Gareth Murray Jr.
Gareth is responsible for the overall leadership of the church. During Sunday services Gareth works hard to give everyone in attendance a clear vision for how to start applying the life-changing principles of the gospel first thing Monday morning. For fun he enjoys amusement parks, playing music, reading, and hanging out at home.
Gareth is a native of Silver Spring, MD. He graduated from Penn State University with a B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering and received the M.Th. in Biblical Studies from Spurgeon's College in London, England. Gareth has spent several years overseas serving communities across Europe, Africa, and Asia as a teacher, church-planter, pastor, and musical artist - and he brings these experiences with him in building a growing multicultural ministry here at Hillendale.
Gareth is married to Tara who is a lawyer passionate about social justice. They live in Stafford with their three children.
