Our mission is to provide a spiritually rich atmosphere where every teen can feel safe, challenged and driven to become the best disciple of Jesus Christ possible.
It’s tough out there. Church should be that safe place where lasting relationships are built through a passionate pursuit of God’s presence and through a solid community of life-long friendships.
Tyler and Bailey Hiatt are natives of Northeast Kansas, and while relative newcomers to the Wichita Area, they are no strangers to the joys and challenges of Children’s and Youth Ministry. They have hearts to reach young people exactly where they are and to usher them into a personal relationship with the Lord.
“Hi, my name is Tyler Hiatt. My wife Bailey and I are so excited to be leading the young people of The Altar! We love our Lord, and we love to love on his people. My wife and I believe there is a call on our lives to reach this generation for Christ, so that we might see a nation turn back to Him. We are committed to walking through the ups and downs of adolescence with each of the teens that comes through the Altar’s doors.
Our post-modern culture has replaced absolute truth with a grand spectrum of “feelings” which, instead of bringing freedom, has brought on an existential crisis in the hearts and minds of the younger generations. I’m encouraged to find that as these young people search for answers, they are craving something that is genuine and real. The Bible tells us that, “The world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever.” – 1 John 2:17 Bailey and I are making it our mission to help these young people find sure footing in the boundless and redeeming love of the Savior, Jesus Christ.
