He and his wife, Wiff, have two boys, Dudley and Wyatt. Wendell has been involved in construction in Nashville for 25 years, remodeling some of Nashville's premier houses. He was honored when asked to be on the CRC as it was a chance to use some of his experience to serve WPC and remodel one of Nashville's premier churches. In addition to serving on the CRC, he is the Chair of the Landscape Sub Committee and looks forward to putting the finishing touches on a beautiful renovation.

Hugh Harvey and his wife, Lane, moved to Nashville in 2002 after a company transfer from Wisconsin. They chose Westminster because they loved K.C.'s preaching and his message. He has served communion, been an usher and worked on several Habitat homes. Currently, he serves as Co-Chair of Habitat and works with Westminster Home Connection. Last year, he became an Elder and serves on the Property Committee. Hugh's service to the Church has expanded to acting as the Session's representative on the CRC. He is Chair of the IT/AV/Security Sub Committee. "We all recognize that there is a lot of work to do to get this renovation done on time and within the budget, but we are all dedicated to this project. We are also grateful for the support of everyone at WPC in accomplishing this mission. Hugh says.

Jeff Haynes and his wife, Lucy, joined Westminster in the fall of 1994 right before their twins were born. They have raised four children in this church, Campbell, Benjamin, Furman and Carrie. He has been blessed to serve on the Session, to chair Stewardship, and to teach two year olds in Sunday school as well as eighth graders. Jeff also served on the APNC that called Guy to our church. As a long time real estate developer,  He understands the process of working with architects, contractors, city code officials and neighborhood groups. Because of this experience, he serves as chair of the CRC. "As often happens in life, I was overwhelmed at work and tried to say no. Jeff states, "Donovan , Lucy and God all persuaded me to say yes. As Lucy explained, ˜you do this every day to support our family, it is now your turn to do this to support our church.'

Pam Wylly has been a member of Westminster for about 36 years and has served as an Elder and on numerous committees.

"My involvement with the new campus plan started at the very beginning in the "dream stage as we interviewed the entire congregation and all of the church committees, staff and programs. Pam says, "I have continued to stay involved as we renovated the Sanctuary and developed plans, hired architects and builders. My current role on the CRC is chair of the Interiors Sub-Committee.
