Brother John Fream is our Senior Pastor. John enjoys leading the church and passionately preaching the Word of God. He was married to his wife Darla on February 23, 1988. Darla grew up in Choctaw, Oklahoma and is a graduate of The University of Central Oklahoma. They have a daughter who was born in 1996, and a son born in 2000. John and Darla love traveling with their kids and watching them play sports.
John was born in Midwest City, Oklahoma and was raised with two brothers and one sister. He graduated from Midwest City High School in 1986. John loves sports of all kinds and is especially fond of football. He can also be found out in the woods hunting or on the lake fishing.
He holds a Bachelors of Science in Human Resources from Southern Nazarene University and a Master of Divinity from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.
John gave his life to Christ in 1992 and surrendered to God’s call to full-time ministry shortly thereafter. He served for eight years in Student Ministry before moving into the pastorate. John has served as pastor at Calvary Baptist Church in Broken Arrow, OK, FBC McAlester, OK and now at Cypress. It is his passion to see people saved and see people grow in Christ. He believes the Bible does not contain the Word of God but is the Word of God.
John’s goals in life are to be a great man of God, great husband, great father and great pastor in that order. He also loves to read theological books and biographies of great men and women of God.
His favorite thing about pastoring Cypress Baptist Church is the opportunity to preach the Word, following God’s vision for the church, and loving the people of CBC. If John were not pastoring or in the ministry, he would likely be a teacher and coach or in business.
