Who is BJ?

John "BJ" Hall has been in the ministry since 1969. His first place of ministry was as Music and Youth director at First Baptist Church, Arcadia, Oklahoma. He then served as music director at First Baptist Church, Disney, Oklahoma where he met his soon to be wife, Connie Brooks. They were married in 1970 and he began, at nineteen years of age, his first pastorate at a little country church near Southwest City, Missouri, Poyner Baptist Church. He later pastored at First Baptist Church, Strang, FBC Adair, FBC Webber's Falls, and FBC Depew, and Westside Baptist Church, Sapulpa all in Oklahoma. He retired due to health issues but continued to serve the Lord in small churches in the Tulsa, Oklahoma area. After his retirement he served as interim pastor of several churches and interim music minister in one church. 

In 2001 he felt God's call to enter full time evangelism. He was a member of the Oklahoma Conference or Southern Baptist Evangelists and has served as music director and as vice-president for the organization. He served as president of OCOSBE for two terms, 2016-2017 and 2017-18. He has ministered in Oklahoma and Missouri, as well as youth and children's camps in Oklahoma and New Mexico. 

BJ took part in the 1981 New Life Crusades on Mindanao island in the Philippines. He is a member of the Singing Churchmen of Oklahoma. While he was a member of the SCM he participated in a mission trip to Australia in which we held concerts to raise money for new church starts in Australia. 

BJ is an active member of the Southern Baptist Convention Disaster Relief organization. He serves as chaplain, and served as the lead chaplain in the Muskogee ice storms and also at the Moore, Oklahoma tornadoes that killed seven precious children and displaced thousands of families. He has also served in California, Colorado, and Texas in the capacity of chaplain.

He is a member of Easton Heights Baptist Church, Tulsa, Oklahoma where he serves as Minister of Music.

BJ developed a prayer outreach program called "Who Is My Neighbor." Every church that has used this program has been blessed and experienced growth both spiritually and numerically.
