Ron has been our lead pastor since 2009 and has a passion for all things related to God’s amazing grace. You’ll usually find him with a cup of coffee in one hand (something dark roasted) and a book in the other (again preferring a strong brew from Augustine, Luther, Lewis, Chesterton or Wodehouse), with classic rock playing in the background. Ron has been married to his high school sweetheart Deb since 1986 and is the proud father of two Texas A&M Aggies (Whop!), Austin and Madi.
Ricky Estes is a native Burleonite, born in Huguley and raised in the city. His passion is leading and disciplining others to seek God with all of their hearts and to see, know, and understand the love and relationship the Lord desires to have with them.
Michael is our lead worship leader and has been leading worship in various areas of ministry for 15 years. He has served as a worship leader in Shreveport, LA, Nacogdoches, TX, and Tulsa, OK before coming to Crestmont in the fall of 2010. Besides answering his calling to help connect people’s hearts to God through music, he has a passion for young adult ministry. He has a strong desire to help disciple the leaders of tomorrow in any way that he can. He is excited to serve at a church that has such a strong legacy of making an impact in the world. He looks forward to continuing to build upon that legacy as Crestmont continues to seek ways to lead the charge in pursuing new ways to engage the hearts and minds of the lost and to help point them towards Jesus Christ.
