    Brian, bless his heart, is non-Texas born... So, please don't judge. Thankfully after his ministry training was completed at Oklahoma Baptist University - he ended up in Texas at Southwestern Theological Seminary. Brian is the founding pastor of lifepoint church and in August 2003 he, along with the support of Oakland Heights Baptist church members, began doing life with others in a warehouse on Loop 281. Brian is committed first and foremost to his God and his family, but you can count on seeing him at every. single. Longview. Lobo. football. game. for the next four years. 


    In addition to his blessed Oklahoma Sooners - Brian and his wife Christi have four children: Cason, Ashlyn, Alyssa and Averie. 


  • Melanie Tucker

    Administrator

    Melanie joined the staff here at Lifepoint in February 2016 as the church’s administrator to make sure Brian wasn’t the only non-Texan born staff member. Seriously though, Melanie listened to God’s calling as he guided her to this position. Growing up as a missionary kid in Bangladesh gave her a heart for loving people, making this match a perfect one. Melanie is one of three children’s leaders at Lifepoint and has been in this position since 2011. She really enjoys connecting with the kiddos and their parents. 


    Melanie and her husband, Chris, have been married since 2003 and have two children, Carter and Alyssa. They have been attending Lifepoint since 2006.
