Grant Ehren
Elder at Fellowship Bible Church
I was raised by Christian parents in small town Arkansas. We attended the First Baptist Church and it was there that I received Jesus as my Lord and savior. The year was 1967 and I was nine years old at the time. I left home after high school to attend college and made it through 4 years before I met and married my wife, Paula. We raised two wonderful children while living in Conway, AR and then Russellville which brought us to this church. Our children are now grown, married and on their own. I enjoyed every minute of raising them. I have been attending Fellowship Bible Church for several years and I absolutely love this church. I have come to know so many people and consider all of them my friends. I count it a blessing to serve along side so many who have the love of Jesus in their heart and it shows. FBC is a fellowship of people full of grace and Paula and I feel blessed and loved to serve here.

Elder at Fellowship Bible Church
God blessed me with a home that had two very committed Christian parents. I do not recall a time that I did not know of God's salvation plan. My personal belief in Christ developed in late elementary school. In college I met my better half, the woman that I feel was given to me by God's providence, Janeen. We married in 1992 and have since had the privilege of raising 4 children who are now sister and brothers in Christ. God is so good and living out His purpose for our lives within His fantastic body here at Fellowship Bible Church is a true honor and inspiration. We get to serve and be served by our Fellowship Bible family.

Elder at Fellowship Bible Church
I am a 45 year old husband and dad. I will have the privilege of celebrating 20 years of marriage to a wonderful wife in 2015. I have 3 boys that range in ages from 6 through 14. I was raised in a Christian home, and distinctly remember asking Jesus to come in my heart at age 5 in a little Sunday School class. I was also blessed to be a part of a vibrant youth group through Jr High and High School which did a tremendous amount to help me mature in Christ. I love being a member of the Body of Christ, loving, being loved, serving, and participating in whatever God is doing.

Jeff Walchshauser
Senior Pastor and Elder at Fellowship Bible Church
I came to know Christ at a young age and have spent a lifetime growing in my personal relationship with Him. God has blessed me with a wonderful bride (Anjanette) since 1997 and three incredible children. After time as an Army Officer and then as an Engineer, God called me to serve Him full-time beginning in 2003. Along the way I earned my Master of Divinity degree and began serving as the Pastor at Fellowship Bible Church in July 2014.

Caleb and Jodi Moore
Sr. High Youth Directors at Fellowship Bible Church
(Caleb): I was saved when I was 10 years-old at a Missionary Baptist Church. I’ve been married to Jodi since 2009. (Jodi): I was raised in a good, safe, Godly home. My parents are a solid foundation in my life and examples of Godly living for my younger brother and me. When I was 6 years old, I asked Jesus into my life. Then shortly after I was baptized. My family has been a part of this church since the beginning. I grew up a member of the youth group, now I’m blessed to lead it with my husband. God continues to grow and mature me in my walk with Him. I am looking forward to what He will continue to do through us and this youth ministry in the years to come!!

Kelly Narveson
Accountant at Fellowship Bible Church
I was raised in a Christian home but my mom did not go to church. I had a neighbor lady that would come and pick up and take me to church each Sunday thru my childhood/teenage years. Was baptized as a small child but I don’t think I really knew what that fully meant so in my college years I recommitted my life to the Lord. I am married to Terrance and have 2 boys, Jacob and Owen. I excited to serve at Fellowship Bible because of the all the great people that go to our church. I love seeing the church grow and all the new changes that are coming.

CJ and Allie Smith
Worship Directors at Fellowship Bible Church
(Allie): I grew up in the Russellville area, in a very Godly and loving home. I became a Christian at a young age, but it wasn't until I was a teenager that I began to take an active role in my relationship with God. After high school I did a discipleship training course in Watford, England called Soultime. It was during this time that I began to lead worship. In 2008 I met my husband and we were married one year later. He's pretty cool.

Anjanette Walchshauser
Women's Ministry at Fellowship Bible Church
I grew up all over the country, mostly in the south. We moved a lot! Every Sunday we went to church, but I didn't understand I could have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as my Savior until I was 16 years old. I am thankful God put men and women in my life who invested in me and taught me how to study God's Word. They encouraged me to follow Jesus with every step I take! I've seen Jesus and the Word of God dramatically change lives, including mine! It's my passion for God and His Word that drives me to invest in women, encouraging them to live by His Word and in His Grace. I have an amazing husband who I love even more now than when we married in 1997. God has also blessed us with 3 children - all uniquely created in God's image with their own gifts and talents. God is good!!
