ext. 103

Hailey has been our Associate Pastor for Education & Children’s Ministry since 2011. Though those are her primary focuses at the church, she and her husband, Ben, have joyfully taken on other responsibilities since we entered an interim period starting in 2015.

Hailey was born and raised in a large Texas family. She and Ben have two wonderful, rambunctious children: Asher and Junia (you’ll see them, and you’ll probably know exactly who they are without anyone saying a word!).

She graduated from Trinity University in San Antonio in 2007, and after graduation she served as a Young Adult Volunteer for the PC(USA) in Seattle. She received her Master of Divinity from Princeton Theological Seminary in 2011.

Hailey enjoys a good conversation over a good cup of tea and loves exploring the beauty of the Gospel with God’s youngest children.

Ben has been our Associate Pastor for Youth & Young Adults since 2011. Before then, he served on multiple church staffs at a variety of churches from Texas to 5th Avenue in Manhattan. He graduated with a degree in English Literature from Trinity University. While at college Ben met the love of his life and future wife, Hailey, as well as felt the call to ministry for the first time. After college he received his Master of Divinity degree from Princeton Theological Seminary in 2010. Along with their designated roles, Ben and Hailey both have taken on extra responsibilities since the church entered a transition period in 2015.

Ben enjoys grilling and often incorporates into his understanding of Christian hospitality. He also loves running around outdoors and hiking new trails, trying to practice yoga, and spending time with Hailey and their two children, Asher and Junia.
