pastor - jeff payne


Jeff and Kathy Payne

Jeff Payne (Bro. Jeff)  has been a pastor for over forty years. He loves serving the Lord Jesus through the ministries of Compass Church. He is keenly aware that his responsibility is to equip saints (all of us) for the work of the ministry, and he is not interested in putting on a show or building a personal following. "Any church that revolves around a pastor has misplaced priorities and is doing it wrong. We are all serving at the pleasure of Lord Jesus. My role and function is different, and my obligations are more scrutinized, but I am no more 'called' than any other Christian." His vision for this church is that it continues to be an intensely glowing beacon of love, truth and light.

Jeff preaches the majority of messages and is the chief leader and "vision caster," under Christ for our church, but all of our members are God-called ministers learning to respond to the calling on our lives.

pastor - compass at night


Andie Cormier

I have been with this church since November of 2020. I currently work as the Student Success and Engagement Coordinator for HSA of Beaumont and am a graduate student seeking my degree in Social Work. Once I graduate, I hope to use what I have learned to help and serve others. Currently, in addition to the young adult evening service "Compass at Night", I facilitate "Coping Christians", a small group for those grappling with anxiety and depression or supporting people that do. I believe as Christians we have to seek people out and meet them where they are. We have to choose to love them the way we know God loves us. Even though we fail often in our imperfections, when we choose love every day real change happens all around us. Please feel free to reach out to me with questions or concerns via email:

Gary and Diana Johnson

Gary and Diana Johnson serve as Worship Pastors at Compass Church in Beaumont. The couple has a true passion for worship, and desire for Compass Church to grow closer to The Lord by experiencing His presence through corporate worship. They also desire to see the members of Compass Church thrive in their personal worship time throughout the week.

Gary and Diana host a Worship Small group on Thursdays at 6:30pm at the church. The couple has been leading worship at Compass for 4 years, however, they have lead worship for many years prior to being called to Compass.

The Johnson’s strive to reach the younger generation, and to propel them into a true, personal relationship with Jesus. Gary and Diana disciple and mentor each young person as they grow in their faith and discover who they are in Christ.
