Our Church


At La Porte First we want to create an environment where people are connecting to God and others, as they pursue a life of growth and fulfillment in order to impact the world around them. Our goal is to serve our community, to meet the needs of individuals by being the hands and feet of Christ. We believe that both our building and each member of our staff and ministry team have been placed in the city of La Porte at this time to serve the families of this community.

Brandi Holder

Media Director

Brandi's role here at La Porte has changed many times, but she is still a vital part of our team.  Her vision and creativity to reach those around us, is why she is in the media department.  She manages everything from our social media accounts, to our in house "production".

Brandi and her Husband met right here in our church many years ago, although they did not start dating until much later.  They have been married for almost 15 years and have 2 boys, Lucas and Henry.  They love baseball and now enjoy watching their kids play t-ball.


Tracie Tevault

Outreach Coordinator

Tracie's passion for the community is the reason she is on our team!  She knows the true mission of the church is outside of our building, and that loving on the community around us is vital.

Tracie and her husband Bob, met in a coffee shop years ago and now have a son, Abraham. Tracie and Bob still have regular date nights trying local coffee houses in the area.
