Meet the Hodges Family

Saturday, August 22nd @ 2 PM:


Meet & Greet for church members with the Hodges Family. 

Meet & Greet live streamed for those not able to attend in-person

The Pastor Search Team is looking forward to our members getting to know the Hodges family the weekend of August 22nd and 23rd. The church was asked to pray for our Pastor Search Committee and our new pastor. Now that we know who they are recommending, we ask each of you to prayerfully consider the candidate being recommended to the church to be our new pastor.
A Meet & Greet will be held at the church on Saturday August 22nd at 2:00 p.m. This will be an opportunity to hear from Wes and his family and to have a time of questions and answers. Because of the pandemic guidelines, it will be a “Town Hall” style meeting with the Hodges on the stage and members in the pews, which have already been marked appropriately to comply with social distancing. Additional seating and a live stream of the Meet & Greet will be provided in the Fellowship Hall. A live stream will also be available on the church website and on YouTube for those unable to attend in-person.

Wes Hodges



Pastor Wes is an avid reader, a struggling writer, and an average guitar player who loves music. He is a life-long Los Angeles Lakers fan. But his greatest passion is to see lives changed as they are transformed by the Christian message.

Pastor Wes Hodges grew up in Southern California, where he attended FBC Orange, CA. One night while preparing to go to sleep, he decided to pray. But it became clear to him that he had never asked Christ to forgive him of his sins and make Jesus his Lord and Savior. That night he prayed for Christ to forgive him and change his life. By the time he was in high school, he began leading Bible studies and became more and more convinced God was leading him to preach and teach. His passion for the church is for believers to grow in every way: To learn from Christ by developing their minds, to love like Christ by placing God first and treating others as good as they treat themselves, and to labor like Christ by making disciples. He pastored his first church in Utah. While helping another church in the area with their VBS, he met his wife Jennifer and they were married in 1994.

He moved to Texas and pastored churches in Corpus Christi and Kingsville while he taught English in public and private schools and finished his Master of Divinity at the Logsdon School of Theology at Hardin-Simmons University.

In 2008, he planted a church in Utah before moving back to Texas and pastoring for the past 9 years at Cornerstone Baptist Church in Alice, Texas. Wes and his wife Jennifer have two incredible daughters Emma (19), who is entering her third year of college as an education major, and Ellie (13), who enjoys art and computer games.
