rustin brunson

lay minister of preaching

and young families

Rustin grew up Arlington and went to both Arlington High and UT-Arlington. He met his wife, Amanda, during their college years although they went to different schools. They ended up moving to Oklahoma City where Rustin attended law school. They moved back to Arlington in 2011 and almost immediately plugged into St. Barnabas. Many things have changed for them since then, including the birth of two wonderful daughters. Though he serves the Encounter congregation primarily, his big bold prayer for all of St. Barnabas is that we grow as a people committed to the Word, devoted to intentional fellowship and who pray big prayers of expectation for God's glory to be made known in the community around us.
