Sharing God's Love and Acceptance with YOU!


Pastor & Staff

Reverend Doctor
Chad Johnson

Senior Pastor


I want to take a moment to formally introduce myself. My name is Rev. Chad T. Johnson. I was born and raised in Bridgeport Texas and was active in the band during my middle and high-school years. After graduating high school, I accepted a music scholarship to Texas A&M University-Commerce where I studied for several years before transferring and finishing my bachelors degree in Business and Sociology at Texas Women’s University. I have served Rhome United Methodist Church for the last five+ years while attending seminary at Southern Methodist University working on my Masters in Divinity. I graduated with my masters in May of 2019 and began working on my Doctor of Ministry degree that June. I am currently a Provisional Elder in the United Methodist Church and am only a few months away, God willing, from being fully ordained as an Elder. I also plan to graduate with my doctorates this May. I am proud citizen of the Chickasaw Nation and my Native American heritage undergirds every aspect of my life.

 I was raised hearing all my life, “If you need anything at all, just holler,” and so I say to you as your pastor, I am here for you and, “If you need anything at all, just holler.”

Ann McCarty

Children's Director - Children's Christian Fellowship

My name is Ann McCarty. I am 71 years young! I have been in church as long as I can remember. I accepted Christ at the age of 22 and ever since my heart has been with the little ones!! I have been blessed to serve as children's ministry coordinator of both Rhome UMC and FUMC Boyd while my grandson pastored there. I began serving Rhome UMC in 2016 and both Rhome and Boyd in 2019. This was one of the most blessed times in my life. When you tell these little ones the Bible’s stories you can just see Jesus on their faces, you can see the excitement in their eyes of what is going to happen next. To see this and to feel the excitement in my heart is a blessing every single time! Every time I teach, I have a deep sense of peace and I love to be the one that’s blessed to be their teacher! I am passionate about watching these young ones grow in Christ! In Matthew 19:14 Jesus says, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for the Kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these!”
God Bless,
Ann McCarty

Christina Clayton

Financial Secretary/Office Manager

My name is Christina Clayton. I have been a member of the Jacksboro community for 12 years and a Texas resident for the last 20 years. I am married to a wonderful man, Jeremy, have three amazing children, and two beautiful grandchildren. We enjoy family time singing and playing instruments, as well as taking care of a plethora of animals! I am often found with my nose stuck in a good book or just humming a tune. I am so very pleased to be joining the First United Methodist Church family and look forward to getting to know many of you.
Many Blessings,
(Affectionately known as "Lolli" to my grandchildren.)

Crystal Rose Venable

Nursery Director

Known by her friends and family as “the baby whisperer," Crystal has a way of bringing a smile or giggle to even the grumpiest babies!  

When she’s not cuddling on our precious little ones at church on Sundays, Crystal spends the week at Texas Wesleyan University, where she is a Freshman majoring in Elementary Education.  Her goal is to be a teacher.  She also enjoys painting, reading, writing, and singing.

When you drop off your child at our nursery, you can be assured that he or she will be in very loving, caring, and capable hands!
