Larry Davis moved to this area from his home town of Edinburg, in the Rio Grande Valley, following graduation from Howard Payne University in 1970.
While obtaining his Masters of Divinity degree from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Larry served as minister to youth at Fairview Baptist Church in Grand Prairie. After serving at El Centro and Mountainview Colleges as Baptist Student Union director, he served as minister of youth and single adults at First Baptist Church of Garland, Park Cities Baptist Church in Dallas and Wilshire Baptist Church in Dallas before coming to South Garland as pastor in June of 1990.
Larry and his wife, Marilyn, have lived in Garland since 1974, where they raised their two children, Blake and Betsy, both graduates of South Garland High School. Marilyn has been employed by the Baptist General Convention of Texas since 1970 and devotes much of her time loving and working with the small children and infants at the church.

The love and appreciation for the stability Pastor Larry has brought to SGBC runs very deep in my heart; and, I look forward to celebrating his twenty-fifth anniversary with SGBC. I enjoy telling people "He is my friend, that also happens to be my pastor".- Koleda Swaithes
