The Worship Pastor Search Team & Personnel Committee jointly present Tracy Barker as their selection to serve as our Worship Pastor.


Tracey Barker has over 20 years of experience leading worship, creative arts and technical ministries. She is a highly skilled musician/singer/songwriter experienced in developing teams and leaders.  She possesses strong organization, interpersonal and communication skills.  Her calling and passions are building relationships, creating community, and leading  worship.

 

Tracey grew up in a Christian home.  She became a Christ Follower at age seven and was called into the ministry during her teen years. She and her  husband Ken have two children still at home and an older daughter who is married with 2 children who live in Leander, Texas.  

 

In addition to leading worship for churches, retreats, rallies, concerts, camps and various children, youth and adult events, Tracey also has served in many areas on church staff, including Receptionist, Administrative Assistant, Office Manager, Leadership roles in Children’s, Youth and Music Ministries, and countless other positions that come along with being a pastor’s daughter.

 

After having been involved with Meadowbrook’s Marriage and Women’s retreats for years, she and Ken feel a deep connection to Meadowbrook and believe God has been weaving our stories together for years.  She can’t wait to meet you. 


You will have a chance to meet her Saturday, February 23rd

The Worship Pastor Search Process

 

The Worship Pastor Search Team was assembled and tasked with the responsibility to find the person God has been preparing to lead Meadowbrook’s worship and creative arts ministries.  Team members were selected by the Personnel Committee per our By-Laws with recommendations of people to serve provided by the Church Council and affirmed by a vote of the church at the October Business Conference.

 

Search Team members are Susie Holdbrook, Darrell Hadden, both as representatives of the Personnel Committee, along with Jim Hare, Randy Kattner, Cece Lively, Kathy Mirick, Leah Mullins, Tanya Puig, Kenny Staas and Stephen Sullivan.  Please take time to express your appreciation to them.

 

This team received over 15 resumes and prayerfully watched hours of candidates leading worship.  Six candidates were asked to respond to  written questionnaires.  From those responses, the team narrowed the search to the top two candidates.  Team members observed both leading worship in person and had sit down interviews with them and their  spouses.

 

Through the process of seeking God’s wisdom and direction, the team agreed that Tracey Barker is the person God has prepared to be our  Worship Pastor. The Personnel Committee agrees unanimously with their recommendation and has invited Tracey to come lead worship in all three services on Sunday, February 24th.  At the conclusion of each service, we will vote to affirm the work, discernment and joint recommendation of the Search Team and Personnel Committees and officially call Tracey Barker to be Meadowbrook’s Worship Pastor.

 

Additionally, we are grateful for Matt Boudreaux’s leadership.  He has done an outstanding job and will be here to help with the transition.  Please take time to express your gratitude to him for his servant’s heart and leading us in the interim.

 

Let’s continue to pray and give thanks for all that God is doing!
