Billy Oliver

Interim Pastor/Associate Pastor

I was educated with Bachelor's and Master's Degrees from Hardin-Simmons University, Abilene Christian University, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and Texas Tech University. After 40 years in full-time Christian ministry as an SBC missionary in Tanzania and Yemen (21 years), a Director of Missions in Daytona Beach, FL, and 20 years as a full-time pastor in churches in Colorado and Texas, I came to Lamar Street Baptist Church as Associate Pastor of Men and Senior Adults. It has been a privilege and a great blessing to be a part of what God has done and is doing around the world.

I am also blessed with a wonderful wife who has stood by me and supported me through these years of ministry, three grown children, and seven grandchildren. I look forward with great anticipation to what God is going to do as we partner together at Lamar Street Baptist Church to know more of Christ and to make Him known to the world.
