Meet our elders & ministers.
Alan & Debra Hardison
Alan’s Favorite Scripture – John 10:10
Deb’s Favorite Scripture – Romans 8
Alan & Deb were part of the team that planted the congregation in Belle Fourche in 1985, which would eventually become Northern Hills Church of Christ. With several children & grandchildren, they enjoy their family time with the occasional hike for Alan and baking (caramel rolls) for Deb. They enjoy traveling as well, & Deb only has 5 more states before hitting them all. In between working for the city of Belle Fourche, Alan often has a craving for peanut butter, but makes sure it doesn’t interfere with giving Deb a rose on the 29th of every month as he has for over 30 years when she’s home from taking care of residents at Edgewood Vista in Spearfish. Alan & Deb have an obvious love for Jesus & His people, and are great blessings to those at Northern Hills!
Dave & Kim Nelson
Dave’s Favorite Scripture – Colossians 3:16
Kim’s Favorite Scripture – Ephesians 4:32
Dave & Kim are high school sweethearts who have now been married for over 30 years. With big hearts & nearly as big smiles, Dave works hard to keep Northern Hills’ grounds looking good as well as helping shepherd those who attend. With three kids & two granddaughters, family keeps them busy, especially with a son serving his country in Alaska, one teaching English in Japan and a daughter in Arkansas. But they are serious about Jesus’ church, as its where like-minded believers who also persevere in their walks on earth are. They take being added to the Lord’s Body as a privilege & strive to help others realize the gift of life Jesus has given us. In between crocheting & bird watching Kim can be found as a secretary at the Belle Fourche middle school, and Dave’s probably catching up on the Minnesota Vikings. Both bless many at Northern Hills!
Jim & Kathy Sigle
Jim’s Favorite Scripture – Colossians 3:4
Kathy’s Favorite Scripture – Isaiah 40:8
Jim & Kathy are both quiet but obviously Godly souls that seek little fanfare or recognition for their service, which of course makes them true servants. Jim is a self-employed contractor and Kathy a well known artist of the Black Hills, but around the congregation we may think of Jim’s wonderful song leading or Kathy’s Mid-Week Manna meals. With three kids in various states they like to go visit them to relax, and are looking forward to becoming the grandparents of twins early next year. They both are constantly amazed that Jesus cares SO deeply for them and everyone and strive to show that caring to all people they meet. Jim & Kathy love the church like family, & are constantly encouraged by the advice, fellowship, & encouragement they receive at Northern Hills, and are refreshed by the shared Christian values. Spend anytime around them and you’ll find they truly enjoy spending time together and love to laugh, and inspire much of the same around Northern Hills!
