Pastor Taylor accepted Christ as his Savior and was baptized at the age of 12 while attending
First Baptist Church of Cedar Lake, Indiana. At the age of 20, he joined the United States Air Force and served for 16 years in various places such as England, Italy, and Oklahoma.
In 1996, while stationed at Altus Air Force Base, Oklahoma, he surrendered his life to serve the Lord full time. However, it wasn't until February 2000, that the Lord called him to preach the Gospel and serve Him as a missionary to Mexico. In June 2001, he and his family began deputation in preparation to serve in Mexico. While on the mission field, the Lord allowed them to start a church, christian school, and work closely with an orphanage educating the children in the things of God. In June 2011, the Lord called a national to take over the church and ministries and the Taylor family returned to the states and awaited the Lord's direction.
Oklahoma City became "home" as they traveled the states reporting to their supporting churches. While not on the road they attended Sara Road Baptist Church. In June 2011 their pastor of 22 years retired and the Lord began to impress upon Pastor Taylor's heart to resign from the mission field and serve this local assembly. The church also believed this was the Lord's will and voted him in as Pastor on August 10, 2011.
