Hey there! I'm Andrew and I have had the privilege of leading this fantastic church we call Hillcrest since 2013!

 

I was drawn to a wildly loving ministry style at a young age and I want more than anything for people to meet Jesus like I have known Him! My wife Hollie is a Registered Nurse and has a special place in her heart for seniors. We have two children: Emily who is a nurse; and Caleb who is quite the gamer and has a great sense of humour. 

 

I love coffee and feel that one of the best ways to show people you love them is to sit down and have a meal with them. So maybe sometime we can sit down for a cup of java or a bite to eat?

Hi, I’m Kathy! I was blessed to join the Hillcrest Family on March 21, 2017 as the Administrative Assistant. That means, if you call Hillcrest, I’m the sunny voice on the other end of the line!

 

I have four children and a grandson who are the highlight of my life. Ryan, Daniel, Allison, Emma and William. I have believed in God my whole life but it was just 7 years ago that I began a real relationship with Jesus. I gave my life completely over to Him, and I have never been the same!

 

I love to spend time with my family, crocheting and watching reruns of Everybody Loves Raymond.

Hey there! I’m Jonathan, but you can call me Jon if that's easier. I’m excited to be part of Hillcrest Church, and serving our amazing and diverse younger generations! My goal is to create a space where every kid and teen can explore their faith and experience Jesus' love and acceptance in a safe, inclusive, supportive, and empowering environment. I know not all churches are able to do that, so I definitely do not take it for granted.

I grew up in the Chicagoland area, attended Bible School in the Pacific Northwest, and then made my way to Canada, where I’ve truly fallen in love with Atlantic Canada. 

I have completed my undergrad in Biblical Studies, a Master of Divinity, a second Master's Degree in Theology, a Post-Grad research certificate, and currently working on my Ph.D. in the field of contextual ecclesiology. 

I’m an avid sports fan, especially when it comes to my Chicago teams. Football is my absolute favourite, having coached and played for several years.

As a person with a multi-ethnic background, I proudly embrace the term “foodie.” I love exploring and enjoying all types of ethnic cuisines, especially Indian, Latin, Japanese, Chinese, Vietnamese, Malaysian, Filipino, Taiwanese, Korean, and Singaporean. I also love to cook!

I’d love to connect over a drink or a meal and get to know your story, so let’s make it happen!
