Byron Cothran
Shannon Cothran

Children's Minister

We are passionate about children's ministry at Northvale. I have been privileged to help lead our children's programs for seven years now! Children's ministry, for me, is what I do at Northvale, but also what I do at my everyday job in the school. We currently use Lifeway curriculum, but we feel the greatest resources we have are the amazing volunteers who disciple our kids every week.  Please reach out to me if you have any questions! 

Joshua R. Brown

Howdy, welcome to our website! My name is Josh and I’m our Student Pastor here at Northvale. My wife Brittany and I have served in youth ministry since 2016, we have one awesome son, a precious mini Aussie, and we are both huge nerds. I mean like, HUGE nerds. We would love to connect with you and answer any questions you might have about our student ministry! 

Nick Brown

Well hello there, I’m glad you're here! My name is Nick and I have been serving in worship ministry ever since I can remember. I’ve always had a love of music, as well as Star Wars, video games, and the Houston Astros. If you have any questions about our worship team, send us an email and let’s get connected! 

Kevin Kaeser

Worship Pastor

Hello! My name is Kevin and I have the privilege of being the co-worship leader here at Northvale. I am a full-time teacher at Harrison High School where I teach economics and debate. My wife Melissa and I  have been married for 19 years and have one child, our beautiful daughter Cordelia. I love music, sci-fi, family, and I’m an all around geeky guy. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!

Debbie Andrews

Administrative Assistant

Lifelong resident of Harrison. I have 3 children and 7 grandchildren. I love to shoot handguns.  I have loved counted cross stitch for many years. I began learning to quilt last fall and it is now my happy place. Izzy (my golden doodle) and I watch a lot of Hallmark movies. Being here at Northvale has been a blessing and God's perfect timing in my life.
