Our Staff

Lead Pastor

Over nearly thirty years, our church has had two fantastic pastors, Bill Hyer and Tom Pitman.

God is active in his Church and living, leading and guiding his people to greater joy in him and effectiveness in reaching the world – sometimes that requires moving people around; so, as of May 2016, we are looking for the person God would have serve as the lead pastor of our church.

In the meantime, we have several teachers from our presbytery and staff stepping into lead our Sunday mornings. We expect change to happen in life, in our staff and in our body, and we are excited to see what God is going to do as he continues to establish leaders in our body as we follow the direction and passion of our elders.

Laura Putnam – Director of Christ Church Kids

She has a big heart for kids and her passion is to see them nurtured with God’s love and truth.

Laura and her wonderful husband, Bill, have 8 children,  2 more by marriage and two grandchildren. Their kids ages range from toddler to twenty something with spouses. All love Jesus and follow Him. Many are involved with our church family. Laura has been teaching k-12 for over twenty five years – her love for kids to learn and apply themselves is evident.

Laura enjoys organizing various activities that are fun and inspiring for our Christ Church kids, as well as equipping them to minister to others.

The kids ministries are blessed with Laura and the many church volunteers who teach and help in many ways.

Lisa Burdette – Nursery

Chris Alvarez – Director of Student Ministries

Refuge City Students, our youth ministry, is born out of Chris’ desire to see students welcomed in grace and challenged by truth. Jesus loves people and comes to us in our brokenness and struggle, then leads us in meaningful change, to be more joyful and loving, more like him.

His desire to see young people become passionate about what is ultimately valuable, Jesus himself.

Chris and Abigail are sojourners from the great state of Texas. They married in 2014 and moved to South Carolina at the end of 2015, to be a part of what God is doing at Christ Church.
