RICK HAYS

SENIOR PASTOR

Rick joined Orchardville Church as the Youth Pastor for Modified Youth in January of 2017 and transitioned into the Senior Pastor position in June of 2021. He spent his early years growing up near Chicago (loves the Cubs) and moved to Southern Illinois with his family when he was in junior high. He gave his life to the Lord at a young age, but didn’t grasp the relationship Jesus wanted with him until he was out of high school. It was at this time he felt called to ministry. His passion for working with youth began when he began volunteering to help out with the youth group at his church. He volunteered as the youth pastor at a local church for eight years. During this time, he enrolled in college and received his Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education/Special Education. He taught in the area for a few years before beginning his ministry here at Orchardville Church. 

Rick is married to Sara, his partner in ministry, and they have two children; a son named Jaxon who passed away in July of 2022 and a daughter named Brylin. He enjoys spending time with his family, his friends, movies, reading, and coaching sports. Rick knows ministry is his calling and his heart is for as many people as possible to come to know Jesus as their Savior and best friend.

MARK MILLER

FACILITIES MANAGER

Hi, my name is Mark Miller and I am the Facilities Manager here at Orchardville Church. My job is to maintain and make improvements to the buildings and grounds as needed. I prepare the buildings and grounds before and after services and events. I also help other staff members prepare their areas of ministry.

 

I married my high school sweetheart Jennifer in 1990. We have two boys and two girls and have recently begun our adventure as grandparents. We have been attending Orchardville Church since 1998 and love being apart of this church family. I have been employed here since the spring of 2016. The outdoors is where I like to spend most of my time. I enjoy working with my dad and my sons on our farm. I also enjoy riding my dual sport motorcycle and four wheeler, but spending time with my family is at the top of my priority list.

 

Working at Orchardville Church is something I feel God has prepared me for through previous jobs and experiences. I love the atmosphere here and am blessed to be a part of the ministry of this church. It’s exciting to see people as they grow in the Lord by reaching, teaching, and serving others.

JAKE CAPPS

YOUTH PASTOR/MEDIA

Jake grew up in church and was part of Modified Youth in its early years. Jake's teenage years with Modified Youth made a huge impact on his life which led him into God's calling of working with youth. Soon after high school, his faith continued to grow and he began helping lead area youth. Jake has been a youth leader for most of his adult life and came on as our youth pastor in November of 2022. 

Jake is married to Hannah, who also has a passion for leading youth, and together they strive to share God's love with teens and young adults. Jake and Hannah have twins, a daughter named Sailor and a son named Judah. Jake likes to spend his free time with family, listening to music, and playing bass. Jake wants to share the love, comfort, and strength only God can provide with people who desperately need it...teenagers.
