Final Runge FBC
Take Root, Grow, Bear Fruit
505. Reiffert St. Runge, Texas 78151  |   830.239.4375

It is our prayer that you come to know the fullness of Christ in your life.  We believe there is nothing more important than having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ; not just because he delivers us from the punishment of sin, but also because he gives us the potential to live an abundant life.  The challenge is accepting the truth that God can provide you and your family with a much better life than you can provide for yourself.  Hard to believe?  Take a leap of faith and find out the truth for yourself!

We’re here to help people Take Root, Grow, and Bear Fruit.

Our Staff

Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to get people plugged into God and to equip believers for the work of the ministry.

Jon & Erin, Senior Pastor & Wife

As the primary teaching pastor, Jon has a passion for carefully unpacking the truths of Scripture and diagnosing the sinfulness of the human heart. He has served at Runge First Baptist Church as pastor since November 1, 2009. He and his wife have three boys, Christian, Pete and Jacob. Both Jon & Erin have a passion for seeing God’s work done throughout the world and know that Jesus can save anyone, anywhere, any time. They are very blessed to be serving God at Runge FBC and look forward to many more years of service in Runge.

Mark & LisaMark & Lisa, Youth Pastor & Wife

Mark and Lisa are a wonderful addition to our ministry.  They both have a passion to lead others to Christ and demonstrate God’s love through both words and action.  Their goal is to not only bring more students into the church, but also their parents.  They have served our church since February 2013 and have an excellent testimony of how God can take anyone from any walk of life and start using them for His glory and purpose.  Their passion is an inspiration to not only our youth and church but everyone they come in contact with.  It is with great privilege and pleasure that we have added them to our ministry team.

Blake & Ning, Worship Minister & Wife

The Bible has a lot to say about worship, which is why the music program is held so closely to our hearts here at Runge FBC.  Blake became our worship leader in March of 2017 and has a passion for leading every believer in the worship of their Lord.  While the Bible doesn’t specifically name worship as a Spiritual gift, we believe that Blake is spiritually equipped to lead worship.  This truth is made evident every time Blake rises to lead our church in worship.

Where do I fit in?

Often one of the hardest things to discover is where one fits in.  Whether you’re a fresh or seasoned believer of Jesus Christ, or if you are more of a skeptic regarding Christianity, we want to welcome you!  We believe that you need to be surrounded by people that you can not only relate to but will help lead you in the right direction.  There is a place for you and it’s our mission help you find it.

Wednesday Night Students Program

We begin training our youth from the time that they can understand about our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  We have an expanding program that demonstrates Christians’ love and service to children that takes place on Wednesday nights from 6:00 – 7:30 pm.  This program helps children to know that they are loved.  Also, it teaches them to memorize scripture and to comprehend it.  God is certainly working through this program and we are thankful to get to work alongside Him.

Men’s Ministry

Runge First Baptist Church has men who love and follow the Lord. Our Men’s Ministry gives the men in our church family special times of interaction. Our Men’s Ministry has a primary mission to give times of Bible study, prayer, accountability and ways to serve our community to the men of our church. These groups provide refreshing discipleship opportunities for the men in the church.

Sunday School

When it comes to deepening relationships, circles are better than rows.  Sunday school is our time to dig into God’s Word as a small group and discuss it in a personal and engaging way.  Currently, we offer classes for adults, Highschool/Junior High, and Elementary kids, but we are always adjusting to fit the needs of our class members. 
Our goal and purpose for the nursery is to provide a safe environment for infants & toddlers to eat, sleep, and grow.  We feel this is best accomplished by not only watching the children but interacting with them.  We screen our workers with thorough background checks to ensure that our parents know that their children are in the safest hands possible.
