    William grew up just outside of Waco, where he met his wife of over 20 years, Lisa. God has blessed them with 3 wonderful kids: Daniel, Hannah, and Philip. After graduating with his Bachelor's in Music Education from the University of North Texas, he went to and graduated from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary with a Master's in Religious Education. Since the age of 19, he has served in various ministry roles and has been blessed to be a part of some wonderful churches.  


    On Father's Day of 2005, he and his family joined FBC Port A where the Lord called him serve as Pastor. It is here at FBC Port A that God has allowed them to be a part of a dynamic church that wants to impact its community and the world.  "We are not a perfect church, nor do we pretend to be one...but we worship a perfectly Real God who helps us in the real world."

    Eleah has been our church secretary and administrative assistant since October of 2013. She and her family have been a huge blessing to our church, both as a staff member as well as serving in many other different roles. She is often accompanied in the office by her youngest son, Kynsler, who is the "office mascot." Her husband, James, is one of our very active volunteers who serves on our praise team as an audio/video technician. He is also the Principal of Port Aransas Middle School. Their older son, Easton, is a bright-eyed ball of energy who is a joy to have involved in our children's ministry. Eleah has a passion for serving in our children's and praise team ministries as well, and and is an avid fan of "any sports her boys are involved with."

    Charles Travis was originally sent to First Baptist Church Port Aransas by FBC Burnet to help with hurricane recovery. Charles has been married to His wife Neeley for 13 years, and they have four amazing daughters Aidan, Lexi, Emma, and Ellie. As sponsor on a Bounce mission trip to Houston in 2017 with the youth group of FBC Burnet God rekindled a call that He had given Charles to work in the youth ministry. Due to a series of doors that God opened Charles felt called to work with the youth here at FBC Port A.  After a year of interim youth ministry Charles became the full-time youth pastor January 1st 2019.
