UNIVERSITY STAFF TEAM

Everyone on our staff team loves connecting with college students and are more than happy to meet-up or any questions you have about h2o. Many of our staff members are also support-based missionaries with Reliant Mission and would be very grateful if you would prayerfully consider supporting their ministry work with h2oU.


Dustin Yankasky

Pastor, Full-time Staff

937.768.0118

Dustin@h2opittsburgh.org

Dustin majored in Japanese and quickly learned that his brain only had the capacity to master one language... so now he attempts to speak English but says words that don't exist (yet!)  He "married up" to his lovely wife Shauntae, and he hopes his children will forgive him for the lack of musical ability they will inherit from him. At h2o, he loves hanging out with people, so if you’re interested, stop piddlefartin’(see!) around and hit him up sometime.

Troy Wallace

Troy@h2opittsburgh.org

Troy became a Christian as a college student and loves helping others learn about and follow Jesus. He loves music, disc golf, and serving the church in whatever ways are needed. Troy has an amazing, godly wife, Megan, who brings him joy every day.

Zakk Roberts

Pastor, Full-time Staff

412.735.6989

Zakk@h2opittsburgh.org

Zakk learned most of what he knows in life from his friend Matt Moore, the back of cereal boxes, and the Bible. It should be no surprise that with such great wisdom bestowed upon him, he graduated with honors from Michigan State in 2010. He loves Jesus and having intellectually challenging conversations about people's beliefs, but he's also down to grab a beer and talk about sports, tech, or politics. In October 2013, he got married to his awesome wife, Leah.


Michelle Bedker

Full-time Staff

Michelle.Bedker@reliant.org

Michelle is a Northern Virginia native, but went to the University of Missouri to study journalism and Spanish. It was in college that God sparked her desire to go on staff with h2o after graduating in 2014. She’s a big fan of Jimmie Johnson, soccer and country music.

Brad Hicks

Full-time Staff

Brad.Hicks@reliant.org

Brad's heart for campus ministry emerged while he was a student at Michigan State University. Upon graduating with a degree in advertising in 2015, he raised support and eventually moved to Pittsburgh to be a part of h2o in 2016. He really enjoys talking about the Bible, leading worship, and playing Super Smash Bros.

Erik Santamaria

Full-time Staff

Erik.Santamaria@reliant.org

Erik's been in campus ministry ever since Jesus first caught his heart at The Ohio State University in 2003. Since then through all of the ups and downs, his goal as a student, operations planner, banker, husband, father, and friend has been to reach the world for Jesus. The road has in no way been easy to predict—but God has been faithful and he wouldn't have it any other way. Reach out to hangout with him and his beautiful wife Dennette and daughter Aria anytime. To know him is to know his family and trust us, they really up his game.


Kaleigh Neumann

Part-time Staff

Kaleigh.Neumann@reliant.org

After spending most of her time in college trying to learn as much as possible by doing as little homework as possible, Kaleigh graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in 2018 with a degree in emergency medicine. It was in college that she knew God was calling her to a life of serving Him, and she is now working as a bi-vocational missionary. She loves being a paramedic, new ministry ventures and soft serve ice cream.
