Pastor Russel Bristol and family

The Bristol's were called to Goldthwaite in September of 2015 to be a part of Western Heritage Cowboy Church.  Russ has been preaching the gospel since 1998, at the age of 17, as a youth pastor at Harris Chapel Southern Methodist Church in Lindale, TX.  In 2011, Russ graduated from Texas Baptist Theological Seminary.  Russel and Melissa were married in 2005 and have had two wonderful sons since.  Melissa served as a missionary in Thailand and southern Africa before the Lord put these two together.  


"True bible teaching is at the heart of who I am as a pastor," says Pastor Russ.  If you are looking for a bible teaching church give Western Heritage Cowboy Church a try.
