Our Leadership

Jesus said to them, "You know that those who are recognized as rulers of the nations lord it over them; and their great men exercise authority over them. But it is not this way among you, but whoever wishes to become great among you shall be your servant; and whoever wishes to be first among you shall be slave of all. For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life a ransom for many." (Mark 10:42-45)

Most of our leaders are people who lead by serving in a variety of ministries.

Since June 2013, our pastor has been the Rev. Celia Halfacre.


Hi, I’m Pastor Celia, and this is my husband Matt. I graduated from the University of North Texas in 1998 with a BA in English Composition. In 2005 I entered Perkins School of Theology and graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2009. I was ordained in 2012. Matt and I moved to Lakehills in July 2013. We have five cats and one dog and lots of extended family in the area. I am deeply interested in liturgy and homiletics. I am always a learner, always wanting to learn more. I keep myself busy reading and studying almost anything I can get my hands on. While Matt enjoys cooking, I love to bake. We spend our spare time in the kitchen trying out new recipes.
