I was in college myself! College students are so full of energy and excitement for this next stage in their lives, and I love getting to be a part of that time when they are trying to discover their own identity apart from what they thing their family wants them to be. I love getting to know them and to invest in their lives while they are here in our community.
A favorite verse in our family is found in 1 Corinthians 10: 31 which says, "So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all to the glory of God." We have told our own children, and we tell our university students to do everything to the best of their abilities in order to glorify God. It is my hope that our university students will find a home here at First Baptist where they can use their God-given gifts to serve Him and to serve our community.
