Pastor Todd (often known as “PT”) was born and raised in the Houston area in a pastor’s home. He comes from an extensive background in ministry having been trained under his father Dr. Charles Dunn and attending Arlington Baptist University from 1982-1986.
Married to the love of his life since July of 1990, the Lord has blessed Pastor Todd and his wife Michelle with 3 incredible sons: Brady (age 22), Blair (age 19), and Brett (age 14). The entire family is actively involved in the ministry of 2nd Mile.
After serving as Student Pastors from 1992-1996 at the Rolling Hills Baptist Church in Lancaster TX, Pastor Todd and Michelle felt called to serve for 11 years as the Associate Pastor of the Central Baptist Church. In November of 2007, Lakewood Baptist Church brought Todd on staff as the Senior Pastor, and it was under his leadership that the rapidly declining church began to experience some growth. Yet over time, the Lord began to plant the vision in Todd’s heart to relocate the church to a place where they could thrive and grow and in December of 2017, God blessed the church’s steps of faith by providing them a new home in Fort Worth under their new church name: 2nd Mile Church.
Pastor Todd loves sharing God’s Word each week, and it has always been his desire to see people step out in faith and follow Christ. His dream for this church is to see the ministry of 2nd Mile literally live out its name and go the second mile in service and ministry to the community.
Pastor Todd enjoys spending time with his family, watching sports and is an avid fan of the Dallas Cowboys and the NY Yankees. He and Michelle have been in full-time Christian ministry for 27 years and are excited to see where the Lord will take them next!

Bella was blessed with an opportunity to lead worship with her cousin, Natasha Bure, at 2nd Mile’s Outbreak 2018. She immediately fell in love with the church and its mission. She thought “I’m home – this is where the Lord is calling me.”
Through prayer and seeking counsel from her parents (whom she counts as her most important mentors), pastors and peers, Bella made the decision to move to Fort Worth to serve as 2nd Mile’s Worship Director. Her desire and passion to lead others into fellowship with Christ is evident and she is excited and blessed to have this extraordinary opportunity to showcase her special talents.
