While he is fond of making sure everything is ready for those God sends our way, he looks most forward to greeting both new and familiar faces each week. He and his wife, Nancie, raised both their children, Aryn & McKenzie, in Austin. In addition to ministry, Kevin loves listening to tech podcasts while running or cycling to stay fit.

Daniel and his amazing wife Natalie are graduates of Lubbock Christian University. Daniel also graduated with a Master of Divinity degree from Abilene Christian University. When Daniel isn’t hanging out with Natalie or his three children Kason, Max, and Zoe, he loves to be outside riding his bike.

Andrew Lang

Andrew grew up in Abilene, TX and worshiped at Highland Church of Christ. He graduated from Abilene Christian University with a degree in Theatre, showing him the power that story has in sharing Christ with the world. A heart for ministry was placed inside of Andrew that has been nurtured through his years in the youth group, serving in leadership roles at ACU Leadership Camps, and the continual grace that is offered by our great God. His goal is not to help shape popular, well-liked, or “normal” teens, but teens who have a personal relationship with Christ and joyfully follow Him.
