Pastor Andy and Misty met and dated during High School. They were married in 1991 and the Lord has blessed their relationship with a wonderful family. Daughters Taylar, Morgan, & Jayden, sons Dallas & Braedy, and 3 grandchildren, Aria, Charlie, & Bowen. Taylar & husband, Tell, recently returned to the Tomball area. Dallas & wife, Sarah, are the parents of Aria & Bowen. Braedy and wife, Rebecca, are the parents of Charlie.

In 1983, as a 12 year-old boy, Pastor Andy surrendered to the ministry. He graduated in 1995 from Baptist Bible College in Springfield, Missouri with a BA in Pastoral Theology. Pastor Andy began full-time ministry that same year; since then, he has given his life for the work of the Lord. In 1997, he began his ministry as a Senior Pastor, which has included churches in Texas and Illinois. Pastor Andy has served faithfully as our Senior Pastor since July 2008
Mark Taylor
Music Pastor

Mark grew up in Hamilton, Texas and graduated from Hamilton High School in 1982. He surrendered to the ministry in high school during his junior year. Mark attended Howard Payne University and had many opportunities to serve and grow in his relationship with the Lord. He studied music, but graduated in 1987 with his BA degree in Religious Education.

While in college, Mark met his wife, Michele Lokey, and they were married in July 1988. They have 3 children, Jessica Biffle who lives in Palacios, Texas, Jeremiah Taylor who lives in Carbon, Texas and Jade Taylor who lives with them in Tomball, Texas. Mark & Michele have 4 grandchildren.

Mark has served in several churches in Texas and Colorado as Worship Pastor and Music and Youth Minister. He came to Southwinds in August 2021 and has brought a heart of worship to our church. God continues to be a source of encouragement and joy to Mark. His life of Ministry has been a blessing and one that he enjoys every day. Mark loves the outdoors and really enjoys hunting, fishing, cooking, and gardening.

Tell Redlin
Youth Pastor
Tell and Taylar met while attending West Coast Baptist College in Lancaster, California. Tell received his bachelor’s degree in church ministry and surrendered to the call of full-time ministry during his time at West Coast. In 2019, Tell and Taylar were married at Southwinds by her dad, Pastor Andy Chute. 
After their marriage, Tell and Taylar were active in the Southwinds Elevate Program. During this time, Tell gained valuable experience in youth ministry. Soon after, God called Tell to serve at a church outside the State of Texas. Now, Tell is thrilled to join the staff of Southwinds Baptist Church as our Youth Pastor. He and Taylar are delighted and eager for the opportunities to serve God and the youth of Southwinds.
In January 2023, Bro. Tell & Taylar welcomed a new addition to their family, Skyla Rae.
