Dr. Cullen Clark has served as pastor of FBC Crowley since 2013. By consistently proclaiming a message of grace and redemption, Cullen has sought to lead the congregation to becoming a welcoming community that celebrates our undeserved salvation.
Cullen and his wife Kara (a native of Acadiana) met in college at Howard Payne University. After spending some time in Fort Worth, Texas they later moved to Edinburgh, Scotland before returning to south Louisiana. The Clarks have three lively children, Elizabeth, William, and Jakob, and live on her childhood farm in Mowata, where their days are spent endlessly cutting grass, tending hogs, and enjoying life together.
