In January of 2020, Colby Hetcel started as the Pastor of Youth Ministries.  His ministry role involves leading and overseeing the development of our church’s student ministry and supporting our children’s ministry.

Colby grew up on the west side of the state in Muskegon MI, and it was there where he met his wife and high-school sweetheart, Tori. Watching good movies, reading interesting books, and skateboarding from time-to-time are activities that he enjoys in his spare time.

Colby’s passion is helping families disciple their children and teenagers into scripture-shaped lifestyles and Christ-centered wisdom. 

His favorite Bible verse is:

“Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will be joyful in God my Savior.” Habakkuk 3:17-18 (NIV)
