LEAD PASTOR – JEFF WIESNER
Jeff Wiesner moved to Denton in 2000 to join Denton Bible Church and attend the University of North Texas. Shortly thereafter, he met his wife Kathy while serving in college ministry before getting married in 2003. They have three children: Nicolas (7), Julia (5), and Charis (2).
In 2002, Jeff transferred from UNT to The Criswell College to finish both undergraduate and graduate degrees in Biblical Studies and Systematic Theology. During his time in seminary, Jeff served as the College Pastor for Denton Bible Church, where much of his time was spent leading, teaching and discipling students from both UNT and TWU campuses. In the fall of 2013, Jeff and his family resigned from DBC to serve as a pastoral intern at Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington D.C. before returning to Denton in January 2014 to plant North Point Church.
Jeff is passionate about expositionally preaching the good news of Jesus Christ while equipping our church to live together as disciple-making disciples in the world. He also enjoys studying theology, watching movies, and agonizing over the beleaguered mediocrity of our local professional sports teams.
We believe that God, in his grace, has given two offices to the church: “Elders” to teach, shepherd, and lead the church, and “deacons” or “deaconesses” to serve the physical needs of the church. As a young congregation, we are actively, yet patiently praying that God would graciously provide biblically qualified (1 Timothy 3; Titus 1) and ministerially competent men from within our congregation to cooperate together in pastoring North Point Church through the transforming power of God’s Word.
