DR. ELLIS OROZCO  |  Senior Pastor





Dr. Ellis Orozco, also known as Pastor Ellis, joined our church in June of 2009, bringing experience, enthusiasm and energy with him. It was the beginning of an exciting new era at FBCR. 




Born and raised in Houston, Pastor Ellis graduated from Texas A&M with a degree in engineering before going on to earn his Master of Divinity from Southwestern Seminary in Fort Worth and his Doctor of Ministry from Truett Seminary of Baylor University in Waco, Texas.


Pastor Ellis served two churches before coming to FBCR -- Corpus Christi Baptist Church in Corpus Christi, Texas, and Calvary Baptist Church in McAllen, Texas. He has served on numerous committees for the Baptist General Convention of Texas. He is former chair of the Christian Life Commission, has served as a board member for Rio Grande Valley Baptist Hospital and is currently on the board of Buckner International. He has preached at many events across the country and has participated in mission trips around the world.




During his time at school in Fort Worth, he met and married Priscilla Ruth Castro. Priscilla is a graduate of Baylor University with a Bachelor of Science in Education. They have three children – Gabriel, Michael and Celeste.


Pastor Ellis’s interests are family, friends, reading, baseball, and golf – in that order.
