Who We Are

We are a body of believers in southern Johnson County who seek to glorify God by making disciples for Christ. We have been blessed to call seven faithful men as pastors, five serving the local church and two as foreign missionary pastors.

Pastors

We believe that pastors are charged by God with the responsibility to serve as shepherds under Jesus Christ in His church. Their responsibility, as laid out in scripture, is to shepherd, guide, and protect the flock. As overseers, they are to superintend, guard, and provide directive care for the church. As elders, they are to manage, lead, represent, and govern the church. The care that these men show for God’s people is primarily spiritual.

God has blessed Countryside with a group of pastors who are faithful to their God-given call. We are thankful for them and for the grace God has shown in their lives.
