Managing Director – Helen Hall


Helen worked in the corporate world of telecommunications, but more recently had been looking for something different in the way of a management job. In God’s great timing and coordination, she was offered the job at Capitol Hill, and is loving the people of the church and their servant hearts.  Embarking on this next adventure is a new and welcome challenge. Helen loves music and singing, cooking, quilting and hanging out with friends and family.

 Cheri Wilke – Adult Discipleship Director

cheriThe worship and preaching at CHP is spot on, but the more I thought and prayed about it the more I realized it was a second hour of teaching and discipleship that was needed.  Having just received my Master’s degree and teaching certificate, I felt called to develop something to fill that void.
My favorite thing about CHPC is the desire to open up to the Holy Spirit.  I am seeing the sparkle of spirit infused momentum in the leaders and know that this will set a fire in the congregation.
MY favorite type of food is dim sum/soup dumplings at Din Tai Fung. My favorite book from childhood is Through the Looking Glass, my favorite book as an adult is The Unconsoled, but I have many favorite books being a diehard bibliophile. For fun I love to travel  to England and touch base with friends there while soaking in all the literary atmosphere and art museums I can (not to mention visiting cathedrals and churches). I am an unapologetic Anglophile, except when I am an unapologetic Francophile.

Custodian – Anthony Hamilton


I feel God has picked CHPC for me. This church is showing me how to live and to love again. I have hope again.
I don’t have one favorite thing. I have lots of them. The location, the history. I guess if I had to pick one it would be that this church loves me.
I was born a natural born athlete. I love to play sports. Soccer is my favorite. I don’t like watching all of them. Occasionally, I like to watch the play-offs, world cup, super bowl. I really enjoy teaching kids to play too.
