Haven Field is to be a church that is Christ-led, congregationally-governed, elder-guided and deacon-served. At Haven Field major decisions are made by the church while the elders and teams guide the church in that decision-making process.
Todd Harrington: Lead Pastor
As pastor of Haven Field Community Church, my main areas of involvement relate to vision, teaching and leading a community of grace-filled people learning to live in the way of Jesus. I am a graduate of Auburn University, a graduate of Southwestern Theological Seminary as well as a graduate of Drew University. I have served in ministry on church staffs in Texas, Florida and Alabama. I am glad to be a part of leading Haven Field for the purpose of connecting the disconnected to be restored to live on mission with Christ. My wife, Jennifer, and I have been married since 1998, and we have three children: Allie, Emma and Jack. I enjoy playing basketball, writing and DIY home projects. email Todd
Jeff Hindman: Worship Pastor
What an honor it is to be a Worship Pastor. I love that God uses our worship team each week to usher people into His presence. I have been leading worship in one aspect or another since 1996. I have traveled full time, and I have also served at established churches. I love leading worship in the context of the local community of believers that are doing life together.
We strive each week for our worship to be genuine. We long to foster an environment where people are free to enter into worship at whatever pace they are comfortable. Freedom is not everyone doing the same thing; freedom being who God made you, in His presence.
My wife, Tanya --and our two children, Anna Kate and Grant-- love living in community as a part of Haven Field. It is awesome to grow together as a part of this church. email Jeff
Patrick Finley: Communities/Dojos Pastor
I can't tell you how excited I am to serve Haven Field and connect with the mission of Christ. I feel God calls each of us to go out in our neighborhoods and connect to those that live directly around us and I want to see others live that out in their daily lives. I look forward to working with community leaders and developing Discipleship Dojo's as people grow in their relationship with Christ and connect within their communities. Furthermore, I am also very excited to learn from Todd, growing and developing as a future church planter. Currently I'm in seminary and have served church communities in Alabama and California. I live in the Homewood area and enjoy fishing and cycling, but not at the same time. Email Patrick
Mandy Hewitt: 3PM Ministry Leader
I have been working and volunteering in youth ministry since I graduated from high school. There's something about seeing God work in the hearts of teenagers as they transition from children to adult Christ-followers that captures my heart. I am passionate about discipleship and making disciples who disciple others and am humbled every time God uses me that way. I grew up in a small Tuscaloosa town but moved to Birmingham to attend Samford in 2006. I have been living and working here ever since. email Mandy
Erin Tate: Discipleship Ministry Leader
Erin has joined our staff team on a part-time basis to lead the discipleship ministry teams. In this role, she will oversee the leadership teams related to children, youth, men and women and will lead the ministry team leaders in all four of these ministry areas. She will also help with pastoral counseling and care, specifically with
women. Erin also serves as a volunteer on the worship team. She is married to Patrick and they have three children: Ford, Benton, and Cora. email Erin
Whitney Reidinger: Administrative & Organizational Ministry Support
When Haven Field was formed, I felt God calling me to use my gifts to serve our church in an administrative and organizational capacity. I work behind the scenes to support the pastoral staff, communicate Haven Field happenings with our church body and maintain the church's financial records. My husband, Josh, and I have two daughters, Ellen and Camille, and we continue to be blessed as a part of the Haven Field community. email Whitney
