Garrett Hager

Minister of Discipleship & Facilities

Garrett is a native of Bangs, TX, where he grew up and graduated High School.  He attended Texas A&M University and was commissioned a Second Lieutenant in May 2001 through the ROTC program.  He met his wife, formerly Sarah Osborn, in Virginia at his first duty station and they married a year later.

During his career, Garrett and Sarah were stationed all over the continental U.S. and Hawaii.  Garrett held numerous jobs in his fields of Aviation Maintenance and Program Management.  He deployed with his unit to Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2004.

In 2020, Garrett felt the Lord calling him to retire and pursue full-time ministry.  In 2021, he and his family moved back to Bangs, where he and Sarah both served in their local church (Sarah as the children’s minister) for 2 years until God opened the door for FBC Cove.

Regardless of where he and Sarah lived, their hearts for serving the Lord and his people through the local church was always a top priority and calling.  Some of the ministries that Garrett has served in include leading multiple Sunday School classes and small groups for young married couples, serving/leading in the praise band, teaching pre-teen classes, helping in VBS and summer camp retreats, serving on the numerous committees, and serving as a Deacon.

He has a heart for discipleship and small groups and understands how important they are in the life of a believer.  He and his family are excited to be part of the FBC Cove family!

His hobbies include: family game/movie nights, grilling, playing golf, drinking coffee, and having people over for dinner.

He and Sarah have five children: Sydney (18), Ethan (16), Sophie (12), Annsley (12), and Hadley (11).
