Our Pastor

Pastor and Debbie Hi friends,

I am Pastor Joe Davis and my wife’s name is Debbie.    We are thrilled that you dropped by our web page.

Debbie and I would like to introduce ourselves to you.  I moved down to Pensacola in 1983 to attend Pensacola Christian College.  There I prepared for the ministry and received my Bible training.  Debbie had moved to Pensacola in 1980 with her family.  Her father, Jerry Lucas was a church planter who started Cross and Crown Baptist Church that same year.

In 1985 I began ministering as a youth worker at Cross and Crown Baptist church where I would meet  Debbie (the pastor’s daughter).  Debbie began attending  Pensacola Christian College where she earned a Bachelors in Science Degree in Elementary Education in 1990.  Debbie and I courted while she attended college and then were married in 1989.

In August of 1990, my Father in law, Pastor Lucas, resigned the ministry as pastor and I became the pastor of Cross and Crown Baptist Church.  While serving as pastor of the church I continued my education at Pensacola Christian College where I finished the Phd. program in 1997.

All through the years Debbie has been my faithful co-laborer in the ministry and wonderful mother and home schooler of our children.  The Lord has blessed us with a wonderful family of nine children.  We are so thankful to God for His blessings and are thrilled to serve the precious people at Cross and Crown.

Debbie and I look forward to meeting you.
