Pastors & Staff

Pastor Trevor Whetzel

Lead Pastor

I am the Lead Pastor at HFA Church and have served in ministry since the spring of 2005. I have been working full-time at HFA Church since January 2015, serving as both youth pastor and associate pastor. In 2021, I received an ordination credential from the Assemblies of God and am currently pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Ministerial Leadership through Ascent College. I have served as a character coach through the fellowship of Christian Athletes with Turner Ashby High School; coached girls’ basketball at Cornerstone Christian School and love playing drums. My real passion is leadership, where I focus on the empowerment and development of others through training and mentorship. Over my fifteen-plus-year career as a youth pastor, I directed students and leaders toward personal growth. I have seen many former students pursue solid leadership positions in their careers or bio-vocation.  My goal as a pastor is to direct individuals into a deep relationship with Jesus. I want to empower our leaders to use the talents and gifting’s that God has given to them.

Crystal Harper

Music/Media Director

I have served HFA since 2006.  I began in No Limitz Youth working with the  worship team.  Over the years I transitioned to part-time worship leader and recently became fulltime Music/Media Director.  I met my husband, Steven,  at HFA in 2011 and married later that year.    We have 3 children, Skylar, River, and Barrett.  I’m often seen chasing them after a Sunday morning service.   I am a sucker for a good chick flick, Mexican food, and nerds (the candy….just to clarify).  I love the Lord and am passionate about worship. Worship is more than a song for me, it is a lifestyle.  I am thankful for the opportunity to serve the Lord and this church community.

Mikayla Mongold

Student Ministries Director

I was born and raised in Rockingham County, VA.  My husband Dillon and I are high school sweethearts and have been married since 2018.  We live in Harrisonburg with our two children, Zander and Kesslyn, and our Australian Shepherd, Tober.  Before joining the staff at HFA, I served in church leadership in a variety of ways, all while being a high school teacher for six years.  My passion is to reach students of all ages as they walk in their faith and grow in God's word.  Outside of student ministries my interests include all things organization and all things ice cream, as well as crossword puzzles, artsy activities, and spending time with my family.
