MEET OUR TEAM

Pastor Tod Delay

Pastor Tod Delay moved to Seminole with his family in 1999 to take over a new start-up church. With only a handful of people, he has seen the community and the church grow over the past two decades. He believes strongly in raising up leaders who understand their authority. His enthusiasm and ability to make the Bible understandable has helped countless men and women grow and mature in their walk with God. Pastor Tod completed Pastoral Studies at Rhema Bible Training College in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma in 1996. He also holds a Masters Degree in Theology from Life Christian University. He and Daphne have three adult children (all pursuing ministry) and two precious grandkids.

Pastor Tod has been a life-time Dallas Cowboys fan!

Pastor Michel Powers

As one of the founding members, Michel and her husband have been very influential in the growth of TC. After being a youth pastor for over 20 years, she transitioned to our Family Pastor, overseeing women’s ministry and our prayer teams. She also teaches rotating topics to grow believers in our Healthy Households class. Her and Johnny have four children plus several life-time adoptee children, and fifteen grandkids.

Michel makes the best chocolate cake ever!

Sara Duran

Sara volunteered with TC and became so valuable we had to add her to our staff! Initially hired as an assistant to the children’s pastor and office administrator, her faithfulness and work ethic made her the perfect choice as our Administrator. Sara loves God’s people and has a heart to see everyone cared for. Her and her husband Brad are busy with young school-age boys but it doesn’t stop them from serving with joyful hearts!

She loves roller coasters and amusement park rides- the bigger, higher & faster, the better!

Rebecca Villanueva

Becca joined our team as a teacher at Kingdom Kids in 2014 and quickly became a vital part of our daily administration at the daycare. She now serves as the full-time Director overseeing a large staff and almost one hundred preschoolers. Becca and her husband Chris have a large heart for community and it’s definitely seen by all who know them.
She'd rather be outdoors than indoors! Wonder if she could put her desk outside?

Pastor Daphne Delay

Besides being co-pastor as TC, Daphne is an author, speaker, and podcaster with a passion to help this generation discover who they are in Christ. She is the author of Facing the Mirror,  Facing the Enemy, and Facing God.  Daphne blogs nuggets of spiritual growth and encouragement every week at daphnedelay.com on the subjects of faith, purpose, and self. You can also catch her weekly podcast, Identity Advantage  on iTunes. She knows first-hand what unworthiness, guilt, and condemnation can do to a believer. After an encounter with God at age 21, she discovered the truths of our righteousness in Christ — which she now teaches and ministers in a simple and easy-to-grasp-and-apply approach.
Friends say Daphne has nine lives (ask her why)!

Pastor Chris Delay

Raised in Seminole, Chris moved back after graduating from Rhema Bible Training College to do what he does best: HELP. As the Associate Pastor of TC, he has a passion to see the church grow, the community reached, and to make the biggest impact possible for the kingdom of God. Chris and his wife, Gabi, moved back to Seminole and together they are a great blessing to our church family.

Pastor Chris is a collegiate national champion in basketball! Ask him to show you his ring!

Gabi Delay

Gabi was raised as an American missionary in Germany and moved back to Tulsa in her late teen years when she decided to go to Rhema Bible Training College. This is where she met her husband, Chris, and how she ended up in Seminole, Texas! Raised in the ministry, and with strong administrative gifts, we love having her on our team and the work she is doing on our missions team with her international experience.

Gabi has climbed two "fourteeners" (mountains over 14k feet tall)!

Maribel Fernandez

Maribel could win the award for longest daycare employee! Starting at Kingdom Kids when it was still a two-day program, she’s seen many changes and much growth during her time on staff. She has a huge servant’s heart and always gracious to everyone, young or old(er). And her smile is contagious! Her husband Uziel has a matching smile, so it’s no wonder that her little boy and girl do too!
She doesn't like to be cold while swimming (or getting splashed)! Indoor warm pools only!
fun fact!

Pastor Renell Miller

Originally from Detroit, Michigan, Pastor “Ro” moved to Seminole after graduating from Rhema Bible Training College. He served in various ministries at TC, including children’s, for over seven years before becoming our Children’s Pastor. He has a great outlook on life and is quick to find humor and enthusiasm in everything. Married to Esther, they have two handsome young sons.

Pastor Ro likes writing poetry!

Pastor Micheal Navarro

Micheal found Jesus as an adult and knew real quick his heart was forever changed and called to the ministry. His enthusiasm and youthfulness made him the perfect man to serve as our youth administrator for 4 years before accepting the call as full-time youth pastor. But don’t let his youthfulness fool you, Micheal is the proud dad of two school-age girls. We’re grateful for his work ethic, integrity, and love for God’s Word and this generation of young people!
Micheal started collecting watches a couple of years ago (maybe he'll let you borrow one)!
