The youth ministry of GCF Hays is designed to propel our youth into action, and to give them a bigger vision for their lives. We look to not only stir up passion for Christ, but show them they are meant, called, and equipped to do the mission that God has called them to. We believe that every youth that enters our doors will leave knowing they are a strong Christian and see God move throughout all areas of influence.
We offer times of fun-filled games and fellowship, worship, and biblical teachings. Outside of our weekly meetings we offer community projects, special intensives and seminars designed to equip youth with current issues they face today, and also mission trips (both domestic and international).
Rob & Madison Hess
YOUTH PASTOR & YOUTH LEADER
Rob currently serves as the Youth Pastor at GCF Hays. He loves to engage and encourage youth through teachings and great conversations.
A proud veteran, Robert served in the United States Navy as an Information Systems Technician. He studied at the University of Texas El Paso and received his B.S. and B.A. from the University of Phoenix.
Madison serves alongside her husband, as a Youth Leader. She loves to influence and encourage youth through fun games and engaging conversations.
A proud Longhorn, Madison received her B.S. in Biology at UT Austin and her Master’s Degree in Physician Assistant Studies at UTMB. Madison works as a Physician Assistant in Pediatric Orthopedics, caring for injured children from all areas of Central Texas.
Outside of church, you’ll find Rob and Madison taking care of their son Ryder, walking all the trails, and watching Liverpool FC.
Hope is a college freshman, but on a regular day, you can find her making lattes at the local Starbucks in Buda. During her off time, you’ll find her adventuring around Austin hot spots (e.g., hiking and eating ramen) and spending quality time at home with her pup, Theo.
Adam & Delmy Ramon
As a youth leader, Adam counts it a true honor to inspire and uplift youth students with Christ-centered hope.
After serving overseas in the United States Marine Corps, he studied Behavioral & Social Sciences at Palomar College in San Marcos, CA. Currently, Adam is a Project Manager for a Roofing Company and a part-time licensed Commissioned Security Officer.
Proud to serve alongside her husband, Delmy’s delight is in seeing mentees become mentors, advocating for biblical teaching. Previously in finances, and more recently as an HOA Property Manager, Delmy is an entrepreneur who manages her own photography business.
With multiple years served in youth ministry, Adam and Delmy are joyous to be GCF Hays Youth Leaders, describing it as, “..an answered prayer to a God-shaped hole in their hearts.”
Being new parents to their firstborn, Andy Ramon, free time is now spent watching and taking photos of their son as he grows; making memories with friends and family; and taking their pug and border collie out to parks is how they love to spend their days.
