"Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered" (Romans 8:26, NKJV).
Due to the increase of COVID-19 cases in Dallas County, we have decided to not have the “in person” option for our Monday lunch meetings between now and the end of the year. The Pastors/Leaders Conference and the Executive Board meetings will be entirely on Zoom. The meeting time for these Monday meetings during Nov/Dec will move to 11:00 a.m. With our new bylaws, our Executive Board can conduct our business electronically.

-Dr. Bob Dean
Join us for Pastors/Leaders Conference on November 16th, 2020, via ZOOM. The ZOOM broadcast will begin at 11:00AM. Please join us to hear from Jared Richard.
Jared serves as the Senior Pastor of First Irving. He joined the staff in July of 2016 after spending over 8 years at Champion Forest Baptist Church in Houston, TX. Jared holds degrees from Louisiana State University and New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.

Jared has a passion for preaching God’s Word and moving the gospel to the ends of the earth. His hope is that his ministry at First Irving will help this community of faith love the truth of God’s Word more fully and be more dedicated to its declaration all over the world.
