“Christian education should help people take their next step with Jesus Christ. So we seek to embrace people where they are, encourage them to follow Jesus, and equip them to minister to others. The heart of our Christian education ministry is Sunday School, which has open Bible study groups for all ages. I invite you to get connected to a Sunday School class, and then consider the other educational experiences that we offer. I believe you will find friends to help you down your road.”

“Children’s ministry should provide a strong Biblical framework on which to build the spiritual foundation of our children’s lives. As Christians, we must look beyond the cultural norms, beyond what those around us are doing, and we must maintain our actions in accordance with God’s Word. Our children are the future of the Christian faith. As parents, and as a church, we honor and glorify God by presenting the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all children through the teaching and the living out of God’s Holy Word. At HBC, we will serve as a resource to support and sustain the biblical foundation that is being taught and developed in the home of the child. We will introduce children to the attributes of God, to the concepts of worship and salvation, and prepare them for a personal relationship with Jesus Christ through the power of God’s Word and the work of the Holy Spirit.”

“My heart’s desire is to know the Lord and to make him known. I believe this happens as people hear and respond to Jesus’ request of, “Come and follow me.” My desire as a youth minister is to show students, from God’s Word, that life, now and for eternity, is in knowing and being known by God (John 17:3). I seek to encourage teenagers to pursue Christ in a greater way while also striving to make him known in every area of their lives.”
