Staff Team

Pastor Tom Weaver

Lead Pastor
Pastor Tom comes from North Carolina originally; his family has lived for 300 years in the same county. He moved to Corpus Christi, Texas to start a freight company in 1991, which he ran for 10 years. He met his wife, Selina, in Houston, TX at a church event. It was love at first sight—for Pastor Tom. Selina needed a little more convincing. They married in 2000 and moved to the Rio Grande Valley where Tom had extended his freight company. In  2001, Tom came to a radical understanding of who Christ is, and things have never been the same. The freight company was sold and full-time ministry began.

Tom and Selina began college work in 2002, and later went on staff at a local church as the pastor to families with students. Tom and Selina planted Logos Community in 2008, and Logos has planted two more churches since then which are thriving today.

Tom has a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work, and a Master’s Degree in Missional Leadership. Selina is an educator and also a zumba enthusiast.
For fun, Tom enjoys Jiu-jitsu and mountain biking—and also, the vast amount of awesome restaurants and venues in San Antonio for live music. Tom and Selina love to two-step and enjoy relaxed dinner with family and friends.

Tom and Selina have 3 awesome girls, and are excited about being in San Antonio.

Pastor Joseph Duce

Joseph moved to San Antonio from Dallas with his family in 1995 when he was 11 years old. Joseph joined the Army as an airborne combat medic, and after serving in the military, he returned back to civilian life in San Antonio. In 2009, he entered into a Life with Jesus and came to Mission Church. Joseph has done just about every volunteer role at Mission Church, leads a Community Group, and after completing a year long internship at Mission Church he came on staff full-time in 2014.  Joseph is currently pursuing a degree in Biblical Studies at Moody Bible Institute.
When he does find some down time he’s known to enjoy a good book on theology with a quality hand-crafted beer. He also enjoys doing Crossfit at a locally owned gym in Midtown San Antonio!

His passion is to know Jesus more and to make Him known.

Shayna Gutierrez

Mission Kids Director
She’s originally from West Texas but grew up in the small town of Refugio in South Texas.  Shayna graduated from UTSA in 2008…Go Roadrunners…. and spent the next two years working and traveling in Kenya, South America and China. Why would she come back from that adventure?! Well, when she returned to San Antonio in 2010 she met her handsome husband Gary. Shayna’s worked all kinds of random jobs; directing an orphanage in Kenya, running a ropes course for the Boy scouts of America, and marketing in the medical field. But all these experiences pale in comparison to when she entered into a Life with Jesus.

Shayna and Gary have two beautiful kids, Camila and Jonas, and are loving every minute of it. She likes it so much that she wanted to serve her church as the Nursery and Preschool Director…mainly so she can come up with awesome crafts for the kids! She and her husband love doing life in their community, checking out delicious restaurants in San Antonio and  dreaming about future travel plans.
