Russell Bryan

Senior Pastor

Pastor Russell and his family came to FBC Kemp in Oct. 2009, two months before graduating from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary with a Masters of Divinity. Although a native of Alabama, Russell and his wife Michele (also an alumnus of SWBTS) enjoy living in Texas.

His heart beats for missions, evangelism, and quality ministry that exalts the Lord and enables others to grow in their relationship with Christ. His desire is to see the church simply be biblical. In doing so, others will come to know Christ, the church will mature in its faith, and the world around it and beyond will be changed. Russell is an avid aviation enthusiast, outdoorsman, and sports fan. He and Michele have one son.


Charles & Patricia King

Music Minister & Pianist

Charles King and his wife Patricia joined the staff of FBC Kemp in June 2008 after faithfully serving in several churches around Cedar Creek Lake. Charles brings a plethora of experience to FBC as minister of music. Patricia, who is the church instrumentalist, is also a music teacher for Kaufman Christian School. They both desire to honor the Lord in all that they do as they serve here at FBC Kemp.

Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord.

 – Psalm 150:6


Robin Reedy

Children’s Minister
Robin’s love for children was demonstrated long ago as she began her career as a public school teacher. After twenty-five years experience with Kemp ISD she now joins us in 2017 with a vision for bringing boys and girls into a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. We appreciate the love that she and husband Elmer have for others here at First Baptist, and for their continued service. 

Jeanette Poe

Jeanette is a hard working lady who desires to honor God in all that she does. She has been a self-employed bookkeeper for over 30 years. While seeking to follow the Lord she discovered her organizational skills and record keeping could be used to honor God and His Church.  First Baptist is thankful for her leadership in the stewardship of our church finances.

The work Leslie performs is important to the overall ministry here at First Baptist Kemp. She desires to use her organizational and communication skills to assist staff and church members alike. She and husband Steven have been members at First Baptist since 2004.
