OUR STAFF
CHRIS & NANCY CAIN
PASTORS
 
 
 
Pastor Chris and Nancy Cain came to Crawfordsville with a wealth of both secular and spiritual experience; as they frequently say, “This is not our first rodeo.” After serving as both pastors and evangelists for more than thirty-five years, their service has also included working in both the print and funeral home industries, respectively. After a lifetime characterized by anointing, blessing and favor, they now have been called to pastor firstassembly.
MARTY JOLENA
CHILDREN’S MINISTER
Marty Jolena became our children’s minister in July 2016. She, along with her team, has a passion to see kids from all walks of life hear the Good News and experience the love and goodness of Jesus. They have an especially strong desire to see the kids affected by poverty come to know Jesus and experience Him practically in their lives. To accomplish this, they work diligently to provide transportation weekly, and necessities, such as back-to-school supplies, clothes and coats, randomly throughout the year. She believes that what children need most in today’s world is to know that someone cares about them and loves them, and that building relationships with each child is more effective than programs or stuff. Each child that comes to Cville Kids is loved and accepted while hearing about Jesus’ love for them and how He can help them live full lives.
CANDY KNOY
MUSIC MINISTER
Having been drawn to music at an early age, Candy Knoy has been in music ministry since 1994 when she joined her youth group’s worship team. Later, in 2002, she joined her church’s worship team; and, in 2004, became the worship team leader. She joined the firstassembly music ministry team in 2011, and later that year, accepted the position Music Minister. She believes that music is a powerful tool that can be used to uplift, encourage, strengthen and help create an atmosphere where those seeking can be taken into the beautiful Presence of Almighty, where He can meet every need and longing.
