Hi, my name is James Stowe and I am the Minister of Children and Families here at First Baptist Plainview. I love kids and the energy they have for life and the Lord. I love helping parents to be the instrument that God uses to bring their children to the Lord and disciple them.
I graduated from Sam Houston State University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Advertising and Graphic Design and from there I went on to Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and graduated with a Master of Arts in Christian Education. I have served the Lord as a Youth Minister, Education & Children’s minister all around Texas and on the mission field in Wichita, Kansas.
I married my High School sweetheart Sherry and we have three kids, Kaitlyn, Maegan and Jacob. I enjoy reading my Bible, spending time with family and friends, driving my Jeep Wrangler, and playing video games on my Playstation 4.
Some of my favorite Bible verses are:
23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, And He delights in his way.
Psalm 37:23 (NKJV)
6 The Lord preserves the simple; I was brought low, and He saved me.
Psalm 116:6 (NKJV)
2 My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.Psalm 121:2 (NKJV)
