Volunteer Leaders


Dave Smith-Music Director

Dave is a dedicated volunteer who loves the Lord, singing, and worship. He directs the Hillside Sanctuary Choir as well as helping or leading  worship every Sunday. He and his wife Theresa have two grown sons and four grandkids. He can be found at Stephenson Electric during the week.


Chris Knowlton-LifeGroup Director

Chris, along with his wife Shelly have lead a Life Group for over a dozen years, so it’s no surprise to find out he’s passionate about them!  Chris is dad to eight kids, and has been a member of Hillside’s leadership team for over 10 years.  By day, he is a financial advisor, and is convinced that being part of a Life Group is crucial to individuals’ spiritual growth, and is vital in order for a church body to be at its best!


Tim Raker-LOGOS Director

Tim and his wife Elaine have been part of Hillside for over 28 years.  Their daughters Tonia and Renee were brought up through Sunday School and youth ministries and now 3 of thier grandchildren are in these ministries.  It is with humility and the assistance of our staff, that Tim leads in this ministry.  It is his hope that all who attend Hillside would fit in  Logos to develop a relationship with Christ by learning more and more about Him and then sharing that life saving knowledge with others.


Mark Prochazka-Missions Director

Mark leads our Missions team with passion for the lost.  He is a dedicated volunteer that helps the church in many areas.  Mark and his wife Rita our faithful servants to the Lord and His mission.
