Meet Our Pastor

Pastor Johnnie is not the usual run-of-the-mill Baptist Pastor…and we like him that way.

He was just a-year-old when his Father, Dr. C. B. Wallace, started the church. Pastor Johnnie often says, "I know every nail in this church…I personally hammered many of them."

He studied Bible at Arlington Baptist University, North Texas Baptist College, Baptist Christian University, and Rocky Mountain Baptist College where he received his Doctor of Divinity.

He studied psychology at Texas Christian University (TCU) and Brite Divinity (TCU). He proudly proclaims, "I bleed purple."

At the age of twelve, he was a professional magician touring the country performing, Throughout his teenage years he spent his summers holding Vacation Bible Schools with Gospel Magic seeing as many as two-thousand come to salvation each year. By the age of fifteen, he was actively involved in holding revivals around the country.

He is an avid golfer and loves riding his motorcycle.Dr. Wallace also studied Interior Design at TCU and was formerly licensed as an Interior Designer by the Texas State Board of Architecture.

Even though he is a passionate student of Greek and Hebrew, his messages are simple and uplifting. His favorite Sunday Morning Worship expression is, "I want to give you something to face next week with."
