Eric Barton and His wife Christy were born and raised in the Lufkin Texas area. From 2006-2013 they were in ministry in cities near Houston and then near Ft Worth. But since the summer of 2010 Eric and Christy began to feel a call to go back home. From this, the God sized dream of City Church started. Since that time it has been a journey to see God’s dream become a reality. In August of 2013 they moved back to Lufkin with the heart to see lives changed and restored by the power of God in our community. Eric, Christy and their 3 kids, Alyssa, Zane and Mackenzie, are exited about what God has already done and look forward to what God will do in Lufkin Texas.
