Toby Baxley, Worship Pastor
I grew up in Hagerman, New Mexico, trusted Christ at the age of 8 and was baptized at First Baptist Church of Hagerman. I was called to ministry at age 21 and licensed by First Baptist Church of Hagerman in December 1997, the day after proposing marriage to my wife, Melissa. I worked in the business world and led worship on a part-time and bi-vocational basis until the Lord called us to Kerrville Bible Church in 2016. We are tremendously blessed to be a part of this church.
I graduated with degrees in Commercial Music from South Plains College in Levelland, Texas, and Music Business from West Texas A&M University. My family and I moved to Kerrville from East Texas, where we lived for ten years. While in East Texas, we were active members of Garden Valley Bible Church, where I served as Worship Leader and Elder.
In addition to leading in worship at KBC, I am a songwriter and recording artist. I have released four albums of my own: Worship the Newborn King is an album of original worship music for the Christmas season. We Sing Hallelujah and Perfectly Well are albums of original worship music and hymn re-makes for all seasons. Hymns with Friends is a live recording of a night of hymn singing, recorded at Garden Valley Bible Church. Sheet music for my original music is distributed by PraiseCharts. All of my music can be streamed from Bandcamp and other sites across the internet.
In my spare time, I enjoy BBQ (mostly eating and a little cooking) and watching football (mostly the Cowboys and the Chiefs). I also enjoy reading, drinking good coffee (the pursuit of which is quite a rabbit hole), and spending time with my wife and our four children: Garrett, Vivian, Cora, and Wyatt.
Most Sundays find us at Dickey's after church. This is your invitation to join us for lunch. Kids eat free.
