John Dyer

Elder

John and his wife and have served in a variety of roles at IBC, from children’s ministry and youth group to singles and young adults. He currently serves as an usher in the 10:45 service.

John was born and raised in San Antonio, TX to two parents who introduced him to Jesus at a young age. One night at the age of 3 or 4, I asked my dad how to get to heaven, and he told me I could ask Jesus into my heart. During my middle school and high school years, my mom continued to nurture my faith, and a youth leader deepened my understanding of God and his word.

He graduated from Texas A&M University to study biochemistry and genetics in hopes of becoming a doctor, but he also volunteered with a church youth group and started working in technology. Looking back, he can see how God used those experiences to redirect his path to Dallas Theological Seminary.

After moving to Dallas, he started attending Irving Bible Church, where he met his wife, Amber, the true scholar and socialite of their family. They were married in 2005 and have been blessed with two bright and hilarious kids, Benjamin and Rebecca, who are in grade school.

John now works as a professor and dean at DTS, and loves seeing students from all ages and backgrounds decide they want to begin or deepen their ministries.

I have always appreciated the way the community of IBC balances the faithful teaching of scripture and the care of those around us. I hope my family and I can continue to be transformed so we can embody Christ’s love to the city around us.
