PASTOR EMERITUS: BRUCE BROWN
Serving as Senior Pastor of TBS since 1976, Ps. Brown is one precious GEM, and loved dearly! He has the true heart of an under-shepherd of Jesus Christ for over 42 years, tenderly caring for his flock. Though he appears a common man, he beautifully expounds on the Word of God in all its richness through the leading of the Holy Spirit. As of September 2018, Pastor Brown passed the Torch to Pastor Anthony to be the Senior Pastor of the assembly at The Bible Speaks. Pastor Brown will remain serving the Lord and the local assembly as Pastor Emeritus (honorary title for his many years of service), alongside and in support of Pastor Anthony and the Body of Christ in which he and his wife have been such intricate members.
With a passionate heart after God, we are blessed beyond measure as Ps. Brown beautifully inspires each one of us in a whole-hearted personal walk with God.

June has been our TBS Administrative Assistant since 2008 and truly has a heart for our ministry. After years of teaching academics, writing Sunday school curriculum and training Sunday school teachers, June joined our administrative staff and loves her job. She shares that years ago, she began to pray she could find a church that would be “as a family” to her and discovered that at TBS. She says, “Not only have I found that the Word of God is preached clearly and the Spirit allowed to move freely, but at TBS the grace and love of God are expressed consistently and with balance.” June is married to David West, and they have a foster daughter in Alaska and a son currently serving in the military.
