Senior Pastor Bart Lipscomb
Bart grew up in south Alabama and was brought to saving faith at a young age, for which he is eternally grateful. During his time at Auburn University, the Lord laid on his heart a call to pastoral ministry through the influence of his local church. He went on to earn a Master of Divinity from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and has also had the joy of attending the Sovereign Grace Pastor’s College. Bart and his wife, Jessica were married in 2006. They have 3 children and one very happy lab. He enjoys college football on Saturday afternoons and cold mornings in the deer stand.
Founding Pastor Dan Schiel (retired)
Born and raised in Montgomery County, Texas, Dan was called to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ at age 20 and has served as pastor in independent churches for the past forty years. At age 48, he resigned his pastorate in Midland, TX, where he had served for nine years, to move to Point Roberts, WA, to attend Regent College, a seminary in Vancouver, B.C. Canada, where he earned a Master’s degree in 1997. In November of that year, he and his wife Grace Ellen returned to Conroe, TX, to assume the pastorate of Christ Church on League Line Road, a church he had founded twenty years earlier. His focus in ministry is to help his congregation live contemplatively, paying attention to God at work in their lives, and to live in response to Him. Pastor Dan retired early in 2021.
