Our Team

Staff and Leadership Team

HHICC is Staff-led and Elder-protected. This means that the staff makes the day-to-day decisions for the church under the leadership of our Lead Pastor. The Elders provide oversight concerning financial matters, staffing, spiritual unity, accountability for the Lead Pastor and prayer for the staff and church.  Our Lead Pastor also serves as an Elder. Our current Elders are Mike Flood, Matt Webster, Steve Donovan, and Scott Smith. If you would like to contact them, email us here.

Our Stewardship Team advises and serves our church through their unique gifts in the areas of finances and facility management. We have a volunteer treasurer, Bill Callihan, who works with our staff and our outsourced bookkeeping services with BELAY SOLUTIONS to give a "second look" to all our financials and to give our team regular reports. We also have volunteers who work with our staff to advise on interior and exterior needs for our entire campus. It is the role of the staff to raise up volunteers, leaders, and teams to do the work of the ministry in our church and community. You can reach out to staff members below by email or by calling our church office at 843.806.3399. Staff extensions are listed below.
