YOUTH Ministry

Student Ministries at GTC are the heartbeat of our church! It is a place for students to find a place to belong, develop great relationships and learn more about God. Each week, students from 7th-12th grade experience fun games, great worship, exciting speaking and small groups to engage them in discussion.

Eathan and Kaylee Hakker

Eathan and Kaylee both grew up in Hanford and have attended Glad Tidings Church since birth, so GTC is truly home for them!! They have been married for just over a year and have recently began serving as Youth Directors. They are also both involved in the worship team ministry. Eathan plays the drums and Kaylee leads in song and plays the piano/keyboard. They love guiding students to discovering who they are in Christ, as well as building relationships to last a lifetime!
