My name is Wayne Brunt and I live in Hallsville with my beautiful wife Ginger. We have 3 kids, Trevor, Autumn and Andrew. Ginger and I have been married 10 years this Dec. 30th and attended Grace Crossings UMC in Longview before my appointment to McCary’s Chapel on Nov. 1st of this year. I moved to ETX in 1980 after I graduated high school in Bryan, TX.

I work in the Oil & Gas Industry for Sentry Energy Solutions as a New Business Development manager. I am a former board member with the ETX chapter for the Fellowship of Athletes, and I currently serve on the board of the G.R.A.C.E Community out of Tyler. I enjoy spending time with Ginger walking our two labs, Bear and Cujo, going to the movies, vacationing in Michigan with family and playing sports when I can.

Emmaus Walk #76 changed my life when I truly saw the meaning of God’s grace shown to me through the love of the Emmaus community. It was at that point I decided to answer God’s call on my life and share what God has done in my life and enter the CLM (Certified Lay Ministry) program through the UMC. I will attend the Local Pastor Licensing School in June in Palestine to obtain my local pastor’s license.


God Bless,


Certified Lay Minister

I'm Cynthia White, the Certified Lay Minister serving as pastor of McCary's Chapel United Methodist Church.

In 2000, I married my husband Kevin White and moved to Gladewater, TX. Through him, I was re-introduced to the Methodist Church. I had been raised in the Methodist church, but my family moved and we didn't rejoin any church. As an adult, I'd been a member of several denominations and two non-denominational churches. 

Gladewater became my home, and the Methodist Church became my church home. Although I worked in the oil and gas industry with crazy hours and often out of town for months at a time on jobs, the Methodist church there allowed me to serve and develop my discipleship. In 2010, I began my journey as a Lay Servant in the classes offered by the District. In those classes, I learned the origins of the Methodist Church, the beauty reason within the denomination and faith. It was an eye-opening heartfelt homecoming! With God's help, I attended the Certified Lay Ministry classes and became one. 

In October of 2020, I was blessed to be able to come to serve McCary's Chapel in Liberty City, a warm and loving church that had a servant's heart for their community. They are a blessing to me and will be to you, too. Come and check them out!
