Eric House is a native of northern Alabama and graduate of Auburn University and New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. He accepted Christ during a youth camp in Florida and was called into the ministry a few years later while at Auburn University. Eric joined North End as Pastor in September of 2014. 

Eric loves North End because we are a family of believers who love one another and seek to serve our community and reach them for Christ. His favorite Bible verse is Luke 9:23 “And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.”

Eric and his wife, Joy, have two sons, Nathan and Andrew.



Mary Collier is a native of Houston, Texas and graduate of the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. She accepted Christ at the age of 5 and was called into full-time ministry in the 6th grade. Mary joined North End as Minister of the Children and Preschool in 2011.

Mary loves North End because we are like family to her. Her favorite Bible verse is Habakkuk 3:18 “yet I will rejoice in the LORD; I will take joy in the God of my salvation.”

Outside of church, Mary enjoys cooking and spending time with her family.


Ray Hawk- Youth Minister

Ray joined the staff and church family at North End in January 2024. Ray married his high school sweetheart, Maggie. Ray and Maggie have a daughter, Elliot Bree, and a golden retriever, Lemon. Ray made Jesus his Lord and Savior at the age of 10 and accepted the call to ministry at the age of 19. Ray has served in a multitude of roles serving all ages throughout SETX. In 2022, he founded the non-profit Faith Recreational Sports Leagues, where he still serves as the Executive Director. Ray and Maggie's passion and purpose is to lead youth to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior and to follow Him.

Ray's favorite Bible verse is Ephesians 5:1-2 : "Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do, because you are his dear children. Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. He loved us and offered himself as a sacrifice for us, a pleasing aroma to God."


Kirstin McGee is a native of Houston, Texas and graduate of Texas A&M University. She joined North End in 2007 but realized she had not made Christ Lord of her life. In July of 2011, Kirstin accepted Christ. She joined the staff at North End as Ministry Assistant in 2010. 

Kirstin loves North End because we strive to reach people outside the walls of North End for Christ. Her favorite Bible verse is Galatians 2:20 “I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”

Kirstin and her husband, Brian, have three children, Sam, Sarah, and Emily.
