Dr. J.D. Weido is pastor of Bible Baptist Church in El Dorado, Arkansas. During a visit to El Dorado in 1991, Brother J.D. felt God's call to start an independent Baptist church in the El Dorado area. In 1992, He, his wife Deanna, and four children moved to El Dorado to start a church. The ministry has grown since that time to include a strong missions program, Christian school, bus ministry, radio program, jail ministry, children's churches, youth ministry, nursing home ministry, Character First program, and a growing Sunday school among its ministries.
J.D. Weido was born July 21, 1960 in San Antonio Texas. His parents, Marvin and Jean, accepted Christ at the Huisache Avenue Baptist Church. In August of 1969, his father surrendered to preach under the ministry of Dr. John Duckett at Helmers Street Baptist Church in Houston Texas. His family moved to the Fort Worth area to attend the Bible Baptist Seminary.
At the age of 15, J.D. received Christ as his personal Savior while attending the church his father had started. Brother J.D. graduated from Southside Christian Academy where he met Deanna Miles and later married. J.D. planned to be a dairy farmer and raise his family in the country, but God had other plans He surrendered to preach in November 1986, sold his dairy herd, and enrolled in the Norris Bible Baptist Institute (N.B.B.I.). While in school, he worked as an associate for his father at Southside Baptist Church in Arlington, Texas.
During Brother J.D.'s ministry, many have surrendered to full time Christian ministry.
Brother J.D. travels extensively and speaks as Mission Conferences, Youth Camps, Revivals, and Bible Conferences around the country. Many have been saved and others have surrendered to full time service as he travels for the Lord.
"Back to the Basics" is Brother J.D.'s philosophy of ministry. Old Fashioned Singing, Old Fashioned Preaching, and Old Fashioned Loving People have brought God's blessing on this preacher and his people.
