We have a group of deacons who work diligently to see that the various works of the church are carried out faithfully and productively. They are varied in their gifts and passions, so each one works directly with one or two ministries in particular. They meet regularly with the elders and work as a whole for the overarching purpose and good of the church. We thank God for these servant-hearted brothers!

Darrel began serving in this role in 2018—service which he does with excellence. He and his wife Beverly have been members of Comanche Trail since November 2009. They also served as house parents with our Children’s Emergency Home ministry for over seven years. Darrel and Beverly have two children and five grandchildren. Darrel is also one of our deacons. He and Beverly are hardworking servants who bless the church family greatly.
Derek has served as our youth minister since 2001, but also takes responsibility for a good portion of the church’s IT needs and Men’s Ministry events. Before moving to Amarillo, he worked with high-risk youth in Oregon for five years and did vocational youth ministry, as well as working as a youth minister in Rockdale, TX for six years. Derek and his wife Kim have two children, Keaton and McKensi. Their family blesses the church in countless ways.
Hollee began her work as our children’s minister in 2019. She was raised in Hobbs, NM, but (like any true Texan) is quick to point out that she was born in Texas! She has lived in Amarillo since 1995, where she and her husband, David, raised their two children. Hollee has four years of prior experience in children’s ministry, with additional church office experience. She is contagiously passionate about serving children in a God-centered, safe, welcoming, and nurturing environment.
Leonard has served as the Prison Minister at Comanche Trail since November 2007. He is passionate about sharing the gospel with inmates. Leonard leads church services, teaches classes, and coordinates a team of volunteers from area congregations to mentor and serve those who need a message of grace, hope, and good news. Before beginning this ministry, he preached for the San Jacinto congregation for two years and for Spearman Church of Christ for 8 years. He is married to Cheryl, and they are the parents of three daughters and the proud grandparents of eight grandchildren.
Tim joined our church as our pulpit minister in 2021. He and his family moved here after serving as the pulpit minister for the Uvalde Church of Christ for the past 3 years. Prior to moving to Uvalde, TX, Tim was the youth minister for the University Church of Christ in Canyon, TX. Before going into ministry in the United States, Tim and his wife Aime were both missionaries in Guadalajara, Mexico with the AIM program. Tim and Aime have three children, Tola, Elisha, and Noah.
