Minister Rusty Benton
Rusty is a graduate of Columbia Seminary and has been blessed to be part of the staff of HVPC since
2019. He enjoys music, athletics, a good story and just about anything to do with being on, in or around
the water! Having served in a variety of settings in ministry including the parish, homeless/hunger
ministries, prison ministry, mission opportunities, inner city outreach, and getting to share God’s great
news through music, Rusty has been blessed to experience the wonders of God’s love and goodness in
so many ways. Added to all of this, he values spending time with family and sharing in the everyday life
of the church and community!
In addition to his many roles here at Harbor View, Dr. Gary Hill also teaches music classes at the College of Charleston, as well as playing piano at the Thoroughbred Club at Charleston Place in downtown Charleston, SC and much more! Gary has written and arranged a number of great pieces for worship here at Harbor View.
Director of Educational Ministries
Some say Janice has been here longer than the church has. She denies this, but there is no doubt that our Early Care and Education Program (ECEP) would not be the same without her. Janice is always working to make the ECEP one of the best educational programs in the area. Not only has she been a steady rock for this ministry, she has also been a willing learner, always seeking to find what is best for her teachers and for the students of the ECEP.
Natalie enjoys using her communication/business administration background and Christian faith at work. She loves to cook/bake, garden, exercise, read, travel and spend time with her family (preferably at the beach). Natalie regularly volunteers in her home church and at her daughter’s elementary school.
