Pastoral Staff

Ern Menocal
Lead Pastor
Ern started Hills Church in the summer of 2012 with a team of 21 adults and 6 kids from Blue Sky Church, in Bellevue, WA. Formerly, Ern helped plant Blue Sky in 2004 right after graduating from Southern Illinois University with a BFA in Industrial Design. Ergonomic and anthropometry skills don't easily translate to church planting! Regardless, Ern's responsibilities at Hills include casting the overall vision of Hills Church, teaching and preaching, overseeing staff, and leader development as the church grows.
Flyn Sam
Associate Pastor/Worship Leader
Flyn is one of our pastors and main worship leader at Hills. He is responsible for helping to develop our small group system, preaching, leading and training worship band members, and leading worship on Sunday's.
