Lead Pastor | Rev. Dan Moyer
Pastor Dan served as the senior pastor at Penn Hills Alliance Church in Pittsburgh for the past 14 years. He and his wife, Gretchen, as well as their two children, Lydia (10) and Simon (8), joined us August 2019. Welcome Moyer family!
Worship Leader | Ben Masters
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.
Creative Director | Kathleen Blake
Kathleen joined the staff in April of 2018 as the director of student ministries. She transitioned roles in May of 2019. Kathleen is currently a senior at Crown College earning a double major in Christian Ministry and Biblical Studies. She is also earning a masters in Ministry Leadership. As if that weren’t enough, Kathleen gets to teach piano at her piano studio. In her free time, she enjoys meeting friends for chai lattes, watching Netflix with her dog, traveling, and cooking/baking.
Administrative Assistant | Angie Blank
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 14 years. When she is not assisting HLAC administratively, she enjoys teaching piano, wrangling her four sons, reading, and running.

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 recently completed 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.
