Pastor Jeff Schreve’s real life story is one of personal transformation. His struggles and victories form the foundation of his calling and intersect with the lives of people from all walks-of-life. His positive message is compelling many into a genuine life-experience with the living God. Jeff believes the Bible is true and he is passionate about introducing Christ to those who feel hopeless, helpless and think God is out of reach.

Pastor Schreve believes it is a shame for a preacher to be boring. That is why he "tells it like it is" with clear biblical content combined with engaging, personal stories that are relevant, compassionate, and humorous. His messages are filled with life-giving principles for living.

Jeff is a graduate of The University of Texas at Austin (1984) with a degree in Business Administration.  After spending twelve years in sales, God called Jeff to preach.  He graduated from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in December of 2000 with a Master of Divinity degree and is working to finish his Doctor of Ministry studies there. He served as Pastor of Membership and Missions at Champion Forest Baptist Church in Houston, TX from 1997 to 2003 before being called to First Baptist Texarkana as Senior Pastor in February of 2003.  Since 2003, God has blessed the church with rapid and sustained growth, great energy, excitement, and spiritual transformation.  In 2010, First Baptist Church Texarkana was honored at the annual National Religious Broadcasters convention in Nashville with the Milestone Award for 50 years of continuous TV broadcasting of the Gospel.
