Garrett Vickrey is senior pastor of Woodland Baptist Church in San Antonio.
- Where did you grow up?
Richardson, Texas, a Dallas suburb.
- What is your favorite verse, book or story in the Bible? Why?
1 John 4:1.
“Test the spirits.” It’s a common-sense reminder to a people that sometimes forget to use common sense in biblical interpretation. If someone seems holy and pious yet they’re a jerk, it’s not the Spirit of Christ guiding them.
- What is your favorite movie? Why?
Any movie accompanied by a box of Junior Mints.
- Who are three people you admire?
Dirk Nowitzki, NBA basketball player and 2011 Finals MVP; Harvey Cox; and Sharon Vickrey, my mom.
- What is one little-known fact about yourself?
I was the singer and guitarist in a band in college that sounded like a mix between Tom Petty and Radiohead (only with worse singing).
