Our Pastoral Staff

Stillwater Bible Church is led by four full-time pastors that help train and equip our members to do ministry. The collective experience of our pastoral staff spans over 50 years of professional ministry, 14 years of advanced training in biblical exposition, pastoral care/counseling, and administration. Our staff are enthusiastic about training and equipping believers of all ages to accurately handle the Word of God and make meaningful application of biblical truth in their daily lives.
JB Bond, Th.M
Senior Pastor

JB has been in ministry as a pastor for 30 years and is a gifted Bible teacher. He has written a number of Bible studies that are used by churches to train men and women to do ministry. One of the joys of JB’s ministry has been to impact thousands of OSU students with biblical truth since arriving in Stillwater in 1985.

“If you are not consciously being transformed by the Word of God you will unconsciously be conformed to this world.”
