Richard Price has served as an elder at FBC for 26 years beginning in 1991, several of those years as Board Chairman, currently as Vice Chairman. He teaches a Sunday morning adult Bible class; Anne, his wife, co-leads a Wednesday night Bible study. His desire is that we truthfully represent the life and teaching of Christ as we seek to live “in the world, not of the world, yet for the world,” with a concern for people who lack financial and social resources.

Richard and Anne moved to Friendswood and joined FBC in 1990, raising their 4 children here (parents of 5 children and 12 grandchildren). They both worked with Cru’s Campus Ministry until 1990.

Madelin and I have been attending Fellowship Bible Church since 2002. We have four girls.  I am a Chemical Engineer by training and have been working as an Electrical Engineer in aerospace for twenty years.  I became an elder two years ago.  I have served teaching children's Sunday School, organizing Men's ministry, and leading small groups.  More recently, since 2010, I with other leaders teach the scriptures in an adult bible fellowship on Sunday morning before the worship service.

My passion is to encourage Christians to live out what you believe. It is my hope that our church members would continue to love each other more and more.  By providing opportunities for members to connect we seek to encourage mutual benefit in acts of mercy, worship, prayer and the word.  That our community would begin to witness the sweetness of what it means to be a follower of Jesus.

KEVIN KEY

I have been attending Fellowship Bible Church for over 20 years now and have been an elder for over 10 years.  My real passion for ministry is for the next generation of believers, more specifically, students who have just graduated and are moving out into the world – whether that is attending college or starting a career.  Consequently, I have served in the College and Career ministry for over 15 years.  I would like to see each one of our students learn who their identity is in Jesus Christ and start/continue that life long journey of being a disciple as they transition out on their own.  Additionally, I enjoy teaching our 2-5 year olds and helping out in Wee Worship on Sunday mornings.  I find great joy in watching the very young children learn to sing worship songs and begin to have some small understanding of who our Heavenly Father is.
