Bro. Patrick (Pat) Dan Riley
"And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose." Romans 8:28
Bro. Pat and his wife, Debbie, joined the ministry staff of First Baptist Church Lometa in September 2017. In July 2018, the church voted to call Bro. Pat as their Pastor.
With a Pastor's heart and passion for the Gospel of Jesus Christ, Bro. Pat comes to First Baptist Church Lometa with over 38 years of pastoral experience. He began in pastoral ministry at Pecan Grove Baptist Church in San Saba, Texas. He pastored the First Baptist Church of Farwell and the First Baptist Church, Eunice, New Mexico before he began a 13 year ministry as Senior Pastor at Calvary Baptist Church, Brownfield, Texas. In 2002, Bro. Pat was called to the Calvary Baptist Church in Abilene, Texas and in 2004 as Senior Pastor for the First Baptist Church, Cisco, Texas.
Bro. Pat and Debbie married in 1973 and have 3 grown children,Amanda (Richards), Kyle and Deidre (Hood). Seven granddaughters and one great-granddaughter make for a lively home on their ranch in Zephyr, Texas.
Debbie, a Math teacher (retired), Mom and wonderful pastor's wife currently leads the Praise and Worship at First Baptist Church Lometa.
Bro. Pat has a passion for people and a unique perspective into human pain and suffering. Ministering in hospitals, nursing homes and through personal interactions with the hurting and grieving, Bro. Pat has witnessed God's grace and strength at work in the lives of people. When Debbie began her journey in chronic pancreatitus, their ministry and passion grew for hurting people. In 2006, Bro. Pat's battle with autoimmune diseases forced early retirement and disability.
By the grace and on-going healing of the Lord Jesus Christ, Bro. Pat and Debbie are excited to minister today at First Baptist Church Lometa.
"To God be the glory, great things He has done."

"Lometa First Baptist Church hosts the Capital Area Food Bank truck the third Wednesday of every month. Without their generous outreach through this program, my family would often go hungry. I am grateful to the church for the hours their members give in this effort."
