Murray Gossett is the Associate Pastor of Outreach and Adults at First Pres. He's been on staff here for over 30 years. Murray is married to the former Jeri Albertson of Amarillo. They have five children. Murray attended Highland Park High School, SMU, and Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California. He was a High School pastor at Highland Park Presbyterian Church in Dallas from 1980-1990. Murray loves working at First Pres because of the Christ - centered, grace - focused body of believers. Murray is also a basketball fan and coaches at a local Christian school. His favorite author is John Stott, and he read all of his books during his sabbatical last summer. Murray's favorite passage is Paul’s prayer in Eph 3:14-21 --- it shows us what to pray for! The Gossett's theme when raising triplets was Mother Teresa’s quote “ I know God will not give me more that I am able, but I wish He would not trust me so much." Jeri and Murray will add their 6th grandchild in October 2023!
