Servant Leaders

Carmen Chambers

Children's Ministry Co-ordinator

"When my husband and I first came to Brackettville, we were going to try all the churches. Well, when we came to the Methodist Church we felt so welcome, so embraced, that we never looked anywhere else.

First UMC is the biggest hearted little church in Texas! "

Pastor Cynthia Engstrom

Pastor, Youth, & Adult Ministry Co-ordinator

"First UMC is a special place. When my daughter first visited during a break from university studies, she paid the congregation her highest compliment when she said, 'It's real here!' Church is real here. Really welcoming, really loving, really joyfully worshiping God and making a positive difference in the world. Come and see!"

Tim and ReAnna Hay

Family Ministry Co-ordinators, Acolyte Supervisors

The Hay Family is a huge part of our Sunday mornings at First UMC. The girls regularly bring the light of Christ and the Cross into worship and Tim and ReAnna are super examples for us all of what it is to be a Christian family, in modern times. Watch for coming family events. We're planning to have some good family fun in coming months.

Taylor Stephenson

Nurture Committee Chair

"I Love the Brackettville Methodist Church! The folks who attend reflect the Christian spirit in their demeanor, their countenance, and in their thoughts and deeds! The music is uplifting, the gospel is always the center of worship, our pastor is one of the best ever! Every Sunday, I will be here if God gives me the good health to be here! Come try this wonderful church!"

Jana Murray

Hospitality Team Co-ordinator

"When David Lee and I first walked in to this church, we could feel the love of God. It was like, "God lives here." Everyone is so friendly. No one is critical. No one cares where you come from, or how you speak, or dress. It is one of the happiest places I’ve ever been."

Janice Moore

Hospitality Team

"Neither Richard or I were Methodists before attending here, but the minute we walked into this church, like almost everyone else, we felt right at home. We’ve never felt this way before in a church. Of course it’s the people, the fellowship,...and the services are just wonderful! Richard sings in the choir even though he says he shouldn’t be in the choir. He loves the church as much as I do."

Richard Moore

Veteran's Liaison

"This is my second home!"

Berta Howell, (Punky)

Rolando DeLeon
