Ken Ussery

Interim-Worship Pastor


Kenneth and Teri Ussery are certainly no strangers to FBC Bonham. Having served multiple interim positions here, along with leading the music at revivals at First Bonham, the Usserys’ have been friends of our church family for many years.

Kenneth has served at several churches over the past 36 years, including First Baptist McKinney, First Baptist Fairview, Preston Ridge in Frisco, and Main Street Baptist in Georgetown, TX.

Ken came to know Jesus as his personal Savior at age 7 and surrendered to the ministry at age 14. He began his college career in music, and received his Bachelors in Accounting from East Texas State.

His theology training comes from Dallas Theological Seminary, and later received an MBA in Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Counseling from the University of Mary Hardin Baylor.

We are excited to welcome Kenneth and Teri back to First Baptist Bonham.
