 About Us:

  • Caleb and Julia Bales have been attending HCC since 2007 and 2008 respectively. They even met right here in the worship center, back in the fall of 2008. They have been married since 2011 and have two Wheaten Terriers – Ross & Gibson.

  • Both Caleb and Julia went to Baylor University – Caleb studied Art Education and Julia studied Political Science. Originally from Tulsa, Oklahoma, Julia came to Waco to study at Baylor and has pretty much stayed ever since (other than a brief stint at Kansas State University). She currently works at Baylor University in Undergraduate Admissions.

  • Caleb is originally from the Temple area and teaches AP Art at Midway High School. Both of them have a passion for students; teaching them, living life with them, and showing them God’s love in addition to telling them about Jesus.

  • In their spare time, the couple enjoys history, watching home renovation shows on television, traveling in the South (Charleston and New Orleans are their favorite destinations), baking and cooking, watching movies and spending time with family.

“We are committed to giving our best to the HCC Youth; supporting
them, teaching them and loving them, while at the same time
challenging them to learn about the Lord in new ways, and put His Word
into action. We know the Middle School and High School years have the
potential to be difficult at times, and we do not take lightly the
responsibility to walk beside our students to help them navigate this
portion of their life while being a light for Jesus.”
