Our Purpose

Imitating Christ
Meeting needs (Ministry)
Proclaiming the Good News (Evangelism)
Assimilating people into the church (Fellowship)
Celebrating God (Worship)
Teaching the Word of God (Discipleship)

Based on the Great Commandment

“Jesus replied: ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart – soul & mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

Matt. 22:37-40

Based on the Great Commission

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Matt. 28:19-20

Jill-Eich-Pastor-HOTS

Jill Eich – Student Pastor


Jill began her career in ministry in 2009 but has volunteered in church for as long as she can remember. Having served in other roles within the church, none have been as fulfilling as youth ministry, so she couldn’t be more excited to be our Student Pastor. Jill and her husband Trevor have 3 daughters and enjoy spending time discovering all the scenic places Colorado has to offer! Jill and her family are thankful to be a part of the HOTS family.

Jay-Brady-Pastor-HOTS

Jay Brady – Children’s Pastor


After finally graduating from college, Jay moved to Colorado Springs to work with children and youth at a local church camp. After two decades in camp ministry, Jay’s job changed – but not his commitment to welcoming children in the name of Jesus. Jay is energized by spending time with our kids and by working with the godly team of ministry leaders that God has raised up at HOTS.
