Pastors & Staff


Tom Wilson

Senior Pastor
Tom has been in the ministry for over 23 years and joined the staff at Cross Bend in 2001 where he served as the Youth and Children’s Pastor. In 2011 he became Senior Pastor and is very excited about the amazing things God has in store at Cross Bend. He met his wife, Shawn, while he was a student at Dallas Christian College where he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in the Bible. After a career in Interior Design, Shawn felt called to be a “missionary” in the public school system where she serves as a Art Teacher in a local Junior High School. Together they have served the Lord and have shared their passion for “working in the trenches” ever since. Tom enjoys many activities including woodworking, fly fishing, and spending time with his family. Tom and Shawn have two children, Hunter and Laurie Ann.

Katierose Beaudet

Katierose joined the staff in 2015 as the Ministry Assistant. She now leads the Connection Ministry where she helps people discover Jesus through various roles within our community here at Cross Bend. Areas such as small group, first time guest experience, and serving opportunities are all things that she is passionate about! Katierose and her husband Nick currently live in Carrollton. You can usually find them at a local sushi restaurant, playing ultimate frisbee, or riding their tandem bicycle together!

PJ Southard

PJ is a recent graduate from Dallas Christian College with a Bachelors Degree in Worship Arts. His older brother forced him to join the youth band in High School, which eventually lead to him being called to lead worship and pursuing a degree in Worship Arts. While attending Dallas Christian College, he met his soon-to-be wife Rachel Rolling, who is studying Psychology and is an Admissions Counselor at the college. While most people buy flowers for their spouse, Rachel and PJ would rather spend that money on chicken strips at various restaurants! PJ enjoys watching football, fantasy football, board games, and ultimate frisbee.

Nancy Davis

Nancy joined the Cross Bend team in May 2019. She serves in the areas of administration and communications on a part-time basis. She and her husband, Jeff moved to Texas from Oklahoma in 2018. She spent the last 10 years working for a local church in the Tulsa, Oklahoma area and loves the challenge and passion of ministry.
Nancy grew up in mid-Missouri and has a Bachelor of Science degree in Communication from the University of Central Missouri. She and Jeff have two grown sons in Oklahoma: Spencer and his wife Kaylyn live in Owasso and Andrew is finishing his degree in Oklahoma City. In her free time, Nancy enjoys reading, HGTV, dark chocolate and hanging out with their rescue dog, “Dave”.
Nancy is thrilled to be a part of the Cross Bend family!

Sydney Estrada

Youth, Graphics & Social Media
Sydney currently lives in Dallas, and attends The King’s University studying Christian Ministries. She has been involved in many parts of ministry, mainly due to her growing up in ministry. She has worked in a child development daycare with infants and toddlers, and absolutely loves it. She has also been on many missions trips to Brazil, Germany, Hungary, the Czech Republic, and Slovakia. Sydney enjoys hanging out with friends and family, traveling, reading, and always having a cup of coffee.

Ashton Vazquez

Ashton Vazquez attended Christ For the Nations Institute for youth ministries where God grew her love for ministry. She has a great heart for children and youth on their journey with Christ. She has worked at a pediatrics office and a child care center; God has continually led her in a path for children and now is continuing that great journey back into ministry!
Along this road she met her husband Isai, and they have been together for the past 7 years. Ashton and Isai can be found in Rockwall running around with their two dogs, watching cartoons or dominating in game night with their family.
