HCC Family, After much prayer and seeking the Lord’s leadership, we are pleased to announce that Conor Malis will be joining the staff team of Highlands Community Church as our new Worship Director. Conor and Natalie arrive this week!

Conor comes to us from Honolulu, Hawaii where he has served as Worship Director & Design at Hawaii Kai Church for the past five years. Conor is a strong vocalist, acoustic guitar player, and musician who has a proven track record of leading quality worship and building solid, committed teams. He has a passion to know God more and serve Christ with everything he is and has.

His wife Natalie is a graduate of NYU in photography. She is a great support to Conor as a musician on the team and a teammate in discipleship. She has a deep spiritual conviction to follow Christ and to help lead other to do the same. Conor and Natalie have a heart for discipleship and raising up the next generation they are newlyweds married on June 30, 2017.

Conor will serve as the Worship Director for HCC. His role includes leading the worship team/ministry for the Kent campus as well as partnering with me on a daily basis to plan and execute the many worship services, special events, and ministry needs throughout the year. I am super excited to have him on our team!

A note from Conor and Natalie:
Hello, Highlands! We are so excited to join the HCC family and begin this brand new chapter of our lives and yours together (and just in time for our first Pacific Northwest autumn!) We cannot wait to serve, worship, and fellowship with you all and we're truly looking forward to getting to know you as we begin doing life together! See you soon! God bless.

As you see them at Highlands please join us in welcoming them both to the HCC family and team!
