Bryn Starnes

Student Ministry Coordinator

Hi! My name is Bryn Starnes. I grew up in Tyler and have worked in ministry in different capacities since high school. In college, I spent some time traveling with a youth leadership ministry as well as in Africa with a missionary family. I graduated with a degree in Leadership and Development Communications.


I met my best friend and husband, Mason, while we were on summer staff at Pine Cove.  I feel very blessed to have the opportunity to serve the Lord and adventure alongside him!

Mason and I have been a part of the South Spring family since 2015. We love this dysfunctional family as well as the growth, challenge, and deep community it provides.



I love getting to know new people and spending time with the friends I have been given! I enjoy anything outdoors, including hiking, mountain biking, and camping. I love a good cup of coffee, music, travel and any good competition.  A game night or campfire with friends are favorite pastimes! Also, as a true dog lover, I can’t leave out my favorite pups, Nala and Mowgli.

I am so thankful to partner with you all in the ministry of the Gospel. Together as a church body, I pray that we can love others deeply and fully with the love we have first received from the Lord. I look forward to meeting each of you! To God be all the glory for the work He is doing in us.
