Pastors & Staff

Eric Daniel

Lead Pastor

"What I love most about pastoral ministry is working with people in their discovery of who Jesus is and what He has done for them. Teaching people about what God has said in the Bible is the most exciting experience because of the freedom it brings to the human heart."

Wendell Mathis

Associate Pastor

"I love pastoral ministry. The word of God is my passion and His people are my pleasure."

Darlene Washburn

Associate Pastor

"First of all, I am grateful for the opportunity and very honored to serve the women of HCC!  To me there is nothing like seeing women of all ages come together to worship and serve God.  I believe God has called us as a multi-generational community of women to serve him together shoulder to shoulder specifically in this time and I take great joy in leading our ladies.    I love seeing women’s lives changed as they take hold of the promises of God for their lives, some for the very first time realizing their value in the eyes of the Father.  I love being involved in raising women up to discover their gifts and talents and finding their place in the Kingdom. What an honor it is for me whether one on one, in a small group or through the preaching of the Word to lead women to a closer more intimate relationship with Jesus!"

Stacy Marks

Family Pastor

"Connecting families to each other, and most importantly helping them build their faith in Jesus has been the best thing to give my life to! I love God’s word, telling Bible stories to children, and I love helping parents connect their children to the Lord. I believe it is important to help our families build a strong spiritual foundation on the Word of God!"

Tyler Lowe

Young Adults Pastor

"All of us find ourselves at the crossroad of who are and who we want to be. The Young Adult finds themself at the epicenter of decision. It’s a joy helping them navigate the challenges of this life-stage through the Love of Jesus, the Power of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God. To see young adults identify with Christ,  discover their purpose, and thrive in community- that is the dream." 

Pat McConville

Youth Pastor

“For over 20 years as youth pastors our “Why” has never changed. We strive to lead young people into a thriving & growing relationship with Jesus. There is something special and rewarding when a student has that lightbulb moment and they begin to unlock their God given potential. It never gets old.”

Jen Swift

Worship Pastor

"We have all been created to live a life of worship and communion with God, to know Him and love Him with our lives. It is my great joy to lead the Hillside community in worship as we approach God together, acknowledging His faithfulness, goodness, power, and grace in addition to seeking His life-changing presence in our midst.  I absolutely love seeing people experience the joy, freedom, and blessing found in bringing God praise. This is what it's all about, and I am deeply grateful to worship alongside the Hillside community as we seek God together."
