Rev. Dr. W. Brent Hampton - Pastor  Email 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,  and Mariah.

Brent and Kristin enjoy ministry, serving the Lord, critiquing each other’s sermons, cooking together, reading, travel and most of all – life.
