Meet The Worship Director

DIANE EAKRIGHT
 

Diane leads worship on Sunday mornings and has a heart for connecting with  God through music. She has played the piano in church since 7th grade - in the  old days along side someone playing the organ while singing the good old  hymns! And while she does enjoy the good old hymns, she also enjoys the  message in the new worship songs.

 

Diane has been married to Sam for 41 years  and they have 4 married children and 6 grandchildren (who she dotes on way  more than she ever did her kids - but what grandma doesn't?). She loves  watching football, reading a good book and spending time outdoors.

Kris HCC

Youth Outreach Coordinator

KRIS TADSEN
 

Kris is the Youth Outreach Coordinator. Kris has been married to his wife, Chelsie for 13 years. They have three daughters, Aubree, Grace, and Emma.  Kris and Chelsie own “Tadsen Tee’s” screen printing. In his spare time, he enjoys anything that requires being outdoors, especially golf.  Kris has a vision for youth ministry that goes beyond the conventional youth service. His heart is to create a safe place for young people to grow and excel together.  He wants to build a family for young people to come and see not just what they are capable of but who they are called to be.  Because of his own struggles growing up, he wanted to be able to help young people feel Gods Love. He took that passion and with the help of Hamilton Church of Christ he was able to start HYPE (Helping Young People Excel). HYPE is a youth Ministry focused on young adults ages 13-20. HYPE is for the youth in the area to gather and grow their relationship with Jesus. They participate in community service, mission trips, youth services, Bible Studies, and a lot of other activities. HYPE is a safe place to come and talk about anything and everything and no one is judged. Everyone is encouraged to come be apart of the family.
