Catherine is the oldest daughter of Pastors John and Alison. Although she grew up in ATX surrounded by Longhorn fans, she graduated from Texas A&M with a business degree (Gig ‘Em!) and has a strong desire for Impact to reach the X and Y generations. On the weekends, you can catch her running on the Lady Bird Lake hike and bike trail with her black lab.



Deborah is an educator who has a passion for sharing Biblical truth and the transformative power of God with this generation.  In addition to serving as a classroom teacher and administrator, she has spent the last two decades imparting to young people through children’s ministry.  A graduate from Oral Roberts University, Deborah holds a M.A. in curriculum development and an Ed.D. in Educational Leadership.  On an off-day, you might find her peacefully sipping coffee while working a jigsaw puzzle or enjoying a baseball game.



Thomas is a true Austinite, as he was raised at Impact, met his beautiful wife, and has continued to pursue Jesus as a true worshiper at Impact. His growing family includes a new baby girl and two fur babies, Gracie and Trunks! You can catch him cracking jokes, playing an instrument, vacationing at the beach or walking in the park with his adopted pets! We’d like to recruit Gracie & Trunks to the worship team, but unfortunately they haven’t quite harnessed their musical genetics yet.
