29 May College Park Church Hires Two New Staff
Gary Dilley, senior pastor, College Park UB Church (Huntington, Ind.)
Nathan Hann and Paul Hirschy officially join the staff of College Park church on June 1. We are excited about the ministry they will provide to our congregation and community.
Nathan Hann will become our fulltime worship pastor. Nathan graduated from Huntington University on May 12 with a degree in Worship Leadership. He and his wife, Alyssa, have been active at College Park Church, and Nathan has served in various roles of music leadership since 2010.
In addition to overseeing the worship ministry of College Park, Nathan has taken over our technology and communication needs. He has helped us begin social networking at College Park, and is working with others on a newly revised website. In addition, he will help us in our interaction with college students. Nathan has been working with Pastor Mark Vincenti and the youth praise team, and is interested in encouraging musical opportunities for our children.
Paul Hirschy will join the staff as a half-time associate pastor. Paul is retiring from his role in the Advancement office at Huntington University, and is looking forward to returning to local church ministry. For those of you not acquainted with Paul, he served nine years as pastor of Park UB church in Bluffton, Ind., then worked at the United Brethren national office in the printshop (1978-1981), as Director of Church Services (1981-2001), and as bishop (2001-2005). He has worked for Huntington University since 2005.
Paul will work with such things as helping newcomers find a home at College Park, helping people find appropriate opportunities to serve God in the church and outside the church, developing the church’s prayer ministry, and helping with church administration.
