Tim Farris

I had the privilege of being the Lead Pastor of OCC for over 20 years. I've watched hundreds of people come to know Jesus in that time, and I can honestly say I've never been more excited about what God is doing here. Now I am in charge of the Care and Senior's Ministry.

Children's Pastor

Butch Hunter

Butch has been married to Chrissy for 27 years. Together, they’ve served in Children’s ministry for 22 years, raised four children who  definitely march to the beat of their own drums, and they are now experiencing the joy of being Popz and Abi to an ever-expanding tribe of grand babies.

Butch is the creative force in this dynamic duo.  He lives to teach adults and kids about Jesus in fun, innovative and engaging ways. He enjoys video editing, writing, fishing, and hunting. He is known far and wide for his practical jokes, some of which are actually funny. 

Chrissy proofreads his rough drafts, cleans up his grammar and keeps everyone safe while attempting to chronicle the family history in her scrapbooks. She is also a Certified Natural Health Coach, who is continuing her education in Traditional Naturopathy. Sometimes she comes up with the ideas for Butch’s practical jokes, but she always lets him take the credit.

They both love kids with all their hearts and strive make every child feel special. God is doing something amazing at O’Fallon Christian Church, and they’re excited to be a part of wherever it is that God is leading the people of OCC.

Youth Pastor

Brandon Hammond

Hey! My name is Brandon Hammond and I am the student pastor here at OCC. I have been the student pastor since 2013 and love this church family. This was a family who invested in me through college from 2006-2010 and it became my home church. 


Family means so much to me, I love worshiping and serving with them at OCC. My wife Britta and my two daughters Beckett and Rosie are amazing. They fill my life with joy and purpose. One of my favorite things is to watch students love on them as well. You can also find us quite often at one of our favorite places; Chickfila. 


I love having a front row seat to watch middle school and high school students make an impact for Jesus. We have a great team of leaders that I love to share ministry and life with. My passion is for students to be empowered to be the church for a life time. If you see me around come say "hey!" Would love to show you what crazy socks I am wearing that day.
