David Dykes is named interim senior pastor for Mobberly Baptist Church in east Texas
LONGVIEW, Texas (KLTV) – The Mobberly Baptist Church hosted a Church business meeting on Sunday to raise awareness for Dr. David Dykes as interim leader pastor. With more than 750 members in attendance between the Longview and Marshall locations, membership voted unanimously for Dykes.
Dr. Dykes has been preaching and pastoring Alabama congregations since 1970 before pasting the Green Acres Baptist Church in Tyler in 1991. After serving as the senior pastor of Green Acres Baptist Church for over 30 years, Dykes retired in August 2021. He is now serving as Pastor Emeritus for Green Acres.
In a letter to church members, Dykes wrote: âI vow to love you, guide you, and faithfully preach God’s word to you until Jesus returns or until God brings you your next senior pastor. God has already chosen him and at his perfect time he will come. Until then, God wants to prepare the church and the next pastor for this wonderful day. “
Dykes took over his official duties as interim senior pastor on Monday. The Pastor Search Committee continues its search for Mobberly’s next senior pastor.
“I am delighted that Pastor David is coming to Mobberly as our Interim Senior Pastor,” said Andy Hill, Executive Pastor of Ministries at Mobberly. âHe is a gifted leader and preacher. His sermons are personal, timely, and engaging. His pastor experience and tenure will be invaluable to our church, staff, and ward as we await our next senior pastor. “
