Dr. Jim Brewer, Senior Pastor


Pastor 2Dr. Jim Brewer became the Senior Pastor at FBC Lakeside in August 2015. He is a native Oklahoman from a small community near Tulsa called Berryhill. He became a follower of Jesus Christ in March 1989 and was called to preach and teach the Gospel of Jesus Christ during his senior year of high school a few years later. 

 Dr. Jim attended Oklahoma Baptist University in Shawnee, where he met his wife, Cynthia. They were married on July 13, 1996.  Cynthia holds a Bachelor’s degree in Family Psychology from OBU and has extensive experience in social work. Jim has a Bachelor’s degree from OBU, and both a Masters of Divinity and a PhD in New Testament Studies from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. He has served several churches in Oklahoma and Texas in different capacities.

The Brewers have three girls and one boy: Emma, who is 14 years old, Sophia (10), Elijah (4) and Anastasia (2).  Cynthia enjoys reading, decorating, crafts and nearly anything artistic. Jim loves almost anything sports-related, especially Sooner football (sorry Longhorn fans). Emma and Sophia enjoy singing, dancing and helping care for their younger brother and sister. Elijah loves cars and donuts.  Ana is happy so long as she has a full tummy and your undivided attention.
