Born into a pastor's family in Minnesota, Alan was raised in Illinois, then Monrovia, Liberia and later in Bloomington, IL; before moving with his family to Rhodesia - Zimbabwe - where they planted a thriving congregation in 1976; now known as New Life Covenant Church of Harare.

A year after meeting Yvette Selbin there, they married and moved to Houston, Texas; where they started their own family and Alan completed his B. A. in Theology. Moving to the DFW area and then Granbury, their two children - Summer and Zane - were blessed to grow up in Hood County.  They are now both married and have wonderful children of their own.

Since 1991, Alan has been our first Senior Pastor and he also serves as one of our Elders.  His wife, Yvette is his partner in ministry in multiple ways. 

As Senior Pastor’s wife, she has served our congregation in Children, Youth, Women, and Worship Ministries.  Currently, she ministers to individuals and families through wise counsel and reconciliation ministry; as well as hosting Spirit led meetings in their home and beyond; which are called HouseFires.

Yvette is a unique communicator, careful to give Jesus Christ the glory Who gives her special insight for encouraging people, wherever she goes.
