Dr. Greg Ammons
Dr. Greg Ammons is the Senior Pastor of FBC Garland, Texas. He was born and raised in Boswell, Oklahoma, where he attended the First Baptist Church as a child. At the age of nine God convicted his heart of the need to place his faith in Jesus Christ as his personal Savior. As a teen, God called him into vocational ministry.
Pastor Greg earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Religion from Oklahoma Baptist University before obtaining the Master of Divinity and Doctor of Ministry degrees from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth. In 2015, he was awarded an Honorary Doctorate in Theology from Dallas Baptist University.
He has served as the Senior Pastor of FBCG since 2004. Previously, he served as the Senior Pastor of Floyd Baptist Church in Greenville, Texas, and Faith Baptist Church of Iowa Park, Texas.
In addition to serving in the pastorate, Pastor Greg has taught theology on the university level at Wayland Baptist University and Dallas Baptist University. He has also supervised doctoral projects for Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and served in a supervisory role for a thesis at Dallas Theological Seminary. Pastor Greg has also served as a contributor to Preaching Source, a sermon-preparation website of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary to help pastors.
In 2009, he authored the book, “Now My Eye Sees You: What A Doctorate Did Not Teach Me About God, My Son Did.” His hobbies include running, traveling, and broadcasting sporting events for Cumulus Broadcasting.
Pastor Greg and his wife, Lisa, have one son, Camden, who is 14 years old. Lisa helps in various aspects of ministry and loves horses as a hobby. They absolutely love FBCG and are thankful God has called them to serve here.
