About Russell Johnson

Russell Johnson and his wife Terri have been married for 24 years. They met at Hardin-Simmons University, and Russell is also a graduate of Dallas Theological Seminary. Russell and Terri have five children, Milton (12th grade), Caleb (10th grade), Noel (8th grade), and twins Kenneth and Douglas (5th grade).

Russell and Terri love watching their kids' activities, from ball games to choir concerts. If Russell is not in the stands watching or on the bench coaching, you can find him in a deer blind or on the couch cheering on the Dallas Cowboys! As native Texans, you can probably guess that Russell and Terri also love good BBQ Brisket.

Russell is called by God to preach His Word first and foremost. Preaching and teaching God's word is a weighty task, and it is one that he does not take lightly. Along with preaching, Russell feels called to shepherd people through their highest highs and their lowest lows. Russell believes greater joy comes from watching someone apply God's Word and seeing their life changed.


Meet-and-Greet With the Johnsons

We'd like to invite you to a meet-and-greet reception with Russell and his wife Terri following second service. Pick up your kids, and then meet us in the foyer to say hello to our new Lead Teaching Pastor.

March Giving Challenge

Although we are excited about the current season of Faith Bible Church, we are also dealing with a difficult financial season. Our amazing ministry leaders have worked hard to cut their budgets for the next operating year; however, inflation has still increased our overall budget by a significant amount.

Instead of making drastic changes with ministry budgets or personnel, we have decided to move forward in faith, asking the church to step up so we can continue the exciting ministry work God has called us to do. For the remainder of this month, we are going to challenge our church in three areas:

1. Start Giving - If you are not currently giving financially, please pray about stepping out in faith and starting to give.
2. Give a One-Time Gift - Pray about giving a one-time gift in March to help us meet the current budget deficit.
3. Increase Recurring Gift - If you are currently giving, please pray about increasing your recurring gift for the next fiscal year.

You can participate in the March Giving Challenge by giving online with Pushpay or by placing cash or checks in the boxes near the doors on the inside of the Worship Center. We can't wait to see how God will provide through your generosity!

How to Survive and Prosper During Inflationary Times

Inflation is at one of the highest points in the last 40 years. What is inflation, why does it happen, and how long will it last? We will discuss the cause and effect of inflation, and the management of resources to survive and prosper during uncertain economic times, such as the ones we are currently experiencing. Join us for this important conversation this evening, Sunday, March 26 from 5-6:30pm in the multi-purpose room (next to the gym). Childcare is available with registration, and hors d'oeuvres will be served.

Child Dedication

As a church, we want to love children on His behalf, and to come alongside parents to support and equip them to be the spiritual leader in their home.

Our next child dedication will be on Mother's Day, Sunday, May 14, during both services. We'd love for your family to be a part of it!
