Courtney has been serving as the Student Pastor at FBC Forney since April of 2018. He and his wife, Crystal, have been married since February of 2000 and have two daughters – Addalyn and Baileigh. He previously served in the Jonesboro, Arkansas area as a Pastor before entering Student Ministry in 2014. He has a BACS from Mid America Baptist Theological Seminary and is currently pursuing a Master’s of Divinity from Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
His vision for students is simplistic – “I want students to have complete ownership over their faith. I want them to understand that God’s Word is our authority. I want them to know what it means and what it looks like to live life on mission for Jesus. And I want them to understand the importance of remaining connected to the local church. I believe that when students have a firm grasp on these three areas, a complete ownership of their faith will be displayed within their life. I want to challenge them weekly to be a part of our ministry, to invite their lost and unchurched friends/peers, and to pray that God will do BIG things in the life of our Student Ministry. I also want to encourage and challenge each student to use the platform that God has given them in order to make an eternal impact in the lives of those around them. I want them to see that life is more than about just their self and that God wants to us them to glorify Himself. Our purpose is to make Jesus known. More than anything, I want to see every student in our community transformed by the gospel and walking closely with Jesus!”
