As young pastors, they married in April 1999 and have faithfully tended their flock ever since.

After thirteen years as Youth & Young Adult Pastors, they successfully planted and led their own hometown church as its Lead Pastors.
As seasoned pastors, the Boyds are faithful to serve and passionate about missions to expand the Kingdom. Over the years they have sent many individuals on mission trips and into active ministry and has served in many district-level Men’s, Women’s, Church Planting, and Training leadership positions, their ministry footprint has always been bigger than their local church. They believe a pastor’s role is to equip the saints and develop leaders to reach the unchurched.
Their vision for Dallas First Assembly is to cultivate a family-oriented, multi-ethnic, multi-generational, missional church that intentionally goes into the communities we serve to spread the Gospel.
