Becky Durr is our Administrative Assistant. She has lived in the North Shreveport/Blanchard area all of her life. She graduated from Northwood High School and attended Northwestern State University. Before becoming the Administrative Assistant at NorthPoint, she was a long time member of here. Becky enjoys singing in the Praise Band and enjoys spending time with her grandchildren when she is away from the office. After visiting several churches without finding one that she felt was home, when she visited NorthPoint, she knew right away that she had found her church home.
