RockPile Leadership

Matt Netzer

March 11, 1977 - January 8, 2021

Founding Pastor

On January 8, 2021, Matt was killed in an auto accident. He is now worshipping at the feet of his Heavenly Father.  He leaves behind Sarah, his wife, Lucy and Micah, his children. He will be deeply missed.

Matt epitomized Matthew 16:24-25, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. For whoever wishes to save his life shall lose it; but whoever loses his life for My sake shall find it.” Matt sacrificed everything for his calling as a messenger of the gospel of salvation, the “Good News”.

Matt was married to the love of his life, Sarah, and they has two kids, Lucy and Micah who have helped build Rockpile Church and are active in the kids and student ministries.

Matt graduated from Southwestern Assemblies of God University in Waxahachie, TX and began pastoring in 1999. He loved Jesus, Texas, being on the lake, good music, drinking coffee, the outdoors, and old cars.

The Rockpile Church Board and staff are moving into the next chapter of ministry as we begin to search for the next lead pastor of the church. Thank you for praying for the church as we find “a way through the wilderness” and discover what’s next for Rockpile.

Jared Brown

Worship Pastor/Interim Lead Pastor 

Music has always been a big part of Jared’s life, but in the Summer of 2010, God captured his heart for worship Him and leading others in worship to Him. Since then Jared has grown in leading through various ministries such as YoungLife, Camp Peniel and Verus Strength and Fitness while also spending time as missionary and Bible student through Youth With A Mission.

Jared is the father of Elias (born July 2019) and husband to Kamila (married May 2018). He enjoys being creative, discipleship, learning, good stories, working out, drinking coffee, being outside and spending time with those he loves. 

Rebekah Jones

Children's Pastor

Rebekah is just a millennial who loves Jesus, kids, and craft coffee.  Born and raised in Austin, she moved to the Hill Country 12 years ago and has loved investing in the community ever since.  On most days you can find her in her favorite local coffee shop, reading, writing, and solving life’s problems one conversation at a time.  She's also a health and wellness enthusiast and takes fitness very seriously, almost as serious as Jesus! Children are one of her primary passions, and she feels incredibly blessed to serve the families of RockPile. 

Russell Holler

Youth Pastor

Russell and Melissa have been married since Aug 2009, were placed with their son Jonas in April 2017, and became a forever family in May 2019. Russell graduated from Berean School of the Bible in 2013, and has been involved with leadership in Youth Ministry since he was 16. He loves to talk Jesus, watching and discussing sports (especially OKC Thunder and NBA), drinking coffee, video games, comics, music, and more.
