Leadership Team:

Our Pastoral Team is exciting, full of energy, and is anxiously awaiting the opportunity to visit with you and share with you personally the many programs, activities, and opportunities Mount Olive offers.  

Welcome to our new pastor Bro. Paul and his wife Rebecca.  Bro. Paul was called by God and the people of Mt. Olive Baptist Church as senior pastor starting February 20, 2022. Bro. Paul came from Sturgeon, MO where he was pastor at Sturgeon Baptist Church for nearly 12 years.
My wife Rebecca and I have been so blessed by Lord over the past years and are absolutely anticipating so many more blessings here at Mt. Olive.  We have five fabulous grandkids all of the Russellville area. Just ask us and we will be glad to share stories and pictures of our grandkids anytime.  We are looking forward to the next many years here at Mt. Olive Baptist Church.  I invite those searching for a Bible believing church that loves and serves Jesus, to please stop by and worship with us. It would be a pleasure to meet you.

Bro. Alex Earls is our youth minister and is ready to go each Wednesday evening for fun fellowship and Biblical lessons.  Bro. Alex grew up at Mt. Olive and currently serves on our leadership team focusing on ministering to the youth in our community.   Bro. Alex along with his wife Denise, Bro. Mike Nichols, and Joshua Bell, focus on building relationships and sharing the love of Jesus with the youth.  If you are in grades 7-12, they would love for you to join them.


Deacons are selected by the church membership, contingent upon God’s personal call.  They are men of integrity, understanding, and compassion.  In their role as deacons, they assist the Pastor in caring for, encouraging, and supporting the church family.
