Rev. Wendy Miller Olapade

With a passion for creative and emerging worship, a heart for extravagant welcome and the provocative instincts of a prophet, Rev. Wendy inspires others to be their best selves and brings holy joy, an evangelist’s spin and a sense of celebration to all that she does. We consider her Sanctuary’s ‘Connector in Chief’!

Rev. Tom Hathaway

Pastor of Hillside Community Church

A connoisseur of fonts, chocolate lab owner, and crossfit advocate, Rev. Hathaway is originally from the boondocks of central New York state.
After earning his BA in anthropology at St. Lawrence University and spending several years in Japan as a high school English teacher, he entered the M.Div. program at Harvard Divinity School in 2008.
More so than anything, he believes that the goal of our worship and service is lives and communities transformed by Jesus mercy, love, and compassion. As pastor of Hillside Community Church, he shares in the leadership of many of our joint programs - you will probably see him around!

Luke Concannon


Luke Concannon has early memories of falling asleep at Irish family parties to the sound of guitars, singing, and dancing.

Upon meeting double-bassist John Parker in school, the two formed the folk duo Nizlopi (best known for the “JCB Song”), selling a million records in their twenties and deeply influencing a young Ed Sheeran.

Through the strain of recording and touring world-wide with a small family-run label, Nizlopi parted ways. Invigorated by a hitch-hiking trip to Palestine, Luke wrote his first solo album, Give it all, kindling the fire for a solo singer song writer career. EP In the Sea followed, with single releases including “Join the Liberation.”
