Pastors & Staff

Colin Conner

Head Pastor

Pastor- Colin Conner

“Discipleship is my battle cry!  In the Bible Jesus commissioned us to go and make disciples of all men.  It is my desire to lead people into a personal and intimate walk with God.  The process for this is discipleship.  Would you join me on the journey of becoming a follower of Christ?”

Pastor Colin has been in ministry with the EMC since 1994 with 4 different churches. His experience ranges from short term missionary, youth pastor, evangelism pastor, associate pastor, and senior pastor. Most recently he was the senior pastor of Grace Community EMC in Memphis, TN.
Colin graduated with B.A. degrees in Bible and Pastoral ministry from Vennard College, and is currently enrolled in a masters degree program through Wesley Biblical Seminary in Jackson, MS.
He married his wife Dana in 1998, and they have had 4 children (Zack, Bethany, Zoey Zada).  Bethany went to be with the Lord as a result of a severe birth defect in 2001.  Colin and Dana both call Texas home, and are glad to be where they have deep roots.
