Luke Gore

Youth Pastor

Luke has served as youth pastor to Infinity Student Ministry here at Bridge City First since February 2021.   In April 2022, he married the love of his life, Whitney.  He is an engineer by trade and guides duck hunts and trains dogs.  Did we mention that he is also an amazing musician?  Yeah, we love him around here.

Delaney Lemoine

Worship Leader

Having grown up in the church, Delaney has stepped into her own in recent years as she uses her talents both vocally and on the keys to help lead us into worshiping God full-tilt at Bridge City First.  She is happily married to Landon since March 2022.  You’ve never met anyone more concerned about saving strays and helping single women who have become pregnant.  It’s that heart of compassion that makes her shine.

Brenda Moore

Office Administrator

Behind the scenes making it all happen each week is this lovely lady.  She has the sweetest spirit, and can take care of business.  Brenda‘s joy is chasing her grandkids to every game or competition and cheering them on.   Her heart is always focused on serving others and making their lives easier.  She‘s a massive blessing to Bridge City First, and we are grateful to have her on the leadership team!
