Rev. Christy Barto

Pastor Christy came to us following our 2016 Annual Conference. She is a Fort Worth native and attended seminary at Texas Christian University’s Brite Divinity School. Christy is married to Brian and together they have three daughters, Bayley, Lilly, and Monica. Bayley is a Sophomore clarinet player in the Fighting Texas Aggie Band of Texas A&M University (Whoop!) and Lilly and Monica are having a blast tumbling and getting ready for cheer and the MMISD Drill Team! Pastor Christy and her family enjoy catching live plays, playing games and vacationing to new places each summer.

A note from Pastor Christy:

“Hey there, friends! Pastor Christy here and I would like for you to know that we at Bluff Dale UMC are committed to making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. We are excited about what God is doing in the world and are eager to share the love of Christ with everyone we meet. I would like to personally invite you to join us this, and every, Sunday as we learn, grow in faith and step out in service together. See you soon!”
