Dr. Peyton Hill

Senior Pastor

Peyton is passionate about preaching Christ from the entire Bible and motivating believers for global missions.

Peyton was born into a family that loves Jesus. He was raised in First Baptist Church of Ripley, Mississippi. During his childhood, he was taught about the Gospel, but it wasn't until he was a student at Mississippi State University that God began to warm his heart. As a college senior, Peyton turned to Christ for salvation. Instead of pursing the medical field as previously planned, he followed God's leading to Fort Worth, Texas to pursue a Master of Divinity degree from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. 

Peyton is married to Jordan Lee, and they have four children: Harper, Zane, Elliot and Wren.
