After completing the major requirements for his Master of Divinity in 2005 he and his wife moved from Pensacola, Florida to Fort Lauderdale in order to start a church. On May 14, 2006 Fort Lauderdale Baptist Church opened its doors and has been reaching Fort Lauderdale for Jesus Christ ever since.

Pastor Price has a zeal for the Word of God both to know it and to preach it. His work doesn't end on Sunday though, he uses every day to reach those who have never heard the gospel and disciple those who know Christ as their savior. FLBC has had a passion for door-to-door evangelism and makes great effort to go out every day.
Pastor Price’s passion is to proclaim the Bible so that Christians will develop a greater love for God’s Word. His preaching is characterized by verse-by-verse exposition.
