Our Pastor

Jodie Brown is our senior pastor and has been at Winona FBC since April 2018.  He has been married to his wife Lupe since 2000 and they have 7 children. He graduated from East Texas Baptist University in 1998 with a B.S. in Christian Ministries.  Jodie and Lupe moved to Oregon in summer of 2004. While in the northwest, he served at several churches in the capacity of youth pastor, associate pastor and senior pastor.  He completed a M. Div. from Multnomah Biblical Seminary in Portland, Oregon.


In the summer of 2015, Jodie and his family moved to East Texas.  Jodie took a sabbatical after God called him and his wife to adopt a family of 5 children.  During this time, they had the opportunity to bond and make the transition to a family of 9.


He is excited and thankful to be back in pastoral ministry. He feels called to lead the local church in living out her identity in Christ to Love God, Love Others, and be On Mission together.  In addition, Jodie serves the local community as the ESL coordinator for Winona ISD.
