Monty and Kimberly Waldron moved to Murfreesboro, TN, in August of 2000, sent by Fellowship Bible Church of Little Rock, AR, to begin a new ministry. In January 2001, a few small gatherings were held to explore the vision for a Fellowship Bible Church in Rutherford County. By God’s grace, Fellowship Bible Church held its first public worship gathering in October 2001 at a Murfreesboro day care! One year later, God opened the door to meet in what would be their church home for the next twelve years, Blackman Middle School.
In June 2004, Jeff Patton joined Monty as a second teaching pastor and teammate in ministry. Together, they began cultivating the community of faith and its leadership that is fulfilling the mission of Fellowship today. Another defining moment in the history of this church was its move from Blackman Middle School to their Veterans Parkway campus in 2014. They call it “Common Ground for Connected Lives,” and this custom tool for the mission has enabled the church to significantly expand its influence inside and outside their community of faith. The team at Fellowship Bible Church are grateful for God's kindness and generosity toward them.
Fellowship Bible Church has seen the blessings of health and growth for the majority of their life as a church and now they are ready to take the next step in, Lord-willing, ensuring more of both for the next ten years plus.
Fellowship Bible Church is taking the significant step of inviting their very first Director of Ministry Operations onto a healthy team as complement to the leadership of Pastor's Monty Waldron & Jeff Patton. It is a very exciting time at a great church for the right next-level leader!
The Director of Ministry Operationswill exercise primary oversight of the operations and ministry strategies of Fellowship Bible Church, focusing their efforts on the following primary areas of influence:
Ministry Maximization (Strategic Systems and Processes)
Communication Clarity (internal & external messaging)
Workflow Effectiveness (systems & processes)
Resource Connectivity (mobilizing resources to priority needs and opportunities)
Facility Functionality (maximizing use and usefulness of our campus)
Sensational Stewardship (managing finances)
