Part of the fun at CIY SuperStart is preteens get to cheer on and have fun with amazing stage actors.

This year’s dynamic duo will be Michaela (Williams) Boyd and Chandler Hoffert. Together, they will lead games, perform skits and interact with students as they take hold of Biblical truths and explore this year’s theme, “Game Changer.”

She just got married in May, and she and her husband, Henry, live in New Hampshire. They both work at the Manchester Christian Church where Michaela loves and leads kids in the student ministry.


“I fell in love with being a part of SuperStart last year,” Michaela said. “Being able to come back again is incredibly exciting. I can’t wait to reconnect with some of the same preteens I met last year. They are the BEST part!”

He is a sophomore at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music, and absolutely loves theater and music. When not in class or traveling with CIY, Chandler can be found in the Cincinnati area playing guitar for several bands.


“I’m stoked for the opportunity to use what God has given me to serve others,” he said. “I love playing music so much, but doing it for the Kingdom just makes it better. I’m excited to get back on the road and meet students across the country!”
