It is with great enthusiasm that the SPRC announces to our church that our next senior pastor will be Rev. Dr. Kevin Tully. Dr. Tully will be joining us from First Church in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, where he has been the senior pastor since 2008. During his tenure in Bartlesville, the First Church has experienced significant growth in membership, ministries, facilities, and in the most important factor of all: new professions of faith.
Dr. Tully has a Doctor of Ministry from Drew University, a Master of Divinity from Perkins School of Theology at SMU, and a Bachelor of Science from Oklahoma City University. He has also completed doctoral-level studies in Pastoral Care and Counseling at Phillips Theological Seminary and Samaritan Counseling Center. He has served churches in Oklahoma, Texas, Northern Ireland, and the Republic of Ireland. Dr. Tully’s book, “Trash Talking to God: A Forty-Day Devotional Guide for Lent” was released in February 2017.
He is a passionate advocate of physical activity who exercises six days a week and runs in 5ks and triathlons. Dr. Tully and his wife, Georgia, have three children and one grandchild. That apple of their eye lives in the Dallas area, so they are excited to be moving south of the Red River. Kevin will begin his service to First United Methodist Church of Waxahachie on July 1st. Details on how we will be welcoming the Tullys to our community and to our church family will be forthcoming.
