About Pastor John Collis

John grew up in Hagerman, New Mexico and graduated from High School in 1979.

While attending Seminary, John served as the Youth and Education Minister for Bethel Baptist Church in Roswell, New Mexico. Upon graduation in 1997, John became the pastor of FBC, White Deer. In 2003, John moved his family to Ozona, Texas to become the pastor of the First Baptist Church. In 2008, John became our Pastor here at Hunt Baptist Church.
John has been married to his wife, Layne, since 1981. They have three children, Trey, Tate and his wife, Becca, and daughter Trinity.

“I am absolutely thrilled God has allowed me the opportunity to live in the Hill Country and to serve as Pastor of Hunt Baptist Church. The sincere desire of our congregation is to love God and others with all of our heart and to encounter the risen Savior, Jesus Christ, at every opportunity. If you are looking for a perfect church, Hunt Baptist is not it. But if you are looking for a church family who will love you unconditionally, care for you deeply, pray for you continually, and embrace you wholeheartedly, I invite you to give Hunt Baptist a visit.”

In Christ’s love,
Pastor John Collis
