Pastor Steven Bell

Hello I’m Bro. Steven Bell and it is my privilege to serve Way of the Cross Baptist Church as the pastor. I began my journey as senior pastor on June 12, 2011.

My family and I are very excited to begin this new phase in our Christian ministry! The Lord has blessed us so much.I’ve been a part of this church since I was nine years old. God has blessed me with a wonderful wife Lynne and with three precious children Grace, Hudson, and Hannah. We live about 10 miles south of the church in Locust Grove. God has allowed me to serve in several capacities over the years. I have worked with our youth group and children’s ministries, served many years as the associate pastor and now God has blessed me with the privilege of serving as the senior pastor.

Most of the ministries that I was first involved in at our church involved our young people. I have a heart and passion for our youth. I was asked to oversee all of our youth ministries from nursery and children’s church all the way up through high school. I have been blessed with the best youth workers that help to fill all those positions to care of our young people and make my job easy. God has now placed me in the most amazing place as pastor of all these precious people here at Way of the Cross! It is always a blessing to preach to our people and try to help them from God’s Word.

It is my goal for our church to continue to grow and reach lost souls for the Lord. People need to be in a place where Jesus is lifted up and the people love each other. We would love to have you and your family come and visit and if the Lord leads you this way be a part of our church family. I’m so very excited about where the Lord is leading our church and I can’t wait to see what he is going to do here at Way of the Cross!
Love in Christ,
Bro. Steven Bell




I would like to take this opportunity to recommend to you our missionaries Jonathan and Heather Marks.  I do not know a finer family with a burden for missions than the Marks.

Jonathan is a faithful man of God and has devoted his life to serving the Lord and has a true heart for missions. I have personally served alongside him and witnessed his compassionate caring for others.  He also has a true desire to see the lost reached with the Gospel!

Heather is a very talented Godly lady with a servant’s heart.   She is a loving wife and mother and she is completely behind her husband as they take the Gospel to Japan and seek to plant churches and train disciples.

Jonathan and Heather are always willing to do anything asked of them in ministry and are always prepared when called on.  They are a great blessing to this pastor and to our church.

Jonathan is a man of Godly character.  He is hard working in his study of the word of God and in all his approach to ministry.  Jonathan and Heather are very teachable and it’s a privilege to be their pastor. I would highly recommend them to you as missionaries for the country Japan

I would love to assist you in any way if you have any questions about the Marks.


In His Service,

Pastor, Steven Bell
