Our Ministry Team

 

Pastor Jeremy (Lead Pastor)2014-09-14 13.56.26

Pastor Jeremy Mueller began overseeing our youth ministry in January of 2008.  Since then he took on the role of associate pastor for a number of years, and in October of 2016 he was installed as our lead pastor.  He loves playing and watching sports of all kinds (a die-hard Boston Celtics and Indianapolis Colts fan!).  He is addicted to disc golf, superhero movies, coffee and Star Wars Legos. With all of his hobbies, it is truly amazing that he finds time to be a husband, father and pastor on the side!  However, his true passion is studying God’s Word and daily growing in his relationship with Jesus Christ.

Pastor Jeremy and his wife, Sarah, have two daughters, Vesper (3) and Rylie (1), and are expecting their third little girl in January 2017.

Pastor Dan (Associate and Teaching Pastor)

Pastor Daniel Mueller served as the head pastor of our ministry team at Hilltop from 2003 – 2016.  In October of 2016, he made the decision to step back from his role as head pastor, but he continues to minister within our church as an associate and teaching pastor.

He is a fresh mix of fun, enthusiasm and wisdom. His ‘out of the box’ approach to ministry has paved the way for the community of Hilltop that we experience today. His greatest passions are studying God’s Word, and seeking God personally through prayer and worship.  He is an inspiration to us all to daily pursue real life-changing encounters with Jesus Christ.
