Hello my name is Jeff Duvall. I was born and raised in the home of a bi-vocational Baptist minister. I was raised by parents that instilled in me the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Born into a family of service, I was blessed to hear the gospel and have seeds planted that would lead me to accept Christ at the age of 7 at Christian Home Baptist church in Chickamauga, Georgia. Sadly, for the next 13 years, I merely existed as a Christian. But praise be to God for in 1995, He forgave my being “lukewarm”, and He lit a fire within me to serve, a fire that would not settle for dry and mundane, a fire that still burns bright to this day. After rededicating my life to Christ, Christ would see fit to give me a stand-in-the-gap mentality. With this new vision for my life as a Christian, I began to piece together the puzzle that now makes up my life as a Southern Baptist Pastor. Amazingly, God took a willing vessel from being a youth volunteer and leader, to being the senior pastor of one of Red River County’s fastest growing churches, First Baptist Church Bogata, TX.
