John & Heather Ferguson

Mercy Hill Church
College Station, Texas

PO Box 11101
College Station, Texas

John and Heather Ferguson met at Texas A&M University and married while they were finishing their degrees. John received a B.A. in Philosophy (’93), and Heather received her B.A. degree in Speech Communications (’94). John also received M.Div. from Reformed Theological Seminary (’99). Before moving back to College Station, he served as a minister for almost two decades.

During that time, John has served 12 years in campus ministry in Mississippi, Texas (at A&M), and Peru, and the last eight years as a church planter in Calgary establishing New City Church. He has also been active in the C2C Church Planting Network as well as the Grace Church Planting Network of Canada. Every step along the way, Heather has been a vital partner in life and ministry while homeschooling their children.

Several years ago, life’s circumstances dictated that they move back closer to family, and the Lord reawakened a latent desire to plant a church in their hometown of College Station, Texas. They are making the move back with a call to plant a new, Gospel-centered, missional church. Their hope is that the cynical, the skeptical, and the doubters in Bryan-College Station will find a place where their questions are taken seriously and where they can safely explore the story of Jesus with all of its life-changing relevance.

John & Heather are parents to 4 adult children: Justin (21), Kevin (19), Miranda (19), and Jason (18). In addition to spending time with the family, John loves the mountains, reading, college sports, Tex-Mex food, pipes, and having conversations with people from all walks of life about the things that matter most. Heather loves spending time with family and friends, books (especially good fiction), and deep conversations.
