Tara Reynolds (formerly Barker) joined the MDPC Youth staff in May of 2012 as the Middle School Outreach Director and shifted to the role of High School Discipleship Director in March of 2016. She is passionate about making young disciples and helping students see how trusting Jesus Christ as their Savior changes everything. Tara is a native of Katy, Texas and felt the call to full-time ministry at an early age. She holds her undergraduate degree in Communications from Houston Baptist University and is currently pursuing a Masters of Divinity from Fuller Theological Seminary with plans of becoming an ordained pastor in the ECO denomination. She started her journey at MDPC in 2010 as a part-time worship leader at the 8:30 and 9:45 AM Sunday services and still loves leading worship whenever she has the opportunity. Tara and her husband, Matt, met in the summer of 2011, and they were married in March of 2014. They love their quirky rescue pup named Wishbone and frequently take him on adventures in pursuit of cool new restaurants, bars, and parks in their beloved city of Houston.
