Bob Wallace

Pastor

Dr. Bob and Betty WallacePastor Bob Wallace grew up in a Christian home in southern New Jersey.  At 19 years old, he went forward at a evangelistic crusade to trust Christ as his Savior.  After attending a local college to begin training to become a teacher, he felt God's call on his life to become a preacher and enrolled at Bob Jones University, where he received both his bachelors degree and Masters of Divinity.

 

In 1964, he married Betty Richardson and moved to the Chicago suburbs to become the youth pastor at the Oak Forest Baptist Temple.  Many of the teens who sat under the ministry of "Pastor Bob" have gone on to become pastors, missionaries, and serve in other full-time Christian ministries.  After serving ten years as youth pastor, God directed Pastor Wallace to relocate his family to Dallas, Texas where he would become pastor of the Galilean Baptist Church.  He spent over twenty years at Galilean and was instrumental in overseeing the church's move from Oak Cliff to the Dallas suburb of Cedar Hill.

 

In June 1997, God brought Pastor and Betty Wallace to Regency Baptist Church.  During the years they have been here, many souls have been saved, families have been reached, and believers have been strengthened in the faith.  In May 2012, Pastor Wallace was honored by Crown College with an honorary Doctor of Divinity degree for faithful Christian service.

 

The Wallaces live in Arlington and have three daughters, six grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren.


Bryan Kaffenbarger

Assistant to the Pastor

Bryan Kaffenbarger grew up in a Christian home in Urbana, Ohio.  At a young age, he recognized his need for forgiveness of his sins and placed his faith in Christ.  Bryan dedicated his life to full-time Christian service at a revival service when he was sixteen.  One week later at a youth rally, he responded to God's call to be a preacher of the gospel.  He enrolled at Crown College where he received his bachelor's degree and a one-year Masters degree.  After graduation, Bryan moved to Texas, where he became the Dean of Students for Crown Southwest Norris Seminary.  While ministering at various churches in north Texas, Bryan met and began dating Anneliese Hymer, and they were married in 2014.  In May 2016, God blessed the Kaffenbargers with a baby boy, Benjamin.

 

In July 2016, Regency voted to hire Bryan to serve as an assistant to our pastor.  His role at Regency includes teaching and preaching in various services, coordinating church activities, and outreach to young families and children.  Bryan will also use this opportunity to receive mentoring from Pastor Wallace.  Regency was honored to license Bryan to the gospel ministry with a special service on March 26, 2017.

 

In addition to his duties at Regency, Bryan works full-time in construction to remodel homes in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, and he and Anneliese are currently enjoying renovating their home in Burleson.
