Pastor Tracy and his wife Wanda were both born and raised in Oklahoma City. Pastor Tracy is a big, big Oklahoma Sooners (OU) and Dallas Cowboys fan! He loves Starbucks coffee, BBQ and Mexican food.
Tracy and Wanda have 3 sons, Devin, who is 22, Nathan who is 20 and their big surprise, Aiden who is 10. Pastor Tracy has been in the ministry for over 26 years. He is progressive minded with a lot of vision and passion for the Kingdom of God.
He was a full time youth pastor at The Rock church in Oklahoma City, a church of about 700 at the time. He went to pastor First Assembly of God in Wetumka, Ok. He was then the pastor of First Assembly of God in Sullivan, Mo.
He felt God calling him to leave a congregation of more than 300 to go to a dying church of 15 people in Shawnee, Ok. Glad Tidings was an old church in a bad area of town that had just about died out. After a few years they were able to move to a new Location, change the name of the church to Praise Assembly and build a new two million dollar facility. After starting with about 15 people they had almost 400 in their first service in the new building. After almost 10 years of being the Lead Pastor of Praise Assembly he felt led to move to what God had for him next. In June of 2009 Pastor Tracy and Wanda Barnett came to be the pastors of what was then First Assembly of God in Denton TX. The church was renamed to Grace Fellowship. They were there for almost 8 years.
In October of 2016 Pastor Tracy and his family became the pastors of Reach Church in Friendswood TX. They believe that God led them to New Life to restart and revitalize the church. Although they started with about 14 people their first Sunday they feel that God is going to do amazing things in the days ahead! We hope you will come and be a part of it this Sunday. Feel free to e-mail Pastor Tracy for any questions or comments you might have.
