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."

"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."
