We are so excited to announce the calling of Pastor Travis Buerky as the new Lead Pastor of Hickory Ridge Community Church. Pastor Travis, his wife Anna, and their 3 children; Millie (age 6), Jackson (age 2), and Maxwell (3 months) are coming from Freedom Christian Assembly of God in Sterling Heights, MI.
Travis is an ordained minister with the Assemblies of God. Throughout his life he has served in various churches as a Worship Leader and Worship Pastor. In 2014, Travis and Anna moved to Sterling Heights, MI to serve as the Worship Arts Pastor at Freedom Christian Assembly of God under Pastor Aaron Hlavin, who is now the Superintendent of the Michigan Ministry Network. Travis has many character traits, strengths, and skills that will make him a great fit for HRCC. He is warm, approachable, and personable. He has experience leading multiple successful strategic vision projects including spearheading high-budget building projects, leading mission trips, planning conferences, and launching a church campus in Washington Twp, MI. He has strengths in big picture thinking, organization, and planning. He is an effective communicator and is incredibly creative and innovative. Most importantly, Travis has been able to be a part of seeing hundreds of lives forever changed by the power of Jesus Christ. Pastor Travis will no doubt be an inspiring leader, teacher, and mentor.
We can't wait to begin this new chapter in the life of our church as we turn our focus to the future, believing that God has a big calling and great things in store for Hickory Ridge Community Church.
