Meet Our Staff

Dean Dickens – Pastor in the Interim

Dr. G. Dean Dickens has been Agape’s Pastor in the Interim (Intentional Interim Minister) since November 2013.  He and Karr La have just retired from 28 years of missionary service mixed with pastoring in Dallas.  For many years, his great love has been cross-cultural preaching training primarily in developing countries and with a focus upon those with little or no education and resources.  He and Karr La have been married 44 years and have three married children scattered across the world.  His hobbies are golf—and looking for his lost golf balls.

Just called to Agape on June 4, 2017.  Michael Mills has agreed to become the new pastor of Agape and will be joining us soon.  He brings his wife Laura and two children Cyrus (4) and Tessa (1 1/2) with him.

Agape is excited to have this wonderful family as part of it’s membership.

She has been a member of Agape Baptist Church since 2008. She lives in Fort Worth, TX with her husband and two children.



Church Leadership

Agape Baptist Church highly values a Christian doctrine called “The Priesthood of All Believers.” Agape, then, is democratic in polity and is not subject to the control of any other ecclesiastical body. Decisions related to the ministries, programs, finances, and other resources rest with the active church membership and are made during business conferences of the Church membership each month. The church is blessed with a great number of leaders serving together on mission.
