Runks Runkles

Runks has a passion for Christ and a passion for people. A true evangelist at heart, he has a deep desire to preach the Good News of Jesus Christ to this crazy world we're living in. Runks is a master at communicating the Gospel with clarity, relevance, and depth. His passion for the Gospel, knowledge of the Word of God, and off the charts energy will inspire your students and adult to love Jesus, follow Jesus, and share Jesus! He absolutely believes that the power of the Gospel is still the power of Gospel and no matter how crazy antagonistic our culture may seem to be towards the Gospel it is still the power of God for salvation for all people. So Runks, in his own unique way, unashamedly and refreshingly preaches the Gospel with passion and relevance. However, Runks’ message is not just about getting saved (trusting Christ), it’s about being saved (finding your identity in Christ), living saved (growing in relationship with Christ), and getting more people saved. etc.

Jesus saves y'all! Nothing else matters!

Runks was a Youth Minister for 7 years and in 1998 began traveling the country sharing the Gospel to teenagers, college students, and adults. He holds a Master of Divinity from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and resides in Levelland, Texas. He and his amazing wife Joanna, have two awesome grown kids.

Jessica Clark

Jessica Clark was born in Guatemala and came to the U.S. with her parents when she was 7 years old. They came to the SE side of Houston. It was a difficult transition, but a little girl in her class invited her to church. That was the beginning of God intervening in Jessica’s life. About 7 years later they moved to the Alief area, and again, another girl invited her to church- Wilcrest Baptist Church- where she has been attending ever since. She gave her life to the Lord when she was 16 years old and she has never looked back.
Jessica was the speaker at our ladies retreat last year and we are so excited to invite her back. She has taught Sunday school and ladies groups. Jessica has a very strong testimony of how God has rescued her and been there for her. She has also been an active part of the Worship team and the choir.
Jessica has also taught Elementary School and has been an ESL interventionist for 17 years. Then she was the Pre-school director at Wilcrest Baptist Church for 7 years. She has been actively involved in missions and has made several trips to Mexico, Africa, Guatemala, and even Singapore. She spoke at a conference in Singapore for Dr. Woo.
Jessica is married to Darren Clark and they have two little girls who she is homeschooling. She has been praying about how to best serve the Lord in this season of her life and is actually very excited about this opportunity.
