“And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ...” (Ephesians 4:11–12)
Bret Rogers | Pastor
Originally from Corpus Christi, Texas, Bret moved to Fort Worth in 2004 to attend seminary while working as a welder and plumber. As a daughter of missionaries, Rachel grew up in West Africa and later attended Texas A&M. Bret met Rachel in 2003 on a family hunting trip and married Rachel in the summer of 2006. Shortly thereafter, they joined Redeemer Church. Bret once served as a deacon of our bookstore ministry, a part-time children’s ministry intern, and a care group leader.
In August of 2011, Redeemer Church affirmed Bret to serve as a vocational pastor. Bret received his Master of Divinity (2007) and PhD in New Testament Studies (2017) from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. By God’s relentless grace, fervent prayer, and the members’ faithful partnership in the gospel, Bret’s hope is that Redeemer Church hear the voice of their Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ, as they labor together to spread God’s glory to their neighbors and the nations.
Bret and Rachel are blessed with four children: Luke (June 2008), Levi (Oct 2010), Anna (July 2012), and Abigail (June 2014).
Benjamin Watson | Pastor
Originally from Denver, Colorado, Ben moved to Fort Worth with his wife, Terra, in 2008. Ben was raised in church, and professed faith in Christ while very young. However, it wasn’t until the age of nineteen that Ben began to obediently and faithfully follow Jesus. Terra, likewise, came to faith while studying at the University of Texas at the Permian Basin.
Ben and Terra both began serving as volunteers and on staff at their church in Midland, Texas, around 2006. After a few years of friendship, they were married on April 28, 2007. From the outset of their marriage, Ben and Terra have felt a heavy burden for the lost community around them. They are self-professed nerds, and are actively engaged to point fellow nerds beyond the beauty of created things to the Creator, from whom all good things flow.
Ben was appointed as an elder in March of 2015. He works for wife's company, Worth Media, while also serving as a part-time vocational elder.

Trey and Erin invested in Redeemer Church during its early days as a church plant. They then moved to Maryland for nine years where Trey served in another church plant as elder and Erin as children’s ministry director before returning to Texas in 2018. Trey is excited to serve as a pastor at Redeemer Church having been appointed in 2019. He received his Master of Divinity from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky.
