Pastors & Staff

Nathan Oakes

Lead Pastor 

In 1993, Pastor Nathan had a vision of creating a church to reach people who were far away from God. As a result, he planted and founded Victory Hill Church. It doesn't take long to see how God has blessed the vision. Victory Hill has grown from a handful of people to hundreds gathering for worship every weekend. Pastor Nathan is a gifted communicator and super passionate about leading people to become fully devoted followers of Christ. And if you hang out with Pastor Nathan very long, you'll definitely hear a cajun Boodro joke. 

Chad Hunt

Executive Pastor

Chad is passionate about building systems and strategies to reach unchurched people. In addition to developing the team, his main focus is to assist the lead pastor and his vision to reach people who are far from God.  For fun, Chad and his wife take all day road trips (and sometimes off-road trips) in their Jeep Wrangler.

Mallory Harper

Administrative Pastor

Mallory oversees the administrative side of Victory Hill, including managing budgets and expenditures. In addition to minding the numbers, she partners with her husband in the Unashamed Student Ministry.  She is also a mad baker of good cookies! 

Mason Harris

Weekend Experience Pastor 

Mason is passionate about preaching, teaching and discipleship.  In addition to his pastoral role, he oversees the media  and video department each weekend. Mason is gifted at leveraging technology to make a gospel impact. Not many people know that Mason once appeared on ESPN...accidentally, but he still appeared.

Brian Michael O'Callaghan

Worship Pastor 

Brian-Michael leads our Sunday worship experience using his gifts and talents, as well as developing teams of vocalists and musicians. He strives to create a high-energy, yet worshipful environment to help people experience and love of Jesus Christ. If you can't find him on the stage, check the golf course. 

Max Lyle

Project Manager 

Max provides maintenance to all of the buildings on campus. He also leads renovation and building projects. In addition to his skilled labor, Max also loves serving people through visitation and being a friend in a time of need. You'll find Max every Sunday in the Connect Cafe, ready to serve you a cup of coffee. There are some things Max dislikes, for example, don't even say the word, "snake" when you're around him.

Trey Harper 

Student Pastor 

Trey is strategic about creating a positive and relevant influence in the lives of students. He is intentional about providing relevant teaching that kids can apply to their everyday life. Trey loves to deer hunt in the winter and take his family to the beach in the summer. 

Beth Page

Children Pastor

Beth is gifted in sharing the love of Jesus with children. She and her husband, Michael work hard to create a safe, fun environment of learning and laughter.  It is their desire that every child who walks through  the door of Victory Kids to know love and acceptance. Micheal and Beth are professional campers, because they lived in one while building their house.

Amy Payne

Next Steps Pastor

Amy oversees our Discipleship Path. She helps people take their next steps to become fully devoted followers of Jesus. She and her husband, Larry also oversee the First Impressions Team. They are super passionate about making people feel welcome. Larry and Amy enjoy spending time on the lake fishing with friends and family.
