Hi; ... I'm Jim Rawlins (known by some as Preacher Jim). I joined the staff of First Christian
Church March 1st, 2015. Prior to that, I served as Senior Minister at Bethel Christian Church in
Athens, TX for seven years and before that, for seven and one half years at First Christian
Church in Tatum, TX.
I was first licensed to ministry in 1998 and ordained in 2007. My wife, Karen, of 27 years is my
main support and cheerleader. I could have never made it in ministry without Karen’s and my
daughter, Lindsey’s support. Karen teaches at Hughes Springs ISD and my daughter, a graduated
of Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene, is an Athletic Trainer currently serving Alvin ISD.  
My goal is to offer the Gospel of our Savior Jesus Christ to anyone willing to listen. Other
interest are reading, classic vehicles, hunting and firearms.
My sermons are scripture based and my belief is that the Holy Scripture, as originally written, is
without flaw.
If you are reading this, my prayer is for God to be the King of your life and that you would come
and worship with us on Sunday - or a Christian Church of your choosing!
Your servant in Christ,
Jim Rawlins
