Pastor

  • Jeff Hatton

    Senior Pastor

    Jeff Hatton has ministered to college students at Brown University, Harvard, M.I.T., Boston University, and other surrounding campuses in the Boston Metro area. He has also started campus ministries in the former Soviet Union, especially the Central Asian Republics. Jeff is a graduate of the University of Massachusetts, Dallas Theological Seminary, and received his doctorate at Truett Seminary.  Together Jeff and his wife Nancy have a calm quiet home of 5 children (Cal 21, Bryn 19, Knox 17, Belle 15, and Ty 6).

Candidate for Ministry

  • Collin Coats

    Youth Director/Candidate for Ministry

    Collin currently works full-time for Redeemer leading the youth ministry as well as providing operational oversight to Redeemer's various ministries. Collin has sensed a call to ministry since high school and has experience in full-time ministry leading youth, college, and adult ministries. Collin is a graduate of Baylor University and has a Masters in Biblical and Theological Studies from Knox Seminary. In 2018 he sensed it was time to start the process to get back into ministry and, unbeknownst to him, a position at Redeemer was opening. Collin began the process of serving at Redeemer and is currently a candidate to become an ordained pastor at Redeemer, which entails being under the care of the North Texas Presbytery, serving a 1+ year-long internship, being examined by the Presbytery in areas such as Christian experience, Bible content, doctrine, original languages, and much more. By God's grace, Collin will become an ordained pastor at Redeemer in the spring of 2020.
