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.
