Steven Bell

Hello I’m Bro. Steven Bell and it is my privilege to serve Way of the Cross Baptist Church as the pastor. I began my journey as senior pastor on June 12, 2011. My family and I are very excited to begin this new phase in our Christian ministry! The Lord has blessed us so much.

I’ve been a part of this church since I was nine years old. God has blessed me with a wonderful wife Lynne and with three precious children Grace, Hudson, and Hannah. We live about 10 miles south of the church in Locust Grove. God has allowed me to serve in several capacities over the years. I have worked with our youth group and children’s ministries, served many years as the associate pastor and now God has blessed me with the privilege of serving as the senior pastor.

Most of the ministries that I was first involved in at our church involved our young people. I have a heart and passion for our youth. I was asked to oversee all of our youth ministries from nursery and children’s church all the way up through high school. I have been blessed with the best youth workers that help to fill all those positions to care of our young people and make my job easy. God has now placed me in the most amazing place as pastor of all these precious people here at Way of the Cross! It is always a blessing to preach to our people and try to help them from God’s Word.

It is my goal for our church to continue to grow and reach lost souls for the Lord. People need to be in a place where Jesus is lifted up and the people love each other. We would love to have you and your family come and visit and if the Lord leads you this way be a part of our church family. I’m so very excited about where the Lord is leading our church and I can’t wait to see what he is going to do here at Way of the Cross!

Love in Christ,

Bro. Steven Bell














In addition to the Pastor, our church leadership is supported with the help of deacons. We believe that there are some specific requirements set forth in Godís word for Deacons. Those requirements as well as other specific expectations of our church are outlined in our church by-laws.






Church Officers

To help support the Pastors and Deacons, we also have church officers. The offices of Treasurer and Assistant Treasurer serve as the keepers of our bank accounts and other financial church assets. They are responsible for paying the bills and other accounting responsibilities on behalf of the church. The remaining church officer is that of church clerk. The church clerk is responsible for corresponding with other churches and congregations regarding matters of membership as well as acting as the official secretary for the church
