Michael Weaver | Pastor (right) comes to us from the south side of Houston, moving to Brenham in 2009 where he immediately fell in love with “small town living." In Brenham, he met his wife Jennifer, a local Bellville Kindergarten teacher. Together they blended a beautiful family of four daughters - Camille, Jordan, Natalie, and Peyton.
Pastor Michael received his education in pastoral leadership at the College of Biblical Studies and continues to study Christian counseling through Liberty University. He believes that sharing the gospel of Christ does not end on Sundays, but is about reaching all levels of the community every day. "My family and I are blessed to be a part of this wonderful community and look forward to many years of serving both the city of Bellville and its citizens."
Jake Mayfield | Associate Pastor (left) and his wife, Michelle, are Bellville natives. They moved "back home" after a six-year stint in Belton where they both attended the University of Mary-Hardin Baylor. Jake graduated with a B.B.A in Management in 2011. Michelle graduated with her R.N. in 2023. They have four wonderful children: Karter, Charlotte, Valerie, & Ryker. The Mayfields enjoy beach getaways, all things Tex-Mex, and lazy Sunday afternoons.
Called to ministry in high school, Jake aims daily to serve and lead others in every aspect of his life. "My desire is to see individuals, families, and communities changed by the power of the gospel." He loves being a part of God's story of grace in helping others to "see and savor" Jesus - especially in corporate worship and preaching.
