SPENCER TEAL | PASTOR
Spencer is the founding pastor of Red Stone Church in Johnson City, which he and his wife Nicole planted in 2013. Nicole is a beautiful gift of grace to his life and recently celebrated 15 years of marriage.
Spencer is a minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ and is convinced of its transformation power on the souls of sinful man. Spencer’s been in ministry since 2001 and earned his Masters in Divinity from Southern Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky.
Spencer enjoys listening to new bands, watching Georgia football, cooking for Taco Tuesday, and competition. Yes, simple competition.
Spencer also enjoys playing in a fierce kickball league in his front yard. He competes against his 6 amazing children and is currently boasting a record of 1-14 (he is out numbered, don’t forget). Kennedy, McKibben, Arwyn, Oliver, Alistair, and Augustine delight his every day.
He longs to see the people of Johnson City believe in Christ Jesus and have their lives transformed by Him.
JERRY WILLIAMS | ELDER
Jerry is an elder at Red Stone Church (he's the taller & balder of the two current elders) and has served as Head of School for Providence Academy in Johnson City for the past 20 years. He and Cammy are celebrating 25 years of marriage this year. 25 years of bliss and not one argument yet. That last part is not exactly true, but they really have been wonderful years. They can't wait for the next 25!
Jerry and Cammy have 4 children, ranging in ages from 10 to 23: Caleb, Kyler, Kilby & Kolbi...and Cujo (not a child). Jerry's absolute favorite thing to do is to go out to eat or go to Pigeon Forge with the whole family, especially when the laughter raises to the level of almost getting them kicked out of a restaurant. His greatest challenge each day is to call his children by their correct names.
The Word of God has been used by the Lord to completely transform Jerry's life, so he's passionate about getting others to dig into the Word as well. He believes that if you'll dive into the Word in search of the Living Christ that He will be found and you'll never be the same.
Jerry is excited about all that the Lord is doing at Red Stone Church and believes that the Lord is going to raise up a generation of Christian leaders from this body of believers.
