MINISTRY LEADERSHIP

 
Dr. Mike Runion

Dr. W. Mike Runion

Senior Pastor 

When the Lord Jesus Christ called Gail and me into the ministry, we had no idea the blessings He had in mind for us. We count it a great honor to serve at City View First Baptist Church. We believe we are serving in a God-given moment. God has spoken. We have heard. We believe that lives are changed in Jesus’ name and our time is come to share Christ with the world.
