Carl Hetler Leading Growth Groups at LSC

Posted: December 3, 2010 in Leadership, Living Stones Church

Beginning December 2010 we have a new Growth Group Ministry Leader at Living Stones Church!!!  It is Carl Hetler!!

FIRST – let me thank my wife, Kelly Barrington, for the years she has served in this capacity and let me, as a proud husband, say – “well done” and you are sexy (hey…it’s my blog…she’s my wife…and who knows where this might lead) 🙂

Kelly took a full-time sub position at Monroe School which was no problem at all because God sent Carl and his family to Living Stones Church a year ago and Carl is most awesomely equipped to lead our Growth Groups in new and exciting directions as we move forward.

Carl is currently finishing up his Ph.D. in Educational Studies from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.  Prior to moving to South Bend he served as a Pastor of a Evangelical Free Church in Oakland, CA.  He has a lot of experience and passion for discipleship, multi-cultural ministry, mission, and a breadth of experience in just about every facet of congregational life.

Carl is married to the most excellent Heather who is a speech therapists at McKinley Elementary School.  They have three children – Erik, Anders, and Grace.
