Johnny Teague | Senior Pastor
Dr. Johnny Teague joined Church at the Cross on September 11, 2005 as the Senior Pastor. A native of Glen Rose,Texas, Johnny accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Savior at age 12 in 1975 at Latham Springs Baptist Camp. He graduated from Glen Rose High School and then went on to Tarleton State University where he graduated with his Bachelors of Science in Mathematics and a Bachelors of Business Administration in Accounting. He received his Masters of Business Administration from the University of Houston.
Pastor Johnny’s education continued in ministry as he completed a Masters of Divinity with Biblical Languages from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Ft. Worth, Texas. He most recently completed his Doctorate work with an emphasis on Expositional Preaching at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
In 1997, Johnny surrendered to the Lord’s call to preach in Beaumont Texas at Calvary Baptist Church. He went on to become the Pastor at Calvary Baptist Church in Weimar, Texas in 1999, and served there for over six years before being called to be Senior Pastor of Church at the Cross.
Johnny has a wonderful family with his wife, Lori and two daughters Brittany and Kate. His beautiful family is an inspiration to him in all that he does. He has three main hobbies. First, he runs a farm and ranch near his home town of Glen Rose, Texas. Second, he loves to travel, having been to all 50 states and over 12 countries. His third hobby is studying Presidential history. He has visited the homes and graves of every U. S. President and is constantly reading biographies on every U.S. President.
Johnny is most passionate about preaching God’s Word and reaching the lost for the Lord Jesus Christ. He is currently preaching through every book in the Bible. Our church motto falls in line with his passions – “To Know Him, and To Make Him Known”.
