As a native Texan, a husband, and father of 3, I am grateful to call All Saints Dallas home. Jenn and I, along with our kiddos, have been involved at ASD since our move back to Dallas in early 2018. Our engagement in the life of the body has been marked by hosting and co-leading a Pastorate, Dinners for 9, and regular participation in Sunday morning worship and First Fruits services. We are passionate about hospitality and healing, and we are eager to lean into and ask God to continue to empower and increase our body’s ability to administer both to the people and city of Dallas. Vocationally, I have been a Licensed Professional Counselor since 2011, but currently, I support a behavioral healthcare organization as a part of the senior management team.
I was born in Pampa, Texas, and after attending Texas A&M, I moved to Dallas in 1994. I am a small-town boy at heart so I was drawn to the feel of community at All Saints Dallas. I have been a member at ASD for 6 years, and I love being a part of this community by serving on the Alpha Leadership Team and as a Pastorate Leader and a Sunday Usher. I love to entertain and travel, practice yoga and do home renovation and design. I have a Vizsla named Charlie who makes me get outside and walk, most days. Career wise, I spent 10 years in corporate life, and then decided self-employed is better. Since 2005 I have worked as stylist with a custom men’s clothier and I helped launch an eCom winery two years ago.
I grew up in northeast Texas. After marrying Michelle, my wife of 34 years, we settled in the Lake Highlands area where we raised three children. I’ve enjoyed a 35-year career in the oil and gas industry as a petroleum geologist, and I’ve been fortunate to serve my community through leadership in Young Life ministry and on the boards of the Exchange Club and the local YMCA. Michelle and I began a new and exciting chapter in our faith walk when we joined All Saints Dallas in 2017. Since then we’ve been blessed to serve in the Alpha ministry and as mentors in our Community group. I’m also grateful to serve as a greeter on Sunday mornings. I’m an avid reader, and I also enjoy hiking with my family, jogging, playing tennis, and playing with my two grandchildren!
My husband Pat and I became members at All Saints in 2010, and found our spiritual, worship, and fellowship experience here to be richly rewarding and fruitful well beyond our expectations. I count any job I am called to at All Saints a privilege. I currently serve on the altar and chalice teams and coordinate ASD’s outreach to Sam Houston Elementary. I have participated with various ad hoc prayer teams, as a greeter, and staffed the information desk. As for my professional life, before retiring in 2015, I worked as a teacher for 20 years and as a manager and CEO with two non-profit emergency medicine organizations for 28 years.
I grew up in Dallas and received my Bachelor’s degree from the University of Texas at Austin in 2011. After graduation, I worked for Campus Crusade for Christ for two years at UT. I moved back to Dallas in 2013 and soon after co-founded InspireMore, a digital media company focused on highlighting stories of hope and inspiration for which I currently serve as the Chief Marketing Officer. While working, I completed my MBA at SMU in 2016. My wife Kay and I have been members at All Saints since 2013 and serve in the Little Saints ministry. We live in East Dallas with our two children, Sanford (2) and Lucy (2 months). I would be honored to serve All Saints in this capacity if elected.
I am married to Mindy (Rayer) Stoker and have four children, ages ranging from 17 to 23. I am an attorney at a large Texas law firm, Winstead PC, where I represent real estate investors and developers, hospitals, charitable/non-profit organizations, and other clients as they negotiate contracts, and resolve disputes, related to the design and construction of commercial, industrial, healthcare, and multifamily residential/mixed-use projects. Since at All Saints, I have enjoyed co-leading several Alpha tables. Recently, I served on the Security Committee at All Saints, helping prepare us for our move from Oak Lawn to downtown Dallas. I currently serve as the lay-leader of the parking lot/security team. In that role, I designed the program and helped establish the team that welcomes members and visitors and helps keep our Sundays safe and secure. In past churches I have led the single adult ministry, served as youth pastor, taught adult education classes, lead in-home small groups, and served as trustee. These are exciting times at All Saints, and I’m excited to continue to serve with all of you as we make our new home in downtown Dallas.
I grew up the daughter of a career military pilot, living abroad and all over the U.S. Anywhere we moved, the first order of business was finding a place to worship and serve, and that remains important to me. My husband Sam and I have been at All Saints since 2013 and while he serves on the Parking Lot team, I teach 4- and 5-year olds in Sunday School. We love this body and are committed to serving the Lord here. My “day jobs” have included being a public school teacher, a Child Protective Services investigator, and an HR executive. I now focus on leading employee experience at UT Southwestern Medical Center, and I am best using my gifts when leading, coaching, and equipping others to succeed. In whatever way I am called to further the Kingdom at All Saints, I count it an honor.
