INTERIM YOUTH MINISTER
For those of you that do not know me, my name is Garrett Rolland. I am a Deacon at NCC and have been a Sponsor for High School students for the past 7 years.
I grew up in Hays and moved here 10 years ago from Colorado. My wife Andrea and I live in Norton with our kids, Brooks (5) and Hannah Lee (2). We have roots in the area, my Dad Gary was born and raised in Norton. He and my Mom Samette moved here as well after his retirement from FHSU. My Grandparents Cleo and Ivy Rolland were members of the Norton Christian Church for many years, in fact my Grandpa Cleo was the brick contractor that helped build this building and my grandma Ivy was very active in the church up into her 90’s. Andrea is from Almena originally; her parents are Bill and Susan Lowry.
We love this area and the students that we get to work with!
