Planned Giving & Trust Services


Did you know that most American will die without providing security for their family through a will? What is more, did you realize that if you don’t have a will the courts will decide how your estate will be apportioned between your descendants? That could develop large complications and not follow your wishes for your estate. At the Texico Conference we are concerned that our church family throughout West Texas and New Mexico has the opportunity to ensure that their wishes will be carried out through the provision of a will or trust. If, in the unlikely event you die prematurely, can you afford to allow the courts to decide who will have custody and look after your children? Please contact Jeff Metherell, Texico Conference Gift Planning & Trust Services Director, at 505-244-1611 or We can begin to help you make plans for the future.



Jeff Metherell

Planned Giving and Trust Services Director

Several years ago, Jeff was dramatically called out of the business world, where he had worked all his life, and into the Lord’s work. It was here that he finally found true fulfilment applying his education (JD from University of Denver and BA from Walla Walla University), experience (years in health care administration/consulting and the residential mortgage industry), and God-given gifts for the expansion of God’s Kingdom. For over two years he was the Association Secretary, Stewardship Director, and Trust Services Director for the Wisconsin Conference. Since April of 2014 he is grateful to have worked at the Texico Conference as the Association Secretary, Stewardship Director, Director of PARL, and Director of Estate Planning Services. In addition to his conference responsibilities, Jeff loves music, tennis, writing, and the mountains. Along with his wife, Tracie, he mostly loves ministering to promote healthy and spiritually vital churches filled with restored and God-serving individuals.
