Join our welcoming community of believers for powerful, band-led worship and a bold, biblical message from our pastor, Dr. Jeffress.
The Band-Led Service is home to one of Dallas’ finest worship bands, led by Worship Leaders Abel Serna & Kelsi Carlile and Pastors Brent McFadden and Kevin Batista.
The Historic Sanctuary is intimate, has a vintage feel, and is full of character. The music is current to our culture, the messages are applicable, and the people are warm and friendly.
In the last year, the First Dallas Worship Band has had the incredible opportunity to partner with some of the best singer-songwriters and worship leaders in Christian music today. Chris McClarney, Charity Gayle, Josh Baldwin, Jordan Feliz, and many others are some notable guest artists who have made our services a powerful and authentic experience each Sunday.
Also, Grammy and Dove Award-winning artist, Rebecca St. James, has been our Band-Led Service’s Resident Artist for almost two years. Once a month, she joins our team and brings excellence and warmth to our service. Instantly, she felt like she had always been a part of our church family. The chemistry has been so good that Rebecca decided to record and release a brand new worship album with the First Dallas Worship Band.
Brent’s life calling involves helping others athletically and spiritually, so he loves using sports as a vehicle to reach people for Christ. Brent and his wife, Bethany, have been married since 2015 and are the proud parents of three little girls.
