Andrew grew up in a Christian home, but became a Christian himself at the age of nine, when he came under the conviction that he was guilty of sin and needed Jesus Christ to save him. At 23, he started teaching the Bible and preached for the first time, beginning to recognize a call to ministry. He holds a Bachelor of Business Administration from Texas A&M University and the Master of Divinity from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.

Tara Anderson
Children’s Ministry Director
Tara Anderson was raised in a Christian home, and at the age of 10 surrendered her life to Christ. In college she fell in love with studying the Scriptures, and in her early 20’s answered the call to ministry. Although Tara feels her most important ministry is as a wife and mother, she is also incredibly passionate about familiarizing children with the God of the Bible and helping them to establish a doctrinal foundation on which they can build for the rest of their lives. Tara holds a Bachelor of Arts in Religious Studies from Regent University, and is currently pursuing a Master of Arts in Christian Education from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.

Worship Leader
Brian grew up in church, was saved at 11 and was soon putting his love of music and God to good use in the church. He has served as a leader in several worship ministries, and is very excited to serve as Worship Leader for The Church at Pecan Creek. Brian lives in Lewisville with his wife of 10 years, Carla, and their 3 children (Gavin, Wyatt & Ella).
 
A note from Brian about worship at The Church at Pecan Creek: “Through the Living Word of God in the Bible, we know that “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God” (Matthew 4:4). It is our goal in worship to give God all the glory by reading the word, preaching the word, praying the word, singing the word and seeing the word (in the ordinances). As your Worship Leader, it is my personal goal to lead in a way that directs the attention away from ourselves, and onto the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I hope to see you at The Church at Pecan Creek where we can worship Him together in spirit and in truth as the body of Christ!”
Personal Testimony and letter from Trey Talley:
I was saved at the age of 9 at Beech Street Baptist Church of Gurdon, Arkansas. Previously I had believed that I was right with God because I went to church, was a pretty good kid, prayed, and my parents were Christians. What more could God want? However, one day while sitting in church I had an overwhelming sense of my sinfulness and God’s holiness and realized that I was a sinner in need of being saved, and that Jesus Christ was the Savior. That day God used the gospel that was communicated through the pastor, and through my mom following the service, to bring about my salvation.
 
I grew spiritually at a “regular” pace for years. Our family was committed to attending church every time the doors were open. However, my 6th grade year I was challenged to spend time with God everyday of the week in Bible reading and prayer. I committed to trying it out. I originally made a 30 day commitment to do this, but the 30 days turned in to 60, 90, and has not stopped. It started a habit that continues to this day. My salvation and the daily dependence on Him through Word and prayer have had a tremendous effect on my life. My goal is to live for Him daily, and to give him my life to be used in the best way possible for his kingdom.
 
At the age of 19 I received a very personal call into ministry. I was working in a blueberry field at the University of Arkansas after classes one day, when this overwhelming pressure came over me to be a minister. I called the Baptist Association the next day, asked for any possible openings, and was hired the next week at a nearby church to serve as their Youth Director.
 
A few years later I moved to Dallas Texas to join an evangelistic organization that combined physical strength exhibitions with the Gospel. Here I was able to use my former bodybuilding experience as a platform to reach people with the saving message of Jesus Christ. I spent nearly 16 years traveling to 48 states and 10 different countries preaching the Gospel. My ministry time with Team Impact was instrumental in shaping who I am today as a minister. Through the years I was blessed to work with an amazing team of ministers and with over 500 different churches.
 
Along the way, God blessed me with the wife of my dreams, Felisha.  We traveled the world together for quite some time.  However, in 2013 with an additional increase of children at my house, it was time for me to come off the road. God provided an Assistant Pastor position only 6 miles from my house at Northview Baptist Church in Lewisville where I enjoyed working with an amazing group of people.
 
My wife and I had known for some time that we were being called to begin a new work more towards where we lived. We did not know exactly when that was going to happen, but the desire and direction from God to do so had become increasingly clear. Upon much study, prayer, and counsel from others we decided to launch The Church at Pecan Creek in 2015. 
 
Starting a church is not easy, but it is worth it.  Every day I thank God for the opportunity to serve this body of believers that God has sent to form The Church At Pecan Creek.  Our church is off to a great start, and we pray that God will continue to grow it. 
 
Hope to see you soon!
