Staff Team

Pastor Tom Weaver

Lead Pastor
I'm from North Carolina, and met my wife in Houston, Texas at a mega church. We moved down to the Rio Grande Valley for a trucking business, and I was captured by Christ about a year into our marriage. I've never been the same. I went into full time ministry,  and we planted churches for almost 10 years. We have three amazing daughters, and love San Antonio!
Our desire for Mission Church is to see discipleship happen on the local level and for churches to be planted all around the city and through the state. We are thankful for our Mission family!

Jesse Spradley

Executive Pastor
I am originally from Houston, GO ROCKETS, and have been married to my amazing wife Liz since 2005. God has graciously given us two awesome kids, and a fun dog! We have both been on staff with churches for many years and served in Honduras as Missionaries. I've also worked in the corporate world and I'm super thankful for the lessons learned that have been a benefit to the role I have here at Mission. We've lived in San Antonio since 2017 and have fallen in love with the city, the culture, and the TACOS. I began serving Mission Church in May of 2020 and am SUPER excited about learning how to do life and ministry with the amazing staff at Mission.

Daniel Duce

Discipleship Pastor
I’ve lived in San Antonio since 1995. San Antonio is my hometown. I really love this city and it's people. I began working in ministry in 2002… at various churches and in varying capacities. God has graciously allowed me, over the years, to do mission work in Brazil, Kenya, South Africa, Honduras, Mexico, and all over the United States. It was actually on a mission trip in Colorado in 2002 where I first met my beautiful wife and best friend, Anna. We’ve been married since 2004, and God has blessed us with two amazing kids, Haddon and Vera. I just love being a dad.
I have been at Mission Church since February of 2009. It has truly been one of the great privileges of my life to serve our Mission Church family over the years, to watch Jesus care for and grow His church, and to witness Him change people’s lives in our midst.
My hope for our Mission Church family is that God would continue to use us to make many more lifelong disciples of Jesus, to see individuals, families and communities transformed by the power of the good news of the gospel of Jesus, and to bring hope and lasting change to our city and the world beyond.

FUN FACT: I went to high school in Ensenada, Mexico. 

Holly Goff

Finance Director
I was born and raised in Austin and came to San Antonio for college. I came to know Jesus here in San Antonio through a co-worker who showed me the beauty of living in community with other Christ followers and inviting people who don’t know Him yet into Life with Jesus. I have been attending Mission Church since 2009 and am honored to be on staff here. My husband, Danny, and I have been married since 2010 and have 2 wonderful children. I’m excited to continue to see men and women live missionally out of an overflow of what Christ is doing in their lives.

Shayna Gutierrez

Children's Director
Hey there! I am from a mix of west Texas and small town Refugio, Texas. I came to San Antonio in 2004 for college. I dabbled in some backpacking and big adventures before embarking on my most favorite adventure of marriage and motherhood. I met my puro San Antonio husband Gary in 2010 and settled in to San Antonio homemaking. My job history is packed with all kinds of randomness but the majority of it has been child focused. We have two amazing kiddos of our own and after 6 years at Mission, I consider the kiddos here to be my babies too.
It is my desire to present ways for all children to experience the tangible goodness and righteousness of Jesus in hopes that they will continue down a path of getting to know Him personally. I hope to equip parents to be good stewards of their children and to provide support as they disciple their children.
