  • Intergenerational Ministries | Firstpres

    HUDDLE UP Coaching Event This event is for everyone, because we all need to work together for the net generation. Every child needs 6-8 Godly older people to speak life into them while they are growing up. Are you someone who can join a kid's 'team' and pour courage, wisdom, and value into them? Maybe for you it's a grandchild, a neighbor's child, a single friend's child, the kids you work or volunteer around, or the kids you teach or coach. Each of us needs to be more mindful about our purpose in the lies of the children we know and love. ​ Join us as we learn why and how to build a strong team around all of our children! ​ Dinner - fun - kids' programming - breakout groups

    Home / About / Our People / Staff STAFF Home / About / Our People / Staff / howardg@firstpres.com (806) 350-5201 Howard Griffin Senior Pastor and Head of Staff Rev. Howard Griffin is the Senior Pastor and Head of Staff at First Pres. He's been here since 2010. Howard and his wife, Sarah, have 3 children: Hannah, Elizabeth, and John. Howard earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Trinity University, a Master of Divinity from Princeton Theological Seminary, and a Doctorate of Ministry from Fuller Theological Seminary. From 1996-2000, Howard was a Consultant with PriceWatherhouseCoopers. In 2001, he served as Seminary Intern at the Presbyterian Church of Toms River, New Jersey. In 2002 Howard served as Seminary Intern at Central Presbyterian Church in Summit, New Jersey. From 2003 – 2006, he was the Associate Pastor of College and Singles at First Presbyterian Church of Houston, Texas, and from 2006 – 2010 Howard served as Associate Pastor of Evangelism, Mission & Outreach at Highland Park Presbyterian Church of Dallas, Texas. Howard loves the people of First Pres and feels that the members here have a genuine love for the Lord, for His word, and for one another. Describing First Pres, Howard says "…it's a Christ - centered, Bible - based community that is committed to doing the work of God’s Kingdom here in Amarillo and abroad." For fun, Howard enjoys basketball, hiking, and golf. His favorite authors include John Stott, Dallas Willard, Timothy Keller, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, C.S. Lewis, Philip Yancey, and John Ortberg. His favorite book is The Bible and his favorite movie is “Chariots of Fire."If he has the choice, fajitas are always good! Howard lists John 15:5 as a favorite Bible verse: “I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing." Howard describes himself like this: "I’m a bit of an ecumenical mutt. My father was a Methodist, and my Mom was a Baptist when they got married. The big compromise of their marriage was to become Presbyterian, but I grew up attending the vacation Bible schools of all three denominations (Presbyterian, Baptist, and Methodist). I also attended an Episcopal school from when I was four until the 9th grade in Midland, Texas where I went to chapel everyday."
