Meet the FBC Prosper Staff

John D. Herring
John D. HerringSenior Pastor

My wife Roni and I are native Texans. I am an Aggie – graduating with a Bachelor of Business Administration from Texas A&M. Upon graduation, I attended Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, where I completed a Master of Divinity Degree with Biblical Languages, then went on to receive my Doctorate of Ministry from Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, CA.

I have been blessed to serve the last 25 years vocational ministry – from Youth Ministry in College Station, to Church Planting in Las Vegas, to Teaching Pastor and Seminary Professor in Atlanta, Georgia.  Over that time, I have also been privileged to serve in short -term missions in a variety of countries around the world.

In 2014, our family felt the strong calling to return to Texas to serve at First Prosper.  We absolute love our Town and our church.  We especially love the mission of First Prosper: to love God and worship Him as we become world-changing followers of Jesus Christ.

During the week, you’ll likely find me at either the church or one of our local coffee shops spending time with people.  On weekends you may find me on the sidelines of a Prosper football game doing the First & Ten chains, or riding out with our fine Prosper police officers as a volunteer chaplain.  But my priority is my time with my family.  We love eating together, watching movies, playing games, and traveling.  I also find a little bit of time to play golf or watch my beloved Aggies!

Thanks for stopping by our site to learn more about First Prosper.  I hope to meet you soon!
