Treasure Servant Leaders
Alan grew up in Longview. He graduated from Pine Tree and later from Baylor University. After college, he worked in Dallas for 25 years and was active in ministry.
Then pride and rebellion took over Alan’s life. For 10 years he lived in Hell. Drinking and addicted to cocaine he was arrested over 30 times.
“In a demonic cell in McClennan City Jail, God sent an angel and I surrendered . . . all.” Alan
God took Alan from dope to hope.
He is married to his wonderful wife Cindy. “She is my princess and a wonderful gift from God!”
Along with Gary Don Holley, he leads Jesus Burger and in 2016, came to pastor Treasure.
“I can’t wait to meet you and walk together with you into God’s glory.” Alan
Preston dynamically proclaims God’s truth everyday as a light in the darkness.
He spent 14 years addicted and selling methamphetamines living a hopeless life. He spent a few years in prison and emerged a new creation in Christ Jesus!
Today he leads Treasure to connect people to the cross of Christ. His desire is to see all God’s treasures living healthy, free lives in Christ Jesus.
Come shake hands with this country dope dealer turned hope dealer.
Mighty Joe Young
Joe grew up in the Methodist Boys Home in Waco Tx after his father left the family for prison and his mom fell into addiction. Rebellion followed the pain of rejection as only by God’s Great Mercy his life was spared thru years of drugs, dysfunction and prison. BUT GOD…
God reached His Hand of Love and Power thru those Prison Bars and lifted our Dear Friend Joe out of the Hell created by his choices of Rebellion!!! That was 15 beautiful years ago. HALLELUJAH!!!
The Spirit of Sovereign Lord is upon JOE!!! He has been Anointed to Bind up the Broken Hearted and set the Captives at Liberty. God has brought him to On Mission Ministries to love and live in the Power of the Holy Ghost making Disciples on the Streets of Longview and building Jesus’ Kingdom at The ShadeTree and Treasure and wherever God may send us together in Jesus Name.
Every Now and then, he may just get behind the keyboard and microphone and begin to Worship King Jesus!!! What a blessing to Worship and Sing and Dance a little with Mrs Carolyn and the Broken-hearted Worshippers of Christ Jesus!!!
Austin was a knucklehead! He attended Big Sandy High School where he played football and basketball and led the team in technical fouls. After graduation, Austin chased after the things of the world. He caught them, and they left him empty. Then he met some serious Christian brothers that challenged him to get real with Jesus. Jesus wrecked him and filled him with the Holy Spirit.
Jesus went to the cross so that none may be lost; Austin is passionate for students so that none may be lost.
Come make a friend in Austin and see God’s love in action!
Christopher grew up in a great home with parents that loved Jesus, and 7 other siblings. From a young age he was hungry for the things of God and the miraculous lifestyle that the scriptures teach are the fruit of those who are true followers of Christ.
In his early teenage years he found an increasing frustration with mediocrity and hypocrisy around him. He was hungry for deeper relationships and knowing there is more than just theology for a life. The enemy found a way to pull him into the world through music and relationships that made him feel accepted. After just a couple of years he was exposed to incredible filth, darkness, addictions, and grew increasingly angry, depressed, and suicidal.
But, God was already setting him up for deliverance. In the summer of 1994, his parents took the family to visit some close friends. Christopher went with a cousin in hopes to just get away from his family, but ended up at a prayer meeting. He tried to fight it, but by the end of the evening several teenagers, on fire for Jesus, continued to visit with him. Inspired by the love of God and the power of the Holy Spirit, these passionate lovers of Christ, ended up leading him to salvation and being baptized in the Holy Ghost.
“I was running from God, but Hallelujah I ended up running right into Jesus!” -Christopher
From that point on he has pursued to stay on fire for his beloved Abba and continue to learn to be like a child at the feet of Jesus. As he grew in his walk with Jesus, a passion began to ignite for raising up the next generation to be flaming torches for the Kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ. He now has 15+ years of teaching, coaching, and training youth. Mr. McBride, his wife Abigail, and their 4 daughters are thankful to have the opportunity to serve alongside our other amazing Treasure Children’s Ministry team and our Treasure families.
Don’t let the sombrero fool you, Lane is a technical superhero when it comes to all things lighting, audio, and visual at Treasure Church.

Tell Lane and the tech team thanks and bring him a burrito next time you see him!

After spending over 10 years chasing after the empty promises of this world, this prodigal came home to Jesus in 2010, and in 2013 the Lord took what seemed like a hopeless job situation and turned it into a web design business now called Destiny River Media. A few years down the road on what was a routine business appointment one November morning in 2016 the Lord introduced her to her new spiritual family here at Treasure! She now helps to create, manage, and coordinate the online presence here at Treasure along with our other amazing servant leaders. She has the support of her awesome husband Austin Eze and their four precious children.
Brother Stan is a humble prophet of the Lord God. God used He and his dear Bride of 66 years, Mrs Joyce, mightily in the 1980’s as The Holy Spirit swept thru East Texas from the roots of Rolling Hills Church in White Oak. He started Zion Tabernacle as well in 2002.
3 years ago, quite unexpectedly, Brother Stan called me and said, “God told me to give you the Church, I’ve heard from God, now you need to hear from God.”
I heard from the Lord, God said to Name the new gathering of deep roots, TREASURE. We walked together under Brother Stan’s Mantle of covering and wisdom until God called Him to Heaven in the Fall of 2018.
BELOVED BROTHER STAN, Pastor, Prophet, Leader, Mentor and FRIEND has gone to GLORY and LIVES with JESUS!!!
We continue in His Journey of Making Disciples who Worship in Spirit and in Truth in Jesus Name!!!
We Love you Brother Stan and will always remember your Words and your Heart for Almighty God!!!
Dear Mrs Joyce is God’s Treasure and our Matriarch in the Faith, she is still with us on Sundays as God allows!!!
