Senior Pastor

Johnny Brady

 Founding Lead Pastor of Fellowship of the Nations, Johnny Brady, is known for his easy-going, relevant style of teaching, as well as his quick smile and warm heart. He has two burning passions: his family, and bringing the Life-Giving Gospel to the greater Houston area as well as to the nations of the world. Pastor Johnny’s heartbeat is pretty simple-to “Win Souls and Make Disciples,” equipping them to become fully-devoted followers of Christ. He and his wife, Lisa, have been married since 1981 and have three grown sons and four grandchildren.

Spanish Nation Pastor

Jose Israel Mejia

Jose Israel Mejia grew up in a Christian home and completely surrendered his life to Christ during his first year of college at Baylor University. He then transferred to the University of Houston where he gained his Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering. He is currently a Technical Engineer in the wind/renewable energy industry.

Jose is engaged and looking forward to tying the knot to Araceli Solache on January 2019. He also holds his birthplace of Monterrey, Mexico dear to his heart and loves to spend his free time with family. Jose strongly believes that if we have a passion for God and stand rooted in the foundation that Christ alone has set, we will come face to face with our Creator and His will for our life.

Having served in many areas, including the sound and technology ministry, youth ministry, teaching ministry, and preaching the Word of God, Jose wants to serve God rooted on the example that Jesus gave: “In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”
Matthew 5:16
