Meet Our New Minister

Don Strickland with Guitar.jpgWestside is delighted to have the Rev. Don Strickland as our minister. Rev. Strickland joined us on June 1, 2022.

Don Strickland is an ordained pastor. He holds a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Texas and received his master’s degree from TCU's Brite Divinity School. Prior to joining Westside, he served as the lead minister for a different church in Fort Worth and as a public school administrator. 

Rev. Strickland's academic interests focus on the intersection of politics and religion, so he also serves as community organizer. Married for 30 years, he has two grown children. He also is the founder of Jubilee Farm and Ranch, LLC, where he enjoys raising livestock. You can see some of Rev. Strickland's previous reflections on our Youtube Channel.
