THE "OPEN" CHURCH
A Church of Christ * A Church for Christ * A Church like Christ
Rex was raised on a farm near Sudan, Texas. His mother and father raised four boys on that farm. They took them to church every time the doors were open … sent them to school … taught them to work in the fields … let them play football, basketball, and baseball … loved them with a tough and tender kind of love.
Rex became a Christian in the church of Christ in Sudan. It was there that his Bible class teachers reinforced what his mother and father were teaching him at home. It was there that he made the decision to obey Jesus.
When Rex went to college at Abilene Christian and Lubbock Christian, he received teaching and saw examples that inspired him to become a teacher. He wanted to teach young people about Jesus … to help them understand that Jesus can really be their best Friend.
Rex received further Bible training at the Sunset School of Preaching in Lubbock, Texas. When he graduated, he served the Lord in Olton, Texas and Dayton, Ohio. When he returned to Sunset, he was given the opportunity to train young men and women to serve the Lord in mission fields all over the world, through the Adventures in Missions (AIM) program. In 10 years some 600 young adults made it their aim to teach the gospel in over 30 nations and over 20 states.
In the 30 years that Rex has been teaching people about Jesus, God has allowed him to preach in 12 foreign countries and some 30 states. Whether it is across the street or around the world, Rex teaches about a “real” Jesus, who offers “good news for the poor”, “grace for the sinner”, and “comfort for the broken and bruised”.
Rex has a bachelor’s degree in Social Work through Lubbock Christian University and is a Licensed Social Worker. He recently completed his Masters work in Professional Counseling through Regions University in Montgomery, Alabama.
Rex is blessed with a loving family, faithful friends and now an incredible ministry.
