Director of Missions & Connections
With a bachelor's degree in Music Theory and Composition from the University of South Carolina and an associate's degree in Recording Arts from Full Sail in Orlando, Florida, Tina made her way out to LA to pursue a career in film music. God had other plans for her there. After 3 years as a VP of Web Development for an automotive aftermarket distributor, Tina joined the staff at Saddleback Church. For two years she served as the Singles Team Admin, then took on the role of Small Group Community Specialist where she launched Saddleback's online small groups ministry. She is thrilled to be a part of the GracePoint family and closer to her own family in South Carolina. Tina plays cello and loves her morkie, Zadok (who is extremely popular on Instagram!).
Her heart for missions was born at a young age praying for missionaries and watching her father travel the globe telling others about Jesus. She is passionate about training others to share the Gospel and partnering with churches all around the world through the PEACE Plan.
If you are new to GracePoint, Tina wants to meet you! She can be found in the Guest Suite each week and would love to give you a tour of the church and let you know how to connect with the mission of the church and the missionaries in the church as we make disciples of Jesus Christ in Coppell and beyond.
