Daniel Cargill

Lead Pastor of Preaching & Vision (Interim Student Pastor)

It is my very great blessing to follow the Lord’s call to serve Crystal Hill and to lead as we reach out to the Little Rock area and cross the globe with the gospel of Jesus Christ. I am blessed to be married to and enjoy my wife Kristin and our beautiful family. In my educational pursuits I have earned a B.S. in Education from The University of Texas at Austin, and a Master of Divinity in Christian Leadership from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY. I have been shepherding God’s people since being called to the Lord’s service over 24 years ago. My passion is to lead the church to Know God, Enjoy God, and make Him Known.

Ezra 7:10 "For Ezra had set his heart to study the Law of the Lord, and to do it and to teach his statutes and rules in Israel."

Mat Crouse

Pastor of Worship & Media (Interim Student Pastor)

Serving our Faith Family on The Hill is such a joy! It flows from my passion to stir the people of God to engage the heart of God in a life of worship that overflows into a life of sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ. The Lord has blessed me immeasurably with a godly and loving wife, Caitlin, and two amazing children. It has been my honor to serve the Lord and His bride for the last 15 years; leading His people to see worship not as a song, but as a life completely surrendered to Christ.

Psalm 33: 1-3, “Shout for joy in the Lord, O you righteous! Praise befits the upright. Give thanks to the Lord with the lyre; make melody to him with the harp of ten strings! Sing to Him a new song; play skillfully on the strings, with loud shouts.”

Carlos Carter

Pastor of Senior Adults 

Oh, how time flies. In 1969, I married well above my pay-grade! My beautiful wife Barbara and I began to serve Crystal Hill side by side that same year. It has been an absolute joy for us to serve the church in many ways for all these years. During our time on The Hill, the Lord has greatly blessed us; starting with 2 terrific boys who followed in their dad’s footsteps, both marrying wonderful ladies, and as if that weren’t enough, we have of 5 amazing grandchildren. In my current role I am so excited to serve the church as Senior Adults Pastor. We are eagerly looking forward to watching what the Lord will do as we continue to grow in Christ and fellowshipping with the saints.

John 10:27-28, “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand.”
