INTRODUCING OUR NEW SENIOR PASTOR: John J. Haller
John was affirmed as Highland Hills’ eighth pastor on July 11 in a unanimous congregation vote during a special called business meeting held immediately after the worship service in which John gave his trial sermon. We are excited to welcome John and his family as they come to serve with us here at Highland Hills beginning on August 1, 2021.
John was born and raised here in Fort Thomas, KY, and graduated from Highlands High School. He completed his Bachelor of Arts in Pastoral Ministry in 2016 from Clear Creek Baptist Bible College in Pineville, KY, with academic honors. John then went on to pursue his Master of Arts in Christian Studies at the University of the Cumberlands in Williamsburg, KY, and completed that program in 2018.
John is married to Angela who was born in Covington, KY, and grew up in Campbell County and graduated from Campbell County High School. They have two grown sons, Jacob (23) and Joshua (22).
Among some of John’s interests are music, reading, and soccer. He is employed by the US Postal Service as a Letter Carrier and has served in that capacity since 1992 in addition to being a bi-vocational pastor in two different churches since 2014. He has served in his current church for the past five years as Senior Pastor. Prior to being a pastor of a church John did supply preaching and pulpit fill in various churches in Northern Kentucky from April, 2013 through September, 2014.
John was licensed into the Gospel Ministry on April 24, 2013, at First Baptist Church, Cold Spring, KY, and was ordained as a Pastor on August 24, 2014, at East Dayton Baptist Church, Dayton, KY.
