Brad Hough - Director of Student Ministry
A native to southern Indiana, Brad graduated from Ball State University in 2014 with a degree in Social Work, and in 2017 Brad and Jami (the wonderful woman who had just agreed to marry him) moved to St. Louis to attend Covenant Theological Seminary with a desire to pursue full-time youth ministry upon graduating. In 2019, Brad shifted from full-time studenthood to part-time and moved with his new wife to Brookston, IN to work at Camp Tecumseh, a Christian YMCA camp. In late 2020, however, the two of them both sensed God's call for Brad to look for full-time youth ministry positions and trusted Him to guide them to where He wanted them, which turned out to be Christ Community! Brad is thrilled to be at CCC with Jami and their baby girl, Theodora. When not at the church, he and Jami can be found playing board games, exploring the outdoors, and hanging out with baby Theo.

They married in 1990 and Kristin joined Scott on staff with the middle and high school ministry of Cru.

Kristin's passion for investing in the spiritual formation of others ~ her own 4 children, the women and children of CCC, and the students and staff at the local elementary school were she currently works as an Instructional Assistant ~ was birthed back in high school when her Cru discipler challenged her to be a multiplying disciple through Paul's instruction to Timothy: "And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others." 2 Timothy 2:2. In her free time, Kristin enjoys time with her family, playing board games an all things Cubs.
