Lead Pastor - Boyd Bettis

Pastor Boyd and his wife, Brittany, live in Riverside with their three children: Whittaker, Fletcher, and Eliza Kate. They have been married for ten years and are both from Jacksonville, FL.

Pastor Boyd Bettis started The District Church in his living room with 12 people, but his ministry story doesn't start there. He served on staff at two local churches in Jacksonville that have been a support to his calling of church planting since the beginning. In the fall of 2012 Boyd was commissioned from Chets Creek Church to plant The District Church in Riverside and Chets Creek Church remains a financial and moral support to our mission.

Pastor Boyd has a Bachelor's degree from The Baptist College of Florida and Master of Arts in Religious Studies from Liberty University.
