  • Janet bell

    Administrative Ministries Assistant | Drop-Off Location Coordinator for Operation Christmas Child


    Janet received Jesus' gift of salvation at 8 years old and grew up being discipled by parents, older siblings, and Sunday School teachers. Having a love for God's Word installed in her heart, she graduated from public high school and attended Kansas Wesleyan and Dallas Baptist University, where she dove into Scripture deepening her love and understanding of her Lord and Savior and His Word. Just before her 2001 graduation from DBU, she married Andrew Bell. God had brought them together into her life early and thus allowed them to grow up in the church together and develop a friendship first. In 2000, they moved to Frisco and discovered Preston Ridge, where they attended, joined, and plugged into a young adult class, in briefly as volunteers for the Student Ministry, as teachers of Pre-K, MOPS participant, men's and women's retreats, deacon, Parents' Night Out coordinators, Operation Christmas Child Drop-Off Location Coordinator (2009 to present), staff member, adult teachers, and elder. In March of 2007, their family doubled with the arrival of Seth and Joseph. In August of 2011, Preston Ridge offered Janet the opportunity to serve on staff learning and maintaining the church body's communication site, as well as supporting the pastoral staff administratively. She finds joy and gratitude in serving her Savior daily through her family, weekly through her church family, and yearly through OCC. For her, there is no greater honor than to be used by God in these areas of life. Janet has been a been a member of PRC for over 22 years.
