Plantersville Baptist Church is pleased to announce the conclusion of a pastoral search that lasted for more than one year. On Sunday, November 25th, 2018, Pastor Jack M. Redfearn, Jr. was unanimously selected by secret ballot by members of Plantersville Baptist Church as our permanent Pastor. Brother Jack had been visiting and preaching at the church for several months.
Brother Jack served 34 years as senior pastor in Southern Baptist churches. He spent 19 years as senior pastor of West Hartselle Baptist Church in Hartselle, Alabama. He and his wife Lisa have been married for 44 years and have 3 adult children in both Texas and Alabama.
Brother Jack served in the US Marine Corps from 1975 – 1979. He served in Europe and the Mediterranean, and he and Lisa lived in Okinawa, Japan from 1978 – 1979.
His Bachelor of Arts degree is from Luther Rice Seminary in Jacksonville, Florida. His Bachelor of Ministry is from Brewton Parker Baptist College in Mount Vernon, Georgia, and his graduate work includes a Master’s degree in Theological Studies from Southwestern Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas. Pastor Redfearn is also currently employed as a Bereavement Coordinator and Chaplain with Kindred Hospice, the largest provider of hospice care in the nation.
If you would like to experience a loving community of Christians in which to grow and serve under a dynamic pastor, please consider visiting Plantersville Baptist Church. It is one of the oldest – if not the oldest - churches in Texas that is still worshipping in the original building.
Many rural churches are losing members. Plantersville Baptist is growing and expanding its ministry in our community, which has become incorporated and will grow with the change of freeways and commerce that will soon impact our area. You are encouraged to come and grow with us.
We are blessed to have Bro.Jack Redfearn as our Pastor. He and Lisa are such a welcomed addition to our church family.
