Greg grew up in Willard, Ohio and graduated from Nyack College just outside New York City. He came to faith in Jesus at a young age thanks to growing up in a Christian home, and through a mentoring relationship with his youth pastor.

 He met Sharry while at Nyack when she came to visit her twin sister. They didn’t date until a few years later when she took the position of youth director at a church just an hour south from where Greg was serving as youth pastor. They married and moved to Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio when Greg accepted the position of youth pastor at Chapel Hill Church.

During their time in “The Falls”, they became parents for the first time with their daughter Emily. After five years they moved to Toledo when Greg was called to the role of the Pastor of Student Ministries at Westgate Chapel. Shortly after the move, Emily was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor and passed away just before her fourth birthday. However, she was able to see the birth of her brother Matthew. Greg and Sharry had two more sons: Nathan and Andrew.

 After twelve years at Westgate, Greg moved across town to oversee the development of student ministries at CedarCreek Church’s West Toledo campus, where he served for 4 1/2 years. He accepted the challenge to plant Church 3TwentyOne with some of his close friends in late summer of 2013.

 Greg is known for his ability to lead and inspire those who serve with him, and for his transparency, humor and passion when teaching. He’s musically inclined and can often be found hanging out at Starbucks. He’s a gear head and an avid fan of professional sportscar racing, IndyCar and Formula 1. He has served as Chaplain of the Toledo Mud Hens and gets way too involved in following his teams: The Mets, Jets, North Carolina basketball and Notre Dame football.

Sharry grew up in Lima, OH. She heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ for the first time at a Good News Club in her elementary school when she was 9 years old. She gave her heart to Jesus that day. God used that as a turning point in the lives of her parents as they recommitted their lives to Christ.As a sophomore in High School she attended a National Youth Conference where she sensed God's call on her life for fulltime ministry. She graduated from Crown College with a degree in Christian Education/Youth Ministry and became the second full-time female Youth Pastor in the denomination in which she was serving. It was during that time she reconnected Greg and they were married November 24, 1990.

Sharry has loved serving alongside Greg in student ministries as well as teaching women's Bible studies and leading small groups. However, her greatest role is that of being a mom. Her only daughter Emily was 3 1/2 years old when she died from a cancerous brain tumor in 1997. It is a heartache that has transformed and shaped their deeper relationship with Jesus. She also has three sons: Matthew, Nathan and Andrew.

Sharry is an engaging teacher/speaker and leader who is committed to helping people live in the freedom of Jesus. She enjoys a good Chai Tea latte, cooking/baking, cheering for her sons playing soccer and band concerts.

Tayna grew up in Ottawa Lake, Michigan. She first became a follower of Jesus in high school when a dear friend started to invite her to Crossroads Community Church. 

Tayna received her Bachelors and Masters degree in Education from the University of Toledo.  Recently, she received her Education Administration degree from the University of Findlay.  

Tayna met her husband in 2010, which brought them both to Church3TwentyOne in 2014 when they were looking for a home church. In 2015 they were married by Greg Haueter.  

Since being the assistant director of 321kids since 2015, she became the Children's Director in February of 2018. Tayna is grateful for the opportunity to be used by God and to be able to see young children learn about who God is and how much He loves them.

RonR@Church3TwentyOne.com

 

Ron grew up in Reno Beach, Ohio and, early in his life, learned about Jesus and the Gospel from his grandfather, an ordained minister and accomplished bluegrass musician.  Many of Ron’s earliest memories are of musicians frequently visiting his grandparents’ home for “jam sessions.” During this time, Ron developed a passion for music and for the guitar in particular. Fortunately, his grandfather was gracious enough to allow him to bang on his guitars until Ron’s hands were big enough to fret chords.

Ron went on to study music in college and has played in several bands, but – in recent years – he has returned to what his grandfather had taught him long ago: there is nothing more satisfying for a musician than to focus his or her passion for music on worship of our Lord. 
In 2011 Ron married Jean, his wonderful wife who he is certain that The Lord handpicked just for him. They have two children, Isaac and Anna. Ron’s role as a husband and father has been one of the greatest blessings in his life. To say it has increased his faith would be an understatement.

Their family began attending Church 3TwentyOne shortly after it launched. Often, you can find them in 321Kids or having a snack between services in the Café.   

Ron’s interests aren’t limited to music: he is an avid baseball fan and comic book collector. In his spare time, if he isn’t practicing guitar, he is either watching a ball game or sitting next to a pile of comics, reading several into the wee hours of the night. 

Josh grew up in Bedford, Michigan with parents who taught him who Jesus was from the time he was born. He began following Jesus at an early age and grew up attending youth group, going to anything and everything that the church was hosting. He felt a calling to go into ministry and from that point forward began pursuing leadership within church ministry. Josh is currently pursuing a degree in ministry.

Josh began attending Church 3TwentyOne from the moment the church started. He began organizing and leading student ministries shortly after the church officially launched and was hired on staff in the beginning of 2017. He currently lives in Sylvania with his wife Abigail who you will often see serving alongside Josh and making sure he doesn't get himself in too much trouble.

When not at church you will often find Josh hanging out with his friends and family, performing open heart surgery, enjoying the outdoors, and teaching sign language to chimpanzees.

Josh is grateful for the opportunity to serve the middle and high school students of our church and would love to meet you. Please don't hesitate to introduce yourself on a Sunday morning. Josh loves people and hearing their stories.
