How did you start to go to HCM?
I joined HCM in 2009. My fiancée and now wife was a student at UW Madison School of Pharmacy. She attended the church before we got married. I immediately connected with the people. It felt like home. I loved serving with the other members and was greatly encouraged to grow spiritually.

What is your most memorable moment at HCM?
I have so many good memories from HCM. A few years ago, I remember coming back from the OIL conference (at that time, on the east coast) in the church van. We drove 14-16hrs. We were pretty tired after the conference. Cameron was driving and I was on the passenger seat. We shared how we were blessed for about 4 hrs while the others were sleeping. I was so blessed, and not even tired!

What is your favorite verse?
It is difficult to choose one particular verse, but one that I particularly hold dear to my heart is Rom 5:8 "God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us." I probably like this verse because I have sinned much. I was so ashamed of my sins. I try to run away as far as possible from Him, but in His great love, He brought me back to Him!

How did you start to go to HCM?
In 2010, I moved to Madison and was connected to HCM by a friend. I started coming to HCM every Sunday morning to help clean, vacuum, shovel snow, and take out the trash. As I was serving in these ways, God called me to consider being a worship leader. I soon realized that the real reason I was at HCM was because the church had been praying for a worship leader; HCM was praying for me and my ministry even before they knew me. Even before I came to Madison and even before I knew I was called to be a worship leader, God was already working and people were already praying for me.

What is your most memorable moment at HCM?
January 8, 2012. After going through a rough night, I found myself at church 5am in the morning on a snowy Sunday morning prepping to lead worship. One of the guys at HCM who had heard about my night got up early that morning to check-in on me at 6am. We didn’t do much talking. Just sat, cried, and prayed. This is memorable to me because I saw a guy who was willing to go the distance to care for me, someone he didn’t know well.

What is your favorite verse?
“But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” - 2 Corinthians 12:9 My greatest weakness has always been speaking and my stuttering tongue. Along with that comes anxiety and stress whenever I speak with others, especially in front of a crowd. This does not stop God from using my weakness to serve him. He has used my weakness to lead worship for over 10 years now.

How did you start to go to HCM?
I started coming to HCM when my roommate, Eric, introduced me to the church. We were in the same fellowship in college, so it was helpful to already have a friend at this church.

What is your most memorable moment at HCM?
My most memorable moment(s) at HCM was my first trip to Haiti in 2014. The time spent preparing for the trip and the experiences I had when I was there started me on a growth path that has changed my perspective on life.

What is your favorite verse?
I don't have a favorite verse, but my favorite chapter in the Bible is Isaiah 53. When I read it, I am reminded and taught of Jesus's character. It makes me want to love Him more!

How did you start to go to HCM?
As I was wrapping up school at Duke and getting ready to move to Madison for work, I heard that there was a group of Dukies there going to this church. They also told me there was a church basketball tournament during the weekend I was supposed to arrive. So when I got there I played in the basketball tournament and later started attending the Sunday services.

What is your most memorable moment at HCM?
My most memorable moment at HCM was getting married to my wife in Madison with many of my old high school and college friends, and also my HCM family.

What is your favorite verse?
Right now, my favorite verse(s)/passage is Psalm 27. This psalm is thought to be written by King David early in his life before he became king, and was hiding from King Saul, who sought to kill him. In verse 3, he writes about an army coming against him, seeking his life, yet being confident. Running around in the wild, without a home, in verse 4 he writes about seeking his dwelling in God's house and temple. At a time when he is an outcast, in verse 10, he says that though his own father and mother abandon him, the Lord will take him in. And in the end in verse 14, he determines to wait upon the Lord and commands his heart to take courage because he trusts that the Lord is coming to his rescue.

How did you start to go to HCM?
I had visited HCM a few times during my final years in college but because I wasn't from Madison, it was very infrequent. After I graduated, my uncle really encouraged me to start attending regularly and get more involved. I've been greatly blessed with that decision as HCM provided the gospel saturated community that I needed!

What is your most memorable moment at HCM?
The one that's shaped me the most would have to be the first Winter Retreat I ever attended. One of the messages was about radically loving the local church and what it would look like to center our life decisions around our commitment to our local church, not just where the job takes us. It challenged a lot of what I thought I knew about Christian living and continues to bring conviction to my heart.

What is your favorite verse?
There are so many! One that I always cling to is Ephesians 2:8-9, "For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast." I struggled for a long time with the concept of, "have I done enough?" This passage always humbly reminds me that the gift has already been given and is not contingent on what I've done but rather influences how I will continue live.
