Mitch Harding

Mitch & Regina have been serving at Buckingham Road since 1996, when they moved back to their hometown after graduating from Texas Tech University. Mitch was raised catholic, but understood and felt there was much more to his relationship with Christ - but God has a plan. Living in Australia, Mitch’s family was relocated back to the USA, and moved to Wylie, TX. That’s when God led him to Regina in High School, where they met, studied and Mitch was baptized in 1988 @ Wylie Church of Christ. Since moving back to Garland, they have been serving with various ministries (Youth, Jam Class, Children’s Ministry, Long Range Planning) and have grown their family spiritually and in size!

They are parents to two sons Tucker & Cameron, and one daughter Micah. Tucker is married to Emily Pence Harding, and is currently working towards his Masters at Texas A&M, while Emily is teaching Middle School math. Micah is a junior at Texas A&M, and Tucker, Emily and Micah all serve with AFC (Aggies for Christ) and attend A&M Church of Christ. Cameron is entering his Junior year at Naaman Forest HS, and is very active with the BRCC Youth and works with the AVL Ministry. In September 2016, Mitch accepted the call to shepherd, and continues to work as an Architect designing churches and faith based institutions, while Regina is a certified Music Teacher substituting in Garland ISD. They feel blessed to call Buckingham Road their church family, and look forward to serving for many years.
