I’m Burke Perry, current chair of the elder board. My wife, Deena, and I have three married sons scattered across the U.S. I work as a writer at VistaComm, a marketing company here in Sioux Falls. My interests include food, photography, reading, camping, and chasing grandchildren, tornadoes, and trains. As chair, I don’t provide oversight to any one department, but preside over meetings of the church and the Leadership Council. My ministry passions are discipleship and service. God continues to work on my rough spots and has used my time at Hillcrest and on the Leadership Council to show me what servant leadership looks like in action.
