Pastor Josh Yang

Assistant Pastor (Ann Arbor)

Pastor Josh joined the HMCC family in 2006 as a freshman at Northwestern University, where HMCC planted its first church plant. It was here that God grew Pastor Josh’s heart for the local church as he served as a coordinator, LIFE group leader, and worship leader, and in 2011, Pastor Josh first received his calling to pastoral ministry. In 2015, Pastor Josh moved up to Ann Arbor and joined the HMCC of Ann Arbor staff as an assistant pastor in 2017. He has a passion to see people fully understand God’s love for them, and to experience Him deeply daily and in corporate worship. His lesser passions include professional wrestling, cooking meat, and perfecting his chili recipe.

Kristin Zheng

Part-time Staff (Ann Arbor)

Kristin Zheng joined HMCC in the fall of 2011 after becoming engaged to her husband, Solomon. She graduated with an BA in English Education from Grand Valley State University and received a graduate degree in TESOL from EMU. After working in a Southwest Detroit high school for seven years (where she met her husband), she “retired” to become a mom to her two daughters, Grace and Lydia.

God has continually revealed to Kristin that His grace is sufficient in every weakness, which is especially life-affirming in this often-chaotic season of motherhood. He has given her opportunities to learn, grow, and stay reliant upon Him as she serves as a leader in the Covenant ministry and on staff to oversee the finances of our church.

In her free time, you can find her reading classic novels, baking, and watching epic science-fiction movies with her husband.

Miesha White

Part-time Staff (Ann Arbor)

Miesha came to HMCC in February of 2012 and became a member later that year after experiencing God working powerfully in her and through community. She graduated from the University of Michigan in 2006 with a BA in Psychology and Women’s Studies and is currently in classes at Moody Theological Seminary for Counseling Psychology. She currently works in the College of Engineering at the University of Michigan where she has been for the past 10 years.

Miesha feels a strong call to Women’s Ministry, specifically equipping women to build up other women by having a clearer understanding of their identity as Women of God. As she personally experienced freedom and empowerment in this area of identity she wants to make sure others are able to live their best life free from the bondage of inferiority and weakness. She serves as a small group leader, on the worship team and a church coordinator.

In her free time, you can find Miesha watching Netflix, eating delicious foods and spending time with her sisters and niece and nephew.

Dennis Kim

Program Director (Ann Arbor)

Dennis Kim has been a member of HMCC since his freshman year in 2013 at the University of Michigan. He graduated with a B.A. in Sports Management in the School of Kinesiology. During his college years, God slowly but surely revealed the joys of a relationship with Him and a greater purpose in life: to glorify God in obedience to His will. He joined as a staff intern in hopes of learning about and exploring a potential calling to full-time ministry in addition to having more time and energy to continue to invest in the next generation and leadership in HMCC. He continues to serve as a campus leader and church coordinator. In his free time, Dennis loves to read the Bible, play volleyball and guitar, spend time with friends and think about ministry.
