Don & Katrina Hines: VT Valor Staff

Don & Katrina grew up in Michigan and met at college in Wisconsin. After finishing seminary they helped plant a church in Williamsburg, VA where they also worked with Cru Military.  It was here they gained an increased burden for reaching the next generation of service men and women. Don & Katrina are passionate about helping cadets come to know Christ and be equipped for a lifetime of service for Him. They have been married since 2003 and have 3 amazing daughters and one fun dude. When not chasing around their kids, they are avid sports fan, outdoor enthusiasts, and can often be found eating chips and salsa at the near Mexican restaurant.

Paul & Rissa Metzler: VT Valor Staff

Originally from Minnesota and Tennessee, Paul and Rissa were given a heart for ministry from both their experiences in college and as an Army Reserves family. Through Cru Valor, the Metzlers hope to share how their faith has been instrumental in their experiences with military life, educational challenges, and personal loss. They want to share their lives with students in the Corps of Cadets and ROTC, as well as veterans attending college. When not ministering, they— along with their children Alex, Olivia, Addie, and Penny—can be found going on walks, watching movies, and (on occasion) coming up with crazy analogies playing Apples to Apples.
