Rev. Dr. W. Brent Hampton - Pastor  E-mail Dr. Hampton

Brent comes to us after serving Presbyterian congregations in the Texas Hill Country and in rural Oklahoma. He is a second-career pastor, having started out in the business community with the Dallas Chamber of Commerce, then working for 14 years in the financial services industry. During that time, he served as elder, Stephen minister, Sunday school teacher and enthusiastic member of First Presbyterian Church Dallas, his original Presbyterian church home. Through his work and worship there he heard the call to full time ministry of the Word and Sacrament.

He left his career in banking to attend Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, graduating in 1999 with a Master of Divinity degree. He earned his Doctor of Ministry degree in 2011. Brent holds a BA in History of Religions from Southern Methodist University and an MA in International Business Management from the University of Texas at Dallas.

Brent is married to Rev. Kristin Galle (Hampton), an ordained minister in both the United Church of Christ and the Disciples of Christ. Together they have three daughters in a blended family: Rachel, a caseworker for MHMR in Austin; Kaitlyn, a student at Yale University and Mariah, a student at Texas Christian University.

Brent and Kristin enjoy ministry, serving the Lord, critiquing each other’s sermons, cooking together, reading, travel and most of all – life. Their two cats, Merlin and Empress Theodora, graciously allow them to live under the same roof with them.

 


LuBecca Long - Youth Director  E-mail LuBecca

LuBecca is from the small town of Olton, Texas. Growing up in the Bible belt gave her many opportunities to further her walk and develop her leadership skills. She served as a youth Sunday school teacher at her home church, First United Methodist Church in Hart, Texas. During college years she served in leadership, on the music team and as an intern for the South Plains Wesley Foundation. She later moved to College Station where she became a mentor for the college group and a junior high girls’ counselor at A&M United Methodist Church. LuBecca has most recently served at Covenant Presbyterian Church and on the Presbyterian Youth Connection Council, planning events and retreats for the youth of our presbytery.

LuBecca will lead youth activities at our church, including Youth Focus for middle school and junior high, and the new HUMP gathering for high school students. She will also serve as a worship leader for the Gathering, beginning in late October.
