Lead Pastor Jim Harris has been serving at Clear Springs since October of 1995 when he was hired to lead a church planting effort in Mustang. The church plant originally met on Morgan Road until it purchased the property and completed building the current facility in 1998. Later that year, Clear Springs Church was established as a church.
Pastor Jim holds Theology degrees from Randall University (formerly Hillsdale Free Will Baptist College) and a MDiv degree from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. He began preaching at the age of 10. He served in a variety of ministry positions while in college and seminary, but Clear Springs Church has been his one and only pastorate.
In addition to leading the church, Pastor Jim is Director of the Christian Ministry Department at Randall University, Chairman of the Oklahoma Free Will Baptist State Mission Board, a member of the Mustang Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, and Treasurer for the First Oklahoma District Association of Free Will Baptists.
He loves to bow hunt, turkey hunt, and fish when he finds free time.
He and his wife, Kim, have been married for 25 years and counting. They have two adult children – Austin and Bethany.
