Jack Graham Career
He began his ministry as pastor of East Side Baptist in Cross Plains in Callahan County, Texas (1970–1971). Following his associate pastorate at Sagamore Hill Baptist Church (1972–1975), he went on to pastor First Baptist Church in Hobart, Oklahoma (1975–1978), First Baptist Church in Duncan, Oklahoma (1978–1981), and First Baptist Church in West Palm Beach, Florida (1981–1989).
In 1989, Prestonwood Baptist Church, then a Dallas congregation with a membership of approximately 11,000, called Graham as pastor after its founding pastor, Bill Weber, admitted to an extramarital affair and resigned. As the church family continued to increase by some 2,000 members annually, leaders and members prayed, investigated, deliberated and finally, in 1999 built a new 7,500-seat worship facility, school and ministry complex on 150 acres (0.61 km2) in west Plano.
In 2006, Prestonwood opened its second campus in Prosper, near U.S. Highway 380 and Dallas Parkway. That same year, the church also completed a new children’s wing and updated its facilities for PowerPoint Ministries, including an upgrade to High Definition (HDTV).
The church reached the 43,000-member mark in 2018, with regular attendance at worship services averaging about 17,000. He has served two terms as president of the Southern Baptist Convention, the largest American Baptist denomination, with 16 million members, and as president of the SBC Pastor’s Conference.
He served as Honorary Chairman of the 2015 National Day of Prayer and is currently a member of President Donald Trump’s Religious Advisory Council. He participated in the National Prayer Service at the Washington National Cathedral the day after the inauguration.
