Randy Fults, Senior Pastor
Our senior pastor has three passions in life: God, people and fishing. He loves to proclaim God’s word and does so in a unique manner. His priority is studying God’s word so he can equip and educate believers. He especially enjoys discipling individuals and getting to know people better. He has loved to fish his entire life and spent much time on the lake during his childhood. God took that passion and also made him a fisher of men. He has been serving the Lord at Trout Creek for over twenty-five years. Throughout the years he has seen the Lord do some amazing things at the church. The church has constructed two new sanctuaries, an education building, family life center, and youth facility. During his tenure the Lord has used Trout Creek to establish a partnership with Sabine Boruga, a native missionary in Romania that is doing an amazing work. He also witnessed God raise Patrica from the congregation to be placed on the mission field. Randy holds a bachelors degree in Theology from Texas Baptist Institute and Seminary. He and his wife, Debra, have been married over thirty years and enjoy working in the ministry together. When our pastor isn’t behind the pulpit or studying the scripture you will find him spending time with family and friends, fishing or outside doing one of his favorite activities, mowing the lawn.
