Director of Youth - Nick Williams


Director of Children - Jessica Strickland

Jessica currently resides in Rocky Mount with her husband and two children. She felt the call to children’s ministry back in 2015. It started with a want to help, a want to join the church and be a part of God’s family. A few years have gone by and she still wants the same things; a place where children can go to learn about God and how to love Him. Children are her passion and loving them the way God loves us is important in a child’s life.

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
Proverbs 22:6
