From being a friend during a difficult season or wise counsel during a time of need, our Care Pastors meet people and minister to them right where they are in life with the goal of sharing the love and truth of Jesus. Meet our team of Care Pastors!

Rex Childress:


My wife and best friend Brenda, have been married forty-five years and have one son, three daughters, and twelve grandchildren, and a very special fur baby named Tilly. Brenda is Manager of Clinical Operations, with Fersenius Kidney Care Dialysis Centers in various states.  

My aim is to offer the ministry of presence as I care for our congregation. In my role, I can be a friend in a time of need, a cheer leader, or  serve as a counselor amidst life’s varying seasons. The greatest part of being Care Pastor for Woodland Hills Family Church is the opportunity to share Jesus Christ and how much he truly loves us with others during their most difficult times.

Don Rooks:


My wife Sheryl and I have been married 50 years on July 3rd. We have 2 children, 2 grandkids and one great grandchild on the way.  We have lived in Hollister, MO for 6 years. Our son lives with us and we have 2 dogs. I am also a  BIG Georgia Bulldog fan! 

It is with great joy that I lead the Woodland Hills Prayer Team. My wife and I have a goal that is to greet as many people as we can on Sunday mornings so that our hearts can be open to whoever God would bring our direction to be ministered to. Our hope for WHFC is that we continue to minister to people where they are and bring them to a place of growing in the love and knowledge of the Lord.
