The Antelope Valley Church (AV Reach) is very excited to have Steve and Keri Hiddleson moving to the Antelope Valley Church in August 2022. The Hiddlesons are overjoyed to be joining the work in the AV church this summer as Associate Lead Evangelist and Associate Lead Women’s Ministry Leader. They are impressed with the faith, love, and dedication of the disciples in the church, and look forward to partnering in spreading the good news. Having thoroughly enjoyed their two-year stint with the church from 2000-2002, they have always wondered if God might call them back to this special place. And God has! Steve and Keri are excited to love and build up the AV disciples in his Word, and mutually edify each other’s faith. They love sharing their lives (and food) having served in the ministry for over 20 years with the last 14 in Phoenix.

The Hiddlesons are excited to see how God will add precious souls to the ministry as they lead the singles and young marrieds. The goal is for the Hiddlesons to succeed the Marutzkys in leading the church in the future. Gregg and Cathy Marutzky have served in the ministry for 41 years and look forward to the Hiddlesons coming to partner in leading the church through inclusive leadership with the staff, shepherds, and membership. The Hiddlesons look forward to the rich experiences they will share with the AV family, seeking with one heart and mind to glorify our great God!
