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.
