For over 30 years, Pastor Andy McQuitty has been preaching, leading and shepherding Irving Bible Church (IBC) in the Dallas area as senior pastor. He is currently helping to mentor and lead the next generation of IBC pastors, continuing to write and preach, consulting with other churches and ministries, and getting more saddle time in the wind on his 2012 Harley Street Glide CVO! 

Andy is the author of two books, “Notes from the Valley: A Spiritual Cancer Travelogue” and The Way to Brave: Shaping a David Faith in Our Goliath World,” and with more on the way. He’s been married to Alice for 41 years, is the father of five grown kids and grandad to three. When he’s not consumed with all of the above, Andy enjoys hitting tennis serves with his Wilson Clash, and rolling putts with his Scotty Cameron Newport.

When he’s not “eldering” with the other top brass on the Irving Bible Church (IBC) Elder in the Dallas area, Craig Pierce serves as a part of the Sunday Teaching Team. For the past 35 years, he and his wife Cathy have owned and operated preschools in the area, and love spending time with their grown kiddos and granddaughter Callyn. Craig loves Mexican food — especially table side guacamole — and also the salmon croquettes from Luby’s (OK, he loves most foods). He marvels every day that God has used an introvert like him to teach others the simple message of grace found in the gospel.
