Minister and Staff


John McCord, Senior Minister

Hi, I’m John McCord. I am the senior minister of El Campo Church of Christ.  I just celebrated my 17 year anniversary with this extraordinary church family and looking forward to many more.  To give you an idea of who I am; here’s where I am from and a few things about me.

John McCord
  • Grew Up in Pinewood, Tennessee (too small for a post office but very can be found on Google Earth)
  • Attended Abilene Christian University: BA in Pulpit Ministry, 1993
  • Attended ACU Graduate School of Theology: Master of Arts in Religion, 2002
  • Motivational speaker and Abstinence educator teaching teens and college students the benefits of saving sex till marriage
  • Former Youth Minister for the Whites Ferry Road Church of Christ in West Monroe, Louisiana, 1998-2002.

I have been married for 28 years to Mindy Kniffen of Andrews, Texas.  She and I met at Abilene Christian University.  We have three children: Hannah, Eli, and Rebekah.

Hobbies and Life Interest

Depending on the time of year it is, you can find me hunting ducks in the salt marsh, hunting deer with my children at granddad’s, fishing the flats for trophy reds, hunting big game in the Rocky Mountains or swinging for the stars on the golf links.  I like the outdoors!  Let’s just say when the Bible speaks of God, “You are resplendent with light, more majestic than mountains rich with game” (Psalm 76:4), I get it.
