Our Ministry Team
Weldon Branham, Pastor
Susan and I were married September 9th 1983. We met at Rainbow Baptist Church, the church we married in. We have 3 children – all boys.
Samuel, our oldest son, and his wife Lisa live in Morgan Mill. They have 4 children, Hunter, Dillon, Colby and Kinzie.
Daniel, and his wife Misha, live in Glen Rose. They have one daughter, Becca.
Jacob, our youngest son, remains at home with us. He is a volunteer at Dublin Elementary Campus.
I currently serve as the Chaplain for Solaris Hospice in Stephenville. Prior to Solaris, I served as the chaplain and office manager for Universal Hospice in Stephenville for over 17 years.
Susan is currently working for Dublin ISD as the RTI aide for the Elementary campus. She took this position following some 12 years at Tarleton State University as the office manager for the Health and Counseling Center.
My education was completed at Tyndale Biblical Institute and Seminary located in Fort Worth. I received both my bachelor and master level diplomas from them. Their program allowed me to gain my education with both extension and online courses allowing me to continue working and being at home with family. My education focus on two areas: biblical counseling and biblical languages.
Susan and I have pastored in various places over the past 35 years. We began our ministerial work in a place called Hill City (a community just north of Glen Rose). We pastored in this church for 13 years. Following this pastorate, we served in Nemo Texas at New Prospect Baptist Church for 7 years.
After 20 years of bi-vocational ministry, the Lord has led us to continue as bi-vocational pastor of the First Baptist Church of Dublin, Texas while continuing to serve as Hospice chaplain in Stephenville.
We enjoy getting to know each of you and serve alongside you. We look forward to all opportunities and engagements the Lord has in store for the future of our church.
