Our Team

Camp Director

The Chavez Family

In 2012, the Lord guided Chris Chavez to lead the ministry of HHBC. He and his wife, Sara, have traveled in full-time Evangelism since 2006, ministering in church revivals, mission conferences, camp weeks, youth conferences, and vacation Bible schools. In 2017, the Lord led him to pastor Green Road Baptist Church.

Their hearts have been knit with Hoosier Hills since the first time he preached here in 2010, and they are thrilled at the open door of furthering the Gospel of Christ through this ministry. They have two children, Alayna and Isaac.
