Brett Becker – Church Planter | Lead Pastor
 
 
A descendant of an original settler of New Braunfels, Brett was born and raised in Seguin, TX, by two lifelong educators.  During his freshman year at Baylor University he was converted to Christ and felt an overwhelmingly strong calling to ministry, so he started doing ministry work at local churches and preaching wherever possible. Since graduating from seminary in 1995 Brett has pastored three  churches, including a successful restart of a failed new church plant in New Jersey.  He and his wife have been assessed as having the gifts and calling to plant churches by the most rigorous assessment center in the nation. Brett married his wife, Corinne, in 2012 and they have been blessed with two children, Paul and Hannah, with Luke on the way. He loves New Braunfels and wants to spend the rest of his life here, and he wants to see Quest Church do an incredible amount of good for the people of this city and beyond!
