our servants

Listed below are our ministers, elders, and secretary that serve our congregation.

  • Wayne DeWindt, Pulpit Minister

    Hello. I am Wayne DeWindt.  God has richly blessed me with the tremendous opportunity to "Come Home" and serve as the pulpit minister for the Eastwood Church of Christ.

    Nearly a decade ago, I was privileged to work and worship with the Eastwood Church of Christ and live in the community of Hutchinson, Kansas. Now, as of January 1, 2018, my family and I have returned home to serve in Hutchinson.

    Perhaps, you are looking to "Come Home" by obeying the Good News of Jesus Christ and participate in a church family that is "looking up" to God in worship, "looking out" in spreading the Gospel, and "looking in" to grow as disciples of Jesus.

    It won't take long for you to discover that our diversified church family, though imperfect, is rich in relationships that matter the most - loving God and loving others. If you have been thinking, praying, searching and looking for a place to belong, we say – Come Home!

    Matt, and his wife Hillary, daughter Ella, and baby boy Augustine.  They moved to Hutchinson in January, 2017 to become our new Youth and Family minister.  Matt & Hillary have been very involved in Silver Maple Camp for the past 9 years.  He brings a desire and the ability to connect with our teens while helping grow the group and outreach to others.  Matt isn't afraid to cover difficult topics and spend time building relationships with each youth member.
