So very grateful for the men and women who have given their lives fighting and serving to protect and preserve the freedoms we enjoy today. Join me in thanking God for them and in praying for the men and women who continue to serve our country around the world today.
This photo was taken just before the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery when Janet and I were there in 2014. It was a very moving moment and reminder for us of the great heritage we have because of the service of those who went before us and gave their lives fighting for freedom around the world.
BJ & Janet were married in July 1977
They have three grown children who are all married: Jeremy & Whitney Rutledge, Chris & Julie Hurst, and Josh and Hannah Rutledge. They also have five grandsons, and a granddaughter.
BJ says perhaps our greatest legacy is even though our kids are PK's, they love Jesus and are all involved in ministry in the local church.
BJ has served at churches in Dallas - Bossier City, LA - Houston - and was at Fellowship of the Woodlands (Woodlands Church) in The Woodlands before coming to Grace Fellowship.
BJ is the Legacy Pastor at Grace Fellowship Church in Paradise, TX.
