Senior Associate Pastor
Kevin serves as the Senior Associate Pastor at The Hill. Managing the church's facilities and numerous ministry groups grants him the opportunity to lead others into a growing relationship with the Lord. Whether he is leading Bible studies, men’s breakfasts, training leaders or guiding newcomers through NEXT on Sunday mornings, Kevin's goal is to let people know they are valued here at The Hill, while assisting them in finding the path for their spiritual journey in following Jesus.
Kevin and his wife Teresa, moved to the Bay Area in 2001 after years of full-time ministry in churches across the state of Oregon. Home and family are a true priority in their lives, and one of the things that they enjoy most each year is getting away on a family camping trip with four generations of their family. They have three adult children; Joshua and Kaylyn (their amazing daughter in love) Caleb and Taijannah. They truly love being grandparents to their three grandchildren, Troy, Weston and Marie and always look forward to the many adventures with each of them.
Tammy serves as the Pastor over Lighthouse Kids Ministries at The Hill Vallejo, ministering to children from birth thru 5th grade. She believes that a children’s ministry is where we have a chance to engage the hearts of children when they are most open to the Gospel. Her heart is for the babies to experience the love of Christ when they are in the loving care of the Baby Bay staff and receive prayer during the services. When the children of preschool and kindergarten age go to Waterfront Kids, they will start to get their feet wet and be introduced to Jesus, to learn, and experience His love and goodness and be His “Forever Friend”. When the Elementaryage kids attend The Pier, they are ready to be anchored in Christ, have the Word of God in the port of their hearts, getting ready to set sail and tell the world!
Her passion is Christ, her ministry is children and her goal is for children to have a lifelong, eternitylong relationship with Jesus.
She also believes that encouraging and partnering with parents can equip them so they can be the primary faith leader in their homes.
Tammy is married to John, and they have three adult children; Johnny and Mia (their daughter in love), Andrew, and Amber. They have the joy of being a grandparent to one grandson, Lucas. Both John and Tammy love to travel, and walk along the sandy shores of a beach, Tammy especially loves history and museums, and loves to paint, draw, write stories, and play the piano, all for the enjoyment of creating something new.
