Meet Our Pastor

Senior Pastor

David Wilson

David L Wilson became Pastor of Southcrest Baptist Church in September 1988. He served for 14 years before being called to a church in Nashville, Tennessee. Three years later, Bro David was asked to return and lead Southcrest once again. Since his return in 2005, Southcrest has become one of the fastest-growing churches in the United States, and certainly in Lubbock, Texas. The TV ministry of Southcrest is now shown around the world.

Bro David and Laura have been married since 1978. They have three children living in Nashville, Tennessee, Houston, Texas, and San Marcos, California. Two families are in the ministry, and one is a Christian recording artist. They have also been blessed with eight precious grandchildren. During his downtime, Bro David enjoys hunting, fishing, traveling, and time spent with family.

Brother David holds a degree in Religion from Ouachita Baptist University (1977), a Master of Divinity from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (1980), and a Doctor of Ministry from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary (1989).
