About Justin

I was born and raised in San Antonio.  My dad was a pastor and church planter, and from the earliest age I can remember I have grown up in the church. (and, when I say “in” the church, I mean literally “in” the church building)  By the grace of God, I came to know and follow Jesus at an early age, and I am so grateful for that.

I am also grateful to have met my wife at an early age.  Candace and I were married when we were twenty years old, and I am grateful that God has brought us together early in life’s journey. We now have three boys together.

God used my love for music to serve the church.  I became a worship leader when I was fifteen, and was able to serve in several churches until eventually we moved to Fort Worth to accept a position as a worship pastor for a church in north Fort Worth.

After serving in worship ministry for 6 years, I began to feel like God was leading me to begin to prepare myself to teach and pastor, and so I began studies at Midwestern Bible College in Kansas City, MO.  While completing my undergraduate degree, I had the opportunity to help plant a new church in Kansas City. Those years taught me so much, and it was through that experience that God gave me a passion for church planting.  After seeing what God did through this church plant, I began to dream of what God could do in my own home city through church planting.

From Kansas City, we moved to Dallas, TX to complete my studies at Dallas Theological Seminary. I began to believe more than ever that God was calling me to plant a church in north-central San Antonio, and so I continued to prepare.  Through all of those years of study, I had continued to serve the church as a worship pastor and I had the privilege of serving on some of the most incredible staffs and teams who have challenged me and shaped my ministry more than they even realized.

In January 2014, God provided the opportunity for us to begin turning a dream to plant a church into a reality.  We moved back to San Antonio after nearly a decade, and we quickly began to see that God had already been preparing people to join the team.  A little over a year later, God had brought some incredible people together, and Stone Oak Bible Church began to take form.

My dream for Stone Oak Bible Church is that we will never lose our passion for the gospel of Jesus, and for sharing that passion with our community.  For us, this means that we will be a church who continually equips and sends people out on gospel-centered mission in their own communities, and that we will continually plant churches who do the same.

 

Five Books that I Suggest:

  • “Mere Christianity” C.S. Lewis
  • “Taking God at His Word” Kevin DeYoung
  • “The Power of Habit” Charles Duhigg
  • “The Cost of Discipleship” Dietrich Bonhoeffer
  • “Morning and Evening” Charles Haden Spurgeon

Craig Curtis

Associate Pastor / Elder
Let me start with this: I’m not a native Texan. If you are still reading then well done! I am born and raised in south-central Missouri. I grew up in the heart of the Ozark mountains, and miss that scenery. I have grown up in the Church. From my first Sunday on this Earth, my parents had me in Church. It was what I have always known as normal. I am grateful for this upbringing now. Because I grew up within the Church I had some great teachers throughout my life that have shown me the great wonders of God[…]

 

 

About Craig

Let me start with this: I’m not a native Texan. If you are still reading then well done! I am born and raised in south-central Missouri. I grew up in the heart of the Ozark mountains, and miss that scenery. I have grown up in the Church. From my first Sunday on this Earth, my parents had me in Church. It was what I have always known as normal. I am grateful for this upbringing now. Because I grew up within the Church I had some great teachers throughout my life that have shown me the great wonders of God.

At the age of 5; somehow, someway, God gripped my heart. My theology wasn’t deep, but I came to understand that there was a God and He loved me. Looking at a 5 year old now, I have no idea how they could possibly understand what salvation means, but God chose at that point in my life to make himself known.

After a period of uncertainty, and indecisiveness, God revealed himself to me again, and placed a passion and desire within my heart of making the Gospel known. It was during this time I sought out some wise council, and decided to pursue my education. This brought me to Kansas City. While in Kansas City I was able to persuade a beautiful girl from back home to marry me. Together we joined a Church plant in Kansas City, and fell in love with the newness and freshness of it.

After Kansas City, I felt God guiding me to continue my education. After looking at some different schools I eventually settled on Dallas Theological Seminary. We moved as a family in the heat of the summer; not the best time to move to Texas by the way. After two years of devoting myself to my studies, and sweating every minute, I graduated with a Masters degree in Christian Education. My plan was then to apply for jobs as an Associate Pastor, or Discipleship Pastor. My hope was to move back towards Missouri. My wife, Wendi, and I had our first child, Grayson, and the grandparents really wanted us closer as well.

After a year and a half of applying, and getting rejected, and applying some more, and getting rejected some more, and applying, and applying… Things didn’t look to good for me. I didn’t understand what God’s plan was. I felt like I had done my part, and God was now supposed to do His. He was supposed to give me this fabulous job, and it just wasn’t happening. I received a call one day from Justin. He told me about the possibility of planting a Church in San Antonio, TX.

San Antonio? Isn’t that Mexico? Further away from Missouri and family? I said “No Thanks!” to Justin without actually saying those words. The next day a job opened up at a local Christian school in San Antonio where I would teach my favorite book of the Bible (Acts), and my favorite subject (Church History). Wendi and I moved to San Antonio in June of 2012 (once again, don’t move in Texas during the summer!). We soon after moving here fell in love with this city and it’s people. We have since added one to our family when our daughter Charlie was born in 2014.

My dream and hopes for Stone Oak Bible are to be a Church that is constantly striving after Christ. I want to be a people who are constantly growing more like Him, and sharing this love and passion of Christ with those who are far off. My love within the Church is the process of discipleship through the many different Community Groups.

 

Three books I suggest:

“The Deliberate Church” -Mark Dever

“The Christian Ministry” -Charles Bridges

“Church History in Plain Language” -Bruce Shelley

In December 2012 we were blessed with a daughter, Lorelei. She has blessed our lives immensely. In April 2015, Easter Day, we were blessed once again with our second daughter, Gillian & our love grew beyond words.

I have a Bachelors Degree in Music Education from the University of Texas at San Antonio. I am certified to teach K-12 Music & taught as an Elementary Music Specialist for 7 years in NEISD. Music is something I have always had a passion for, and  it was a joy & privilege to share that passion with my kids at school & instill a love of music in them. I believe every child is musical & having the gift of music will carry them through many of life’s journeys. I have also been a member of many choirs & small vocal ensembles in my life: from middle school, to high school, to college,  and becoming a member of the San Antonio Mastersingers, the San Antonio Symphony choir, after college for several years. I decided to take a break when I was pregnant with my first daughter & look forward to joining again in the future. Music is something I’m extremely passionate about & fill my life with.

My heart for Stone Oak Bible Children’s Ministry is to introduce God’s love at early age so they know Him & carry Him with them through their journey in life. To teach them He is always with them & His love for them is never failing.

I’m a San Antonio native and die hard Spurs fan. My dad is retired Air Force and my mom is a teacher. From very early on in my life, church has been a constant. I definitely see this as a good thing now, but there was a time when I probably thought the opposite. I got serious about my faith as a teenager.

I’ve loved singing for as long as I can remember. You may have heard of me; I starred in many a church Christmas pageant circa 1995-2000, usually typecast as a Joseph instead of one of the more interesting characters. Anyway, I moved on to church choir when I was 12 and never looked back. I picked up the guitar at around 15 (I think to impress girls?) and started writing songs shortly thereafter. At around 19, I decided I didn’t really want to do anything else and got serious about playing music. After a few years of playing shows and making records, I decided to move to the great big city of Chicago to continue pursuing music, leading worship in churches along the way.
This past October, after 3 cold years in Chicago, I decided to come back home for tacos and bluebonnets. I’ll be recording my third album this Summer.
My whole experience is shaped by my belief in Jesus and the journey I’m on following him. I’m so grateful to be able to write and perform songs for people who share a similar experience and for people who don’t. I’m so grateful to be able to lead fellow believers in worship on Sundays. I’m stoked about Stone Oak Bible Church and can’t wait to see where God takes us.

About LeeAnne

My husband and I moved to San Antonio in 2014.  I grew up in a suburb of Dallas, Coppell, and traveled west to Ft Worth for my undergrad. Go FROGS!!  After finishing at TCU I went on staff with Young Life in Costa Rica.  I served students and families within the international school setting.  Through this experience I developed a further desire to intentionally walk alongside those who are struggling and in need of help.  After my adventures in Costa Rica I returned to Dallas and received a MA in Biblical Counseling from Dallas Theological Seminary in 2009.

In the Dallas area I worked as a Licensed Professional Counselor within various settings, including drug and alcohol treatment center, Buckner International, and private practice.  I specialized in working with adolescents, young adults, women and families.  My passion is to help and support those who are hurting and searching for change.

My husband, Michael, and I got married in 2010.   We have two precious little boys that keep us busy and on our toes every day.  We love living in San Antonio and being a part the Stone Oak community.

The women’s ministry at Stone Oak Bible Church exists to connect women to deep biblical community, to equip them to grow, serve and gather regularly, as we desire to know Christ more and to make Him known. Our prayer for the women of Stone Oak Bible Church is that we would walk in a manner pleasing to God, imitating Christ’s humility, gentleness and patience, by His grace, bearing with one another in love, and that we would be united by the Spirit in the hope of the gospel.  (Ephesians 4:1-3).

I was raised in a “churchian” family.  We went to church but no relationship with the living God until we had two major events happened.  My grandfather was shot and then a year later I had a sister die of a congenital heart defect.  Our family at that time stopped going to church.  For the next 12 years I was continued to be raised in a family with an outward christian morality without Christ.

When I was 19, I started questioning my father’s philosophy of life.  You go to school, to get a job, get married so that you can raise your family to do the  same thing.  I said that there had to be something more to life than this.  I started reading the Bible and found out who Christ was, but did not see if of being any importance to me.

I prayed that if God were real, where would He reveal Himself to me?  I was prompted to go into the Air Force.  At the same time my younger brother went into the Navy.  He came down with double pneumonia.  My father called me one night and said that the doctors gave my brother a less than 10% to make it through the night.

After crying and asking God why him.  I felt that I was being asked by God; if I were the one to die and come before Him, why should I be let into heaven.  I had no answer.  I did not smoke, I did not drink, I was morally straight (as the Boy Scouts would say).  But I also knew that this would not get me into heaven.  I opened one of the dusty Bibles we had in the house and Isaiah 26:3 was there – You will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on Thee, because he trusts in Thee.  I knew that this peace, this trusting was in Jesus Christ from what I had remembered from the Bible.

That night I put my trust in Christ.  My brother after 6 months was discharged from the hospital.  I went into the military and became involved with a group of men that were associated with a group called the Navigators.    As I studied the Bible with them, I came to realize that they had something that I did not have, a quality that could be seen but not defined.  Someone shared with me the principle of Matthew 6:33 – Seek ye first the kingdom of God and all these things shall be added to you.  I realized that although I had trusted in Christ I was still pursuing things.

At that time I decided that if I was going to pursue Christ I would pursue Him fully.  As I spent time in the Word and Prayer and listening to other believers.  Someone shared that there are only three things that last forever and if we are invested in anything other than those three things, those other things will perish.  The three things that last forever are:  God, His Word, and the souls of man.

So for the last few years I have been pursuing those three things.  I went to nursing school and became a registered nurse.  So I have learned how to serve those in need.  Our family moved to Hawaii to work with the Navigators in setting up Bible Studies at Hickman Air Force Base.  We moved back to San Antonio to pursue an advanced degree in nursing, in which God closed the door.  I have become a nurse specialist (you can ask me what I do, but I do not want to go in detail here).  Our family has grown out of the nest and are serving the Lord in different areas.

I have served in different churches in different capacities, including being an elder at another Evangelical Free Church for 8+ years.  As a last note, my desire is to continue to pursue the three things that last forever.  While studying the Word several years ago a verse came up, that summarizes what I would like to be a verse to model the rest of my life after:  John 6:68 – Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom shall we go?  You have the words of eternal life.  We have come to believe and know that you are the Holy One of God.”  As I believe this to be true, what else can I do but continue following and to invite others?

My name is Marc Feole, I was born and raised in Grand Rapids Michigan, although my family was Catholic i was not raised in a church or near a church for the most part until I was sixteen.

Three or four events and people in life helped me come to know Jesus as my Lord and savior, and in general saved my life from what was an “interesting” childhood due to many bad decisions by adults in my life.

– A babysitter for reasons I’ll never know read to us from the Bible (The book of Ruth).

– A grade school buddy took me to church for a few weeks and I was able to go to Awana (until my mother put a stop to that) and he gave me my first Bible which I somehow still have through 17 moves. Although I would not become a Christian for 8 or 9 years I; by the grace of God have kept that Bible. As a side note 42 years later I was able to find that friend and tell him that he was part of the reason I was now a Christian man, father, husband, and grandfather. Tell people about Jesus, you may never know that you helped them! My friends name is Matt, Thanks Matt! My old Blue Bible is still with me!

– My Mum (my stepmother) married my father and helped him to be introduced to Christ, and then when I moved in with them within 6 months and a number of events I professed my faith in Jesus Christ as a sixteen year old. Thank you Mum!!

– Lastly I had a very patient Bible teacher in the 9th grade who had to hand write every lesson all year long for this unchurched kid. Another lesson for all when I think back to Mr. Moes; would i have been that patient with a kid like me? Thank the Lord for Mr. Moes!

Which brings me to Nancy Jean, my wife of 35 years. You all know her and love her, but to me she is so much more! Yes she is a great lady, a fantastic committed to the Lord Christian, a wonderful mother and grandmother, BUT she has loved me for 35 years and that is a gift from God. Thank you Nancy for being who you are, for loving the Lord, for being patient, for being a great mother and for some reason picking me.

When I became a Christian i immediately knew how great this was and although life has had many twists a tuns in the near 40 years since that time I have always known one thing. Jesus has never let go of me, he loves me now and he loves me always. I am passionate about many things for Christ and they are all his gifts.

– Learn his word, study always and when no one is looking, do it every day.

– Pray, pray more, pray every day, you get to personally speak to God with no barrier, he knows all, he is never surprised, he always loves you as a Christian (of course not our sin).

– Raise your family as a 7 day a week parent, its the most important legacy (after being a Christian and your relationship with your spouse) that you will ever leave on this earth. That is our 1st mission field if you are parents.

– Work hard on your marriage, It’s great, but because it is important, that means is should be hard work to be good at having a loving solid growing marriage.

I will say that my passion is to grow 1st my relationship with the Lord, then my marriage and family, but then it really comes down to am I as a Christian (not perfect) helping grow disciples of Christ? We all have been given gifts, use them, you’re not perfect, but Christ is. Look to him, learn from him, share him the best you know how.

My life story and relationship with God is not the typical one you might expect to see, but it is a testimony about God’s love and faithfulness.  It is also an example of God’s sovereignty in action, how he use his servants according to his will and at his chosen time (not mine, a loved one’s, or anyone else).

About Dan

My life story and relationship with God is not the typical one you might expect to see, but it is a testimony about God’s love and faithfulness.  It is also an example of God’s sovereignty in action, how he use his servants according to his will and at his chosen time (not mine, a loved one’s, or anyone else). I have intentionally written my testimony so that those who struggle in their walk with Jesus might know how their imperfect brothers and sisters have experienced similar periods of difficulty.  Just remember God is faithful to those who trust and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ.  Stay in the Word, in Prayer, and with your faith Community and the Lord will assuredly lead you to greener pastures.

This is my testimony. I was blessed to be raised in a church going family who taught their children the Gospel message.  I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior in my early teen years. I spent the formative years of my youth growing up in a city many people could only dream about, San Diego, CA. In between the days body surfing at the beach and in the gym playing competitive basketball at the high school and college levels, I managed to attain a Bachelor degree in Economics and a Master degree in Financial Accounting from San Diego State University.  It was during this time I met my wife to be, Karen, a follower of Christ while working in Yellowstone National Park.   I began my career in public accounting, becoming a certified public accountant and then working my way quickly through the ranks to become an executive at two of the largest companies in the world.

I tell you this, because like many others, my walk with the Lord was severely tested in my college years and during my search for success at work. At that time, pride, the search for power in the corporate world, self-reliance, etc. all became serious issues that distracted me from my life with my Lord Jesus Christ. Quite frankly it was a time of great personal achievement, but also a period of darkness where my life remained hollow and lacked the joy that should have been there.   However, Praise God that He is faithful to his people and that He placed the Holy Spirit, loving Christians and convicting trials in my path. These people and events shepherded me back to a life of reliance on and service to our Lord and Savior. My search for the grace of God and love of Jesus converged in a trio of trials (health, work, and marriage) that drove me to a Bible study being offered at our church in the mid-1990s. I am sure it was no coincidence that Ecclesiastes was the book the Lord faithfully put in my path.  You could say it was my “Ecclesiastes-moment.” Solomon in his waning years had it right and there it was, the Lord’s wisdom handed to me on a platter.

“Then I considered all that my hands had done and the toil I had expended in doing it, and behold, all was vanity and a striving after wind, and there was nothing to be gained under the sun”  Ecclesiastes  2:11

“For to the one who pleases him, God has given wisdom and knowledge and joy, but to the sinner he has given the business of gathering and collecting, only to give to one who pleases God. This also is vanity and a striving after wind.”  Ecclesiastes 2:26

Karen my loving wife, continually supported me, remaining a faithful servant of the Lord during my time of struggle.  Led by the Holy Spirit, she walked faithfully beside me until I could no longer live without Christ back in my life.  Since then my wife and I have walked faithfully together with the Lord, actively attending and serving in our local Evangelical Free Church for past 20 years in Laguna Hills, California.  We recently moved to San Antonio and I have had the pleasure of serving at StoneOak Bible church and meeting some of the nicest and humblest servants of Jesus. I love to worship and serve the Lord with all of you in the church. I would encourage you, if you do not   already serve, to jump in to a ministry wherever the Spirit is guiding you. Karen and I have, and we never regret serving in what might seem like even the most mundane task.  There is nothing ever trivial about serving the Lord Jesus Christ. I hope my gifts of hospitality, financial management and information systems will serve the Lord and the church well.  Karen and I are committed to humbly seeking and serving the Lord. It is my prayer that our deeds and actions will be a beacon of God’s light in our community and that these actions will continually glorify his name.  May God Bless you.
