I am a life long resident of Victoria county. I began my pastoral career in Billings, OK with a four and a half year stint at its First Baptist Church. After spending 10 years away in Fort Worth and Oklahoma I returned to the land of my birth in 1995 and have been the pastor of the Crescent Valley Baptist Church since February 1998. I also have a B.A. in History Teacher Education from the University of Houston Victoria and Master of Divinity from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth. I have also worked as a radio announcer/newsman/copy writer and ad salesman.

Some version of my family has lived around here since the 1880's--mainly the Crawfords. We Coffeys arrived in 1914 when my Great-Grandfather settled here and opened Coffey's Cash Grocery where Huvar's store was across from City Hall.

I live with my sweet little wife and three unpredictable felines.
