Pastoral Staff

Kevin Huston

Mike Haynes

Lead Pastor and Elder

Worship Pastor and Elder

Kevin’s just a normal guy, who functions as preacher, teacher, theologian, counselor, and dad. He joined the staff in the spring of 2009 and leads all things teaching and leadership oriented around The Shack, but mainly he just tries to make church fun! But other than what he does around the Shack, he’s got an awesome wife (Stephanie), two sons (Keagan and Brennan), and two dogs (Darby, and Tucker). Kevin is also an avid golfer and Notre Dame fan.
Mike’s just an honest, down to earth, guy who never imagined he’d be doing ministry and then God showed up in his life in some big ways. Mike joined the staff the summer of 2011 and leads all things musical and worshipful around the Shack.  Other than all the stuff he does around The Shack though, Mike’s a huge Clemson fan and enjoys all things sports and cars especially his Mazda MX-5, better known as a Miata (Mike has one that is British Racing Green and named Scott 2.0).
