Senior Pastor

When a friend from college taught a lesson on the Ten Commandments during a Bible study at a YMCA, God used that message to pierce Darwin’s heart and draw him to the Gospel. Not long after, Darwin Jordan committed his life to full-time ministry in the Church, serving since 1975 in various roles. He now ministers as the senior pastor at Fort Worth Presbyterian. He desires to “study and teach God’s Word, to see people believe in Christ, be built up in Christ, to form a congregation used to draw others to Christ, and to make them whole in Christ.”

A tried and true Crimson Tide fan, Darwin earned a bachelor of music degree from the University of Alabama. He went on to complete a master of divinity at the Reformed Theological Seminary.

Darwin is married to Kaye, and lists his favorite foods as anything she cooks. He also enjoys the arts (especially Beethoven and artist Dagnan-Bouveret), reading, writing, composing, and working out.


Associate Pastor

Although Ryan successfully earned his undergraduate degree from the University of Tennessee, he gained more than an education from his collegiate years: “My college years were extremely formative in my story. College is where I really began to ‘own’ my faith. It’s where I began to hear, for the first time, about those wonderful reformed doctrines of the Church. It’s where I first heard the message of grace.” A few years later, Ryan completed his Masters in Divinity and launched into ministry work.

Ryan married Ada and together have four daughters: Mae, Anne Hardin, Virginia, and Bess.

From playing the guitar to painting to golfing and swimming, Ryan has many interests and enjoys using those interests to connect with people.

“I love people. I love Jesus and His gospel. I love the Church. Ministry brings all three of these together. What ultimately compels me to ministry is the unconditional love and grace of God that saved a wretch like me.”


Director of Children’s Ministry

After serving more than six years on the Women’s Ministry Board — and in a variety of other leadership, teaching, and missions roles — Rebecca York took on the mantle of Director of Children’s Ministry in April 2020. In this capacity, she oversees all volunteers, staff, curriculum, and events for children from birth to 6thgrade. Her dual joys of seeing God glorified and children growing in faith uniquely suit her for this ministry. She recalls her early childhood faith after her mother’s death as an impetus for her current ministry.

“I needed a God who did not change and was dependable and always moving toward me,” she says. “It is still, 35 years later, the greatest gift of my life that God loves me and fights for me and shows me His love and presence.”

Her time at Dallas Theological Seminary (DTS) taught her a love of Bible exposition and missions. After graduating in 2007 with her Master of Theology, Rebecca took on an online teaching position at DTS in 2008. While maintaining this professional role, she grew a family over the years. Rebecca is married to Jared, with whom she shares four precious children (Elijah, Reagan, Caroline, and Levi) and one dog (Gretchen). When she is not cheering for her favorite sports (usually her kids’) team, you can find her building a playlist for her next family dance party or planning her dream vacation to Italy.


Ministry Coordinator

Steve Fults accepted the role of ruling elder at Fort Worth Presbyterian Church in 1996. He, along with the other elders, shepherd the congregation and their children. In addition to that service, Steve works as the financial secretary and ministry coordinator. He is responsible for the oversight of the flow of financial resources in and out of the church. As ministry coordinator, he coordinates all the ministries of the church. This involves committees, individuals, and events. Steve says, “I have a heart for people to find and/or grow in their faith and joy in the Lord Jesus Christ. I am able to utilize my organizational and spiritual gifts to encourage and move people to finding this greater faith and joy in word and deed.” (Galatians 5:6)

In his down time, Steve finds opportunities to enjoy his hobbies: reading, leatherwork, and traveling. He is nostalgic about Hill Street Blues and relaxes to folk music. And his favorite food? Steak and frosting (but not together). Steve is married to Terri; they share three children and two grandchildren.

“At FWPC, we emphasize that Christianity isn’t fundamentally about a list of rules but a relationship with the living God. This is a hospital for the sick not a showroom. We bring our brokenness and sin to Christ, and He gives us rest for our souls while giving us grace to follow Him.” (Matthew 11:28-30)


Director of Music Ministries

Since 2006, Jacob Tilton has served as the music director at Fort Worth Presbyterian Church. He plans and leads all music for worship services as well as directs the adult and children’s choirs. He says, “I love to get to work towards the enrichment and beautification of the church’s worship.” He has also worked alongside others in the church producing CD projects for the church’s worship and edification.

Jacob graduated from McNeese State University in Lake Charles, Louisiana with a bachelors degree in music education. He also uses his musical talents to teach and train students through private music lessons.

He and his wife Kerrie have three children.


Pastor to Youth

Phillip Maxwell joined the staff in July 2016 as the youth pastor. His primary role is to disciple the youth of the church to know and love God. Two aspects he deeply enjoys about being in ministry are learning people’s stories and seeing people grow in their love for one another. Phillip says that “walking with people in seeking comfort and hope teaches me daily who God is and who I am in Christ.”

One of Phillip’s favorite biblical narratives is Saul’s conversion in Acts, “because it shows how drastically God is willing—and does—change people in order to accomplish his purposes and share his joy with them.”

Some of Phillip’s role models are Saint Augustine, Roald Dahl, and Duane Allman. He enjoys listening to and playing music (the blues is his favorite), looking at art, watching football, motorcycling, working on cars, fixing things, cooking and eating new food, reading, conversation about history and politics, gardening, and playing basketball.

Prior to serving at FWPCA, Phillip was the Small Groups Coordinator for Park Cities Presbyterian Church in Dallas. He also ministered to college students at Mercer University in Macon, Georgia, where he was a Reformed University Fellowship intern. He has also worked as a tutor and life coach in Dallas public schools, and he owned and operated a pressure washing company for five years.

A native of Atlanta, Georgia, Phillip is married to Christina, and they are the parents of Jack and Eloise. He is a graduate of Southern Methodist University, where he studied Ancient and Medieval History, and Redeemer Seminary, where he earned a Master of Divinity degree.

Director of Kids Hope

After serving as the assistant nursery care coordinator, Barbara E. Rozanski accepted the position of Kids Hope director in July 2013. Barbara is the liaison for a mentoring program that matches members of Fort Worth Presbyterian Church with students attending Oakmont Elementary. She enjoys “living out what God calls me to do and reaping the joy and learning who the Lord really is during the process.”

While at University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC), Barbara worked on a degree in developmental psychology with a concentration in behavioral psychology and she uses her talents to encourage children and their families – a passion she has utilized from the onset of her career.

Barbara is married and has three children. You can find her exercising, cooking, writing, and reading in her spare time – and cheering on the Team USA swim team.

Our Denomination

In 1974, the Presbyterian Church of America (PCA) denomination began through the work of many ministers and lay people who were convicted that they could no longer carry out the work of the gospel in the denomination of which they were part. From its inception, the PCA has been committed to the Scriptures as the infallible word of God—Gods final word on all matters to which it speaks.

The PCA has from its inception been diligently committed to church planting and mission both in America and throughout the world. Our desire is to see this country and the nations changed by the precious good news of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Although begun primarily in the Southeast, the PCA has spread to almost every part of the Unites States. We continue in aggressive church planting in the U.S. and in the world. Our own Presbytery is a part of the Southwest Church Planting Network, which in the last 12 years has seen 100 churches and RUF ministries begun in the United States and abroad.

Our college campus ministry, RUF (Reformed University Ministries), began in the late 1970s (within the first years of our denomination’s existence) on the campuses of Mississippi Southern, Ole’ Miss, and Mississippi State, and is now on almost 150 campuses around the nation.
