Pastor Dennis Cates

I have been the pastor of Christ Church since November 10, 2013. My wife, Sue, and I are blessed to be serving such a loving and vibrant congregation. This church is a spirit-filled group of disciples on a journey of faith reaching out to all of God's children with open hearts. Come join us in our walk with the Lord.

Prior to coming to Christ UMC, I served in the North Texas Annual Conference from which I retired. I completed seminary training at Perkins School of Theology in Dallas, Texas with a Master of Divinity degree . I also hold a Doctor of Education and Master of Educatiion in special education from Texas Tech University. I also earned a Master of Arts degree in History from Sul Ross State University. Sue is a special education consultant serving as an educational diagnostician and counselor.
