Elvin Porflit plans, directs and oversees the worship ministries of the church including the Sanctuary Choir, Praise Team, Orchestra, Children's Choirs, Senior Adult Choir, ensembles, and congregational worship. He also directs the technical media ministries, which include sound, lighting, graphics, and television, and oversees this website. Elvin grew up in El Paso and previously served as the Choral Director of Jefferson High School. He and his wife Juli, along with their daughter Noelle and son Jordan, are long-time members of First Baptist Church. Elvin has served as the worship leader at a number of local churches including Apollo Heights Baptist Church, Coronado Baptist Church, St. Mark’s Methodist Church, and Immanuel Baptist Church. In addition, Elvin led the contemporary service of our church from 1998-2003. He graduated from the University of Texas El Paso with a Bachelors in Music Education in 1994.
The church offers contemporary worship with praise singers and praise band for the 9am worship each Sunday and interested participants are always encouraged. A more traditional style is enjoyed in the 11:15am worship each week, with full choir and orchestra. First Baptist also enjoys the musical leadership of several ensembles, children's choirs, and a senior adult choir. In addition to numerous special programs throughout the year, the Worship Ministry also presents a Living Christmas Tree program at the holiday season, now for over 50 years.
