The Open team

Open is a community, built by community, shaped by the whole community. Everyone is welcome, valued, and invited to be a part. Meet some of the team that helps serve the Open community.


Jonathan perry — Pastor (HE/HIM/HIS)

Jonathan and his wife Lindsey have been married 12 years and have two children, Hudson and Grace. Jonathan grew up in Panama City, Florida, but has been in Texas for so long most of the sand is out of his car. He loves Open and feels the call of his life is to help create faith communities that take seriously the radical love of God. Jonathan also loves soccer, learning, creativity, and people. Oh, and coffee — Jonathan really loves coffee.


Krystal Stroud — Worship leader (SHE/HER/HERS)

Krystal Stroud is a Dentonite, a worship leader, and a lover of all things glittery and gold. She is both a graduate from the University of North Texas (B.A. in English), and has recently earned a M.S. Degree in Strategic Communications from Purdue University. In her spare time, Krystal enjoys reading literature, fashion blogging, advocating for social justice, speaking Italian with international friends, and eating pizza. She has served in various roles in the United Methodist Church over the years and is so excited to be a part of the Open community!
