we are









those who are

walking in darkness

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.
She married Clint on October 23, 1999 and they have two grown children, Caleb and Mikayla.
Marty Jolena has led the children’s ministry since 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.
Joe was born in Michigan, raised in Louisiana, and now calls Indiana home. He is a bi-vocational Youth Pastor and Welder/Department Coordinator.
After spending much of his teen years running from God and searching for a place to belong, his desire is to see students run to God and have a life changing encounter with Jesus Christ in a place they know they belong.
Joe married Jen in 2007. They have lived in Indiana, Missouri, Louisiana, and finally returned home to Indiana. They attended Central Bible college and Joe is currently pursuing a degree in Business Management. They have 4 children and live just outside of Crawfordsville where they spend their days home schooling and starting a small farm.
They love board games, good food, books, sports (Go Cubs, Go!), one liners, and dad jokes.
Their biggest desire is to see God move among the young people of Montgomery County, starting first and foremost in their own home.


Our Church Board, consisting of five members, helps to oversee the functioning of the church. Board members include:
  • Marty Jolena, secretary 
  • Evelyn Kouns, treasurer
  • Charles Cooley
  • Clint Knoy
  • Ed Hall
They each have a desire to see God’s will accomplished in our church family and to see us move forward into all that God has for us. They earnestly seek to work alongside the leadership that God establishes and wholly surrender to the leadership of Jesus Christ.
