Colt Stubblefield, our Youth Director since 2005, leads weekly gatherings, mission trips, ski trips, and retreats. Of the many aspects that make up Colt’s life, his love for the Lord, his love for his beautiful wife Jess and their children Liam, Emma Kate, and Ruby, and his love for creation are the most significant. They are also the parents to two very active German Shepherds, Leonidas and Solomon. Colt loves to surf, longboard, ski, kayak, and rocks anything that involves a Frisbee. (Basically anything outdoors that poses a challenge to his existence makes him come alive.) Colt’s door is always open; come discuss the amazing things God is doing in the lives of our youth here at HACC, or sign up to join in any of their many adventures!

They were overjoyed to welcome their family’s newest musician, daughter Autumn, in June 2017.
Cathy Venable joined the Harvard Avenue music ministry team just as our worship style and gathering changed at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Not just a local Tulsa favorite, but a nationally-known pianist, vocalist, conductor, and flutist, Cathy came home to Tulsa as Broadway touring companies went on hiatus in the spring of 2020 … and we’re so fortunate she chose to stay!

Dillon Ford graduated Oklahoma State University in May 2020, with a major in multi-media communication.

Dillon leads our Sunday morning tech team in creating seamless and quality worship experiences for our congregation worshipping via livestream. His work also allows us to expand our education, communication, and media options during the week and across all ministries.
