Our Ministry Team



Dr. James Hassell, Pastor

Pastor James was called to pastor FBC San Angelo in August 2013. He has pastored churches in both the Panhandle of Texas (FBC Tulia) and in Fort Worth. A native West Texan, he was born and raised in Amarillo and graduated from Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene with both undergraduate and graduate degrees. In 2012, Pastor James earned his Doctor in Ministry degree from Truett Theological Seminary at Baylor in Waco, and that same year he published a book on church growth and reconciliation called Seeing New Light.  Dr. Hassell and his young family love San Angelo and her people. In fact, he was named by the San Angelo Standard-Times as one of the top “20 Under 40” leaders in the city in 2014. Pastor James also serves on boards for the T.B. Maston Foundation and for the Hardin-Simmons University Board of Trustees. James has been married to Shannon since 2002, and they have two children.



Bill and ElaineBill Gillum, Minister of Music

Bill brings over 40 years of ministry experience to FBC! He is a graduate of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and Baylor University and has a contagiously encouraging spirit to go along with his fine leadership background.  He has led worship in churches throughout the state, including Corsicana, Katy, Spring, and Lubbock. Bill and his wonderful wife, Elaine, have been married since 1975 and have three children.

Here is a statement from Bill’s personal ministry statement which tells you a bit about his heart for ministry:
“My gifts are relational. I am primarily an encourager. My years in ministry have sharpened my leadership and administrative abilities. I am comfortable in many areas of church ministry and am glad to help in any and all areas of the church.  I love people and always desire to help them set and achieve goals. The highest goal is always to draw closer to God and in the end to look more and more like Him.”
