Meet the Staff

Clayton Mixon, Senior Pastor

, retired on September 30, 2017. We are in the process of finding another pastor using God’s directions. We are very fortunate to have a very qualified Associate Pastor, Donald Thomas. He, along with some visiting pastors, will fill the pulpit as we continue this journey. Please join us to experience God at work in this place.
