Clayton Brooks

Worship Pastor

Full Name: Clayton Louis Brooks

Clayton’s  family: On January 2, 2004, I married the most amazing woman ever created.  Her name is Andrea, and we all call her Aunie.  Since then we have been blessed by God with 3 handsome young boys: Connor Louis, Cayden Lane, and Asher Marcus.

Ministry Role: Worship Pastor

Regular order at Starbucks: You mean White Rhino?  I guess a vanilla latte, but my friends have taught me to like actual coffee.

Life motto: Red on black, venom lack.  Red on yellow, kills a fellow.  It’s saved me so many times.

Favorite scripture: 2 Corinthians 4:7 “But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.”

Things that fascinate me: Outer space. Oceans. Mountains. Anything nature. And along those lines…beautiful golf courses.  Also the generation of brave people who fought in WWII.
Previous job or line of work:
 Keeping 180 crape myrtles alive at Southwestern Assemblies of God University

People I would like to meet: George W. Bush. He seems like a really nice guy. Also Michael Scott…if he were a real person.  I’d want to be his friend.

One thing that most people don’t know about me: Once a drum shield fell directly on my head while i was leading worship.  And the band kept right on playing.

When and where did you get saved: 7 years old, in my room kneeling at my bed.  Also many times in youth group…specifically after watching the Thief in the Night movies. 
Music that moves me:
 Clair de Lune

Favorite singer or band: Let’s go with Norah Jones.  Also Andrew Belle is a favorite of mine.  And whoever the girl is that sings with Michael Buble on “Quando Quando Quando”

Peeves: When the wire breaks on the weed-eater.

Life-changing moment: In August of 2013 God told me that I am a prophet. 

Hidden talent: I’m really good at Stratego. Ask my brother.
What sport are you not good at?
 Synchronized diving
Quirks:
 I eat slow, because I believe in thorough chewing.

What makes you laugh? The Office. Specifically Steve Carrell. Also my boys can be pretty funny.  And the way the Washington Redskins are managed.

What is weird about you? I’ve been a Washington Redskins fan since birth.  It’s only weird because of where I live.  Also, I’m pretty sure I remember what it was like being in my mother’s womb.  No one believes me though.

The most adventurous thing you’ve ever done: I crawled through the Cu Chi tunnels in Vietnam.  They are old, 4’x4’ tunnels that the Viet Cong used in the Vietnam War.  I had to back out the first try, because claustrophobia.  But I got back in and conquered it.
My heroes:
 Jesus did the most courageous thing of all time.  My wife, my Dad and Mom, my brother Bryan, my grandparents…I have a long list of heroes.
Least favorite thing to do:
 Paint fire lanes with a broken roller brush on dirty asphalt when it’s over one hundred degrees in the middle of the day during a hot Texas summer, only to have the parking lots repaved a month later.
