Church Staff

Senior Pastor: Brent Hulett

Born In:  Fulton, MO

In your international travels what might surprise people:  Out of the 38 countries I have travelled to all but one was because of the Church.  Besides getting to know godly believers around the world I have had the privilege of monkey hunting in the jungles of Bolivia, sitting with the King of Cambodia, preaching to thousands on an airstrip in Tanzania surrounded by goats, celebrated a new Bible translation with past cannibals in New Guinea, playing the congas in Cuba and worshipping at the Garden Tomb in Israel.

Have you ever had a reoccurring dream?  Yes.  All through Junior High School I dreamed that I had forgotten where my locker was, or that I had forgotten the combination.  Perhaps that is why my current dream is that I am walking into a large church service and I realize that no one told me that I was to preach and I have not prepared!

Why are you involved in this ministry:  The Word of God changes lives and I can't imagine spending my life focused on anything of lesser value.  I love opening the Bible to people and watching it convict, develop, enlighten and change people into active disciples of Christ.

Spouse & Family Member Names:  Darla, Jordan (20) and Andrew (17)

Brief Background: Darla and I both grew up in Missouri and have been best friends since age 13. Darla attended Mid-America Nazarene University and I attended the Nazarene Theological Seminary where I completed the MDiv in Missiology and DMin in Pastoral Theology.   We pastored a church in Grandview, MO (yes this is true!) before we moved to the Philippines to coordinate thirteen colleges and seminaries in Asia for the Church of the Nazarene.  For the next ten years I worked in leading two missions organizations while living in Kansas City and Orlando.  We moved to Grandview Church of the Nazarene to become the Senior Pastor in the summer of 2011.  Along the way the Lord blessed us with two great sons, Jordan (19) and Andrew (16) and we have been married 25 years.


Youth Pastor: Sean Carpenter

Born in: Seattle, Washington

If you had a CB radio, what would your handle be: "Screaming Weasel;" can't remember how it came about, but have had it since high school.

Have you ever had a reccurring dream: When I was in Junior High I had a dream based on Scooby Doo and I was hanging with Shaggy and Scooby and we where always running away from this giant gorilla on the second story wrap around porch of this old plantation house.

Why are you involved in this ministry: I feel called to teach and mentor our teenagers through this time in their life when they are making very important decision and choices about how the rest of their life will play out.  My goal is to make sure that they have a solid theological foundation based on correct biblical teachings to be able to build and develop their relationship with Jesus Christ on.

Spouse & Family: My wife's name is Moira Carpenter, my daughter's name is Aubrey and I have two sons, Keegan and Kyle.

Brief Background: I was a pastor's kid so I grew up in the church living primarily all over the Western half of Washington.  I went to school at both Southern Nazarene University in Oklahoma City and to Northwest Nazarene in Nampa Idaho where I studied Theology with an emphasis on applying it to Youth Ministry.  After school Moira and I got married in 2006 and were living in Olympia Washington.  We moved to Sacramento California in 2007 where Moira finished school and I did my seminary work at Fuller Theological Seminary, while working as a Youth Director at Lutheran Church of the Ascension.
