The HLAC staff
Clint Hayslett – Head Pastor

Clint has been our head pastor since October of 2013. We have been so blessed to have him leading and teaching us these past 5 years. Prior to leading HLAC, he pastored Alliance churches in Loudonville and Oak Harbor, Ohio. Clint and his lovely wife, Ronna, have been married 25 years. Together they have four incredible children: Mitchell, Collin, Laurel, and Hayden. We like to joke that, along with pastoring, Clint serves as our head groundskeeper.  If he is not out on the church grounds mowing or spreading mulch, you can find him studying, preparing his sermons, reading, connecting with others, and spending time with his family.
Kathleen Blake – Youth Leader

We were pumped when Kathleen jumped on board with the HLAC staff in April of 2018. She’s brought us quite a few laughs and loves serving youth and young adults. Kathleen stays busy working on her degrees in Christian Ministry and Biblical Studies and teaching piano to several budding musicians. When she gets a rare stretch of downtime, she enjoys traveling, spending time with friends and family, hammocking, and doing anything creative.

Lori Hayes – Children’s Ministry Director

Lori loves working with children and is passionate about seeing them get to know the Lord. She joined the HLAC team in February of 2017. Prior to that, she served 20 years in children’s ministry and education at Christ Church at Grove Farm and Beverly Heights Christian Preschool- both in Pittsburgh. She is currently working to complete the Children’s Disciple-Making Leadership Certificate through CMAlliance University. Lori has been married to her husband, John, for 33 years. They have three adult children: Andrew, Amanda, and their son-in-law, Jim. In her spare time, Lori enjoys spending time with family, being in nature, camping, and hiking.

Ben Masters – Worship Leader

Ben is our longest-running team member and has been leading us in worship since 2012. Ben has played in various rock and pop bands in the Toledo area and formerly served at First Alliance Church, where he played lead guitar. We like hearing his stories about growing up overseas in Thailand and Cambodia as an “MK” (that’s church lingo for Missionary Kid). If Ben is not rocking out on his electric guitar, you can find him at Chick-fil-a, where he is a team member and in leadership training. In his free time, he enjoys spending time with friends and family.
Angie Blank – Administrative Assistant

Angie joined us in January of 2018 as our administrative assistant (which is a very hip and politically correct way of saying “church secretary”). Prior to this, Angie spent 3 years teaching music for Lake Schools and then 10 years staying home with her small children. She has been married to her highly supportive husband, Tony, for 13 years. When she is not assisting HLAC administratively, she enjoys teaching piano, wrangling her four sons, reading, and running. She loves the HLAC community, the staff, and her work at the church.
