Meet the New Team

We’ve recently added two new staff to our ministry team. We know they’ll be a tremendous blessing to you.

If you haven’t met them in person yet, here’s a bit about them and their contact info so you can say “Hello!” or ask “How can I help?”

Ally Grimes, Children’s Minister
Ally leads our ministries for parents and children (infants – elementary). She plans events through the year and ensures that Sunday morning is a can’t-miss-it experience for children and a head-start for parents. She loves it when kids make a connection between the Bible and life, when they learn who Jesus is, and when they trust him in their own lives.

Ally is married to Joey, an Airman in the United States Air Force and huge fan of football and ultimate frisbee. Both are originally from Miami, Florida, where Ally was introduced to children’s ministry. She is currently completing a degree in psychology at Louisiana State University Shreveport.

She loves the beach, music, learning about other cultures, board games, and volleyball.

Jacob McCarty, Student Minister
Jacob leads our student ministry (6th – 12th grade). He plans and leads events through the year and ensures that our students feel welcome and included on Sundays. He is passionate about God’s people and eager to see Jesus at work in our students’ lives.

Jacob is married to Shelby. Shelby works for Volunteers of America. She is a huge fan of her Corgi, Weasley. Jacob and Shelby are both actively involved in non-profit work within our community.

He loves bears, the great outdoors, spaghetti, and pretty much any dog he comes into contact with.
