What We Believe

Understand where we stand

Senior Pastor: Michael Mitchell

Rev. Michael Mitchell is an ordained Assembly of God minister. He holds a B.A. in English from the University of Texas at San Antonio, a Th.M. from Dallas Theological Seminary, and is about to defend his dissertation for a Ph.D. in Systematic Theology at DTS. He is writing his dissertation on the intersection of systematic theology and aesthetics, and currently teaches in the Bible and Theology Department at Southwestern Assemblies of God University.

In the last 25 years, he has been a professional musician, free-lance fiction writer, journalist, satirist, carpenter, contractor, literature teacher, and rhetoric instructor—before he finally gave in and accepted God’s call on his life as a minister of the gospel. He pastored First Assembly of God in Stockdale, Texas, for two years before moving to the metroplex to attend seminary. He served as Associate Pastor at Church On The Hill for 4 ½ years under Jerry Weiss before Pastor Weiss’ retirement. His wife Carrath is a senior English teacher, and they have three boys: Elijah Coltrane is 21 and a senior at Texas A&M University, Isaiah Ellington is 20 and a junior at Trinity University, and Zechariah Armstrong is 13 and an 8th grader.

His hobbies include hunting, fishing, gardening and smoking a fine brisket to perfection. He and his two older sons formed The Subliminal Gypsy Band, and recorded their first concept album in March of 2014. They are currently writing and composing another one

Mike combines an energy, sense of humor, and common touch to a life of devoted study of the Scriptures in order to be the best possible shepherd and friend he can be. He believes there is no spiritual growth without discipleship, and there is no discipleship without friendship. He is accessible and willing to work with anyone who considers himself a fellow-laborer in the gospel. Email him at michael@churchonthehillag.org.

Favorite movie: The Blues Brothers and Life Is Beautiful

Favorite music: blues and jazz

Favorite band: Pink Floyd

Favorite novel: A Clockwork Orange (Anthony Burgess) and The Sound and The Fury (Faulkner)

Off-The-Wall Fact: only pastor’s office you’ll ever see with pictures of Charlie Parker, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, and Alex from Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange all on the same walls.

Executive Assistant: Abigail Haenni

Abigail is currently studying Intercultural Studies at Southwestern Assemblies of God University. Her future plans include graduate school, a family, and serving the Lord on the mission field. In addition to serving as the administrative assistant at Church on the Hill, she is an avid journaler, tea enthusiast, and amateur artist. Email here at abigail@churchonthehillag.org.

Favorite movie: Around the World in 80 Days

Favorite novel: The Count of Monte Cristo

Favorite Band: Dvorak

Hobbies: art

Off-The-Wall Fact: One time, in an attempt to cook beans, I soaked them in a mason jar for a week, and the jar exploded in my dorm room closet, all over my clothes. The smell was unbearable. Still perfecting my bean recipe. 

 

Associate Pastor: Matthew Anderson

Matthew Anderson grew up in the DFW metroplex, the son of ministers. As a child, his sweet spirit and earnest devotion to good led many to believe that he had been set apart by God for ministry. He played the drums and had a great love for music, so it’s not surprising that he ended up gravitating toward music ministry at Church On The Hill. He was saved at the age of 10 and preached in his father’s church at 15. A man of unimpeachable moral integrity and character, Matthew is one of the most dependable human beings to ever serve in ministry. To spend 10 minutes with him is to understand the gracious love of Jesus Christ. Email him at matt@churchonthehillag.org.

Favorite movie: The Avengers (this preference is not, apparently, shared by Shaun!)

Favorite novel: Lord of the Flies

Favorite Band: The Subliminal Gypsy Band (they played at his wedding!)

Hobbies: drawing, watching movies with his wife.

Off-The-Wall Fact: When the pastor sent him to the grocery store to buy hot sauce for the men’s breakfast once, he came back with some strange Tobasco-based concoction instead of salsa, like a true Texan would have known. This earned him the nickname “Hot Sauce,” and a lifetime banishment from all kitchen-related activities.

 

Youth Pastor: Nicholas Brincefield

Nick is originally from Greenville, Texas. He moved to Waxahachie last year for Bible college, and has 3 roommates—and is about to add another one. He is the oldest of three children, and is majoring in pastoral ministry. Email him at nicholas@churchonthehillag.org.

Favorite movie: Megamind

Favorite novel: 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea

Favorite Band: Metallica

Hobbies: music, video games

Off-The-Wall Fact: Regardless of what topic I want to talk about, I tend to always introduce it with the phrase “listen.” Mostly to make myself listen to my own thoughts.

Children's Pastor: Harmony Russell

Harmony Russell

Harmony was born in San Angelo, Texas, and grew up in ranching country. She is the oldest of two children. Her mother is a pastor in San Angelo, and she feels called to sharing Jesus Christ to children who lack this understanding. Email her at harmony@churchonthehillag.org.
