JJ Lusk

Lead Pastor

JJ was born and raised (for the most part) in the Dallas area. Not really growing up in church, JJ was a teenager before he heard the gospel, and Jesus changed his life. He began to teach and preach the Bible when he was 15, and has been doing so ever since. JJ and his wife, Lindsay, met in Oklahoma City. They were married in 2002 and now have five crazy kids. A graduate of Heartland Baptist Bible College, JJ served with Lindsay both as a youth pastor and as an associate pastor in two different ministries in Texas before they moved to Rockville, Maryland to start Forest Hills where they have been since the fall of 2014. In 2019, JJ published his first book, Witnessing Like Paul, which you can learn more about HERE. JJ loves food, traveling, riding his bike, and reading all in that order, and New York City is still his favorite place to visit.

Lindsay Lusk

Kidzone + Women’s Ministries

Originally from South Dakota, Lindsay served alongside her husband in two different ministries in Texas before moving to Rockville in 2014 to help start Forest Hills.  Her favorite part about church planting is seeing the Word of God transform the lives of those around her.  In addition to serving her church family, she also spends a bulk of her time managing the family calendar (with five kids, there always seems to be something going on).  She enjoys family movie nights, lazy Saturday afternoons (when they actually happen!) and coffee out with sweet friends.

 

Nathanael Caudill

Youth Pastor + Deacon

Nathanael is a proud Hoosier, born and raised in northern Indiana. After high school, he joined the United States Army. His time in the military took him to Georgia, Arizona (where he & his wife Jessica were married in 2009), Afghanistan, and Texas. Nathanael began to feel God’s leading into the ministry after leaving the military and began training at a Bible Institute in Texas. In March of 2018, God led Nathanael, Jessica, and their two children to Rockville, Maryland to serve at Forest Hills. In addition to serving as youth pastor and deacon at Forest Hills, Nathanael also works as a telecommunications systems engineer. Working with teenagers, learning from them, and watching them grow in their faith is one of his favorite things about serving at Forest Hills. Nathanael enjoys Chicago Bears football,  movies, good coffee, playing video games, spicy foods, and spending time with his family.

Jessica Caudill

Music + Youth

Jessica is a former small-town girl from Willcox, Arizona and, prior to moving to Maryland, spent most of her life in the beautiful American Southwest. She studied education at Golden State Baptist College and now puts that degree to good use homeschooling her children. 

Jessica is married to Nathanael and they have 2 children, with one more due in March of 2020. At Forest Hills, Jessica plays the piano for services, works with the youth along with Nathanael, runs our social media, and helps out with photography at church functions.

Jessica loves history and loves living in the DC area and getting to visit so many historical places. She also loves coffee, Mexican food (especially anything with green chilies!), crafting, the Chicago Bears, and thrift shopping. 

 

Jeff Kirchoff

Music + Deacon

Having grown up in Xenia, Ohio and recently moving here in 2018, Jeffrey now has the wonderful privilege to lead the music ministry here at Forrest Hills. His goal is to focus on the content of the songs and on the genuine praise and worship that music can give to God. Outside of church, Jeffrey’s biggest goal in life is to provide for his family and to live in such a way that lays down a foundation for future generations to follow. There are few thing that motivate him more than the thought of taking care of and investing in the people that are closest to him. Jeffrey likes to spend his free time with close friends and often relaxes through recreational cycling or simply getting outdoors and unplugging from the city. There are few places He would rather spend his time than at a campsite on a lake.

Linda Yang

Linda grew up in Tempe, Arizona and moved to the Washington Metropolitan Area in 2002. Linda lives in Rockville with her husband, Milton, and three young children.
