Troy is one of our Speaking Elders and is full-time staff with Christ Fellowship. Originally from Florida, Troy placed his faith in Jesus Christ for salvation when he was a teenager. He felt a call to vocational ministry when he was in his early thirties. He then moved from Florida to Dallas TX, where he attended seminary at Dallas Theological Seminary and received his ThM degree. He was ordained in 2014 at Grace Bible church in Dallas and began his career serving as the head of Elementary School Ministry. He then transitioned to the business manager for the church which he held until he and his wife moved to TN in 2019. He is an avid college football fan and enjoys outdoor activities, especially anything on the water.
Kathleen is the Women’s Ministry Coordinator. Originally from Minnesota, Kathleen has made Nashville her home since 1992 where she and her husband, Kip, have raised four children. They’ve made Christ Fellowship their home church for the majority of their years in Nashville. Even though Kathleen grew up going to church, it wasn’t until the fifth grade when she clearly understood that Jesus died for her sins personally and that it required faith on her part to have a relationship with Him. It was during that time that she began her lifelong love of studying the Bible and walking daily with Him. Kathleen loves people, stories, conversation, music, flowers, sunsets over water, and being with family and friends.
Justin and his wife have been attending Christ Fellowship since for nearly 20 years. Together, they have served together across several of the ministries over the years and they have been serving through music ministries in various capacities since they first came to Christ Fellowship. Justin has served as our Music Ministry leader since early 2019. With both of his parents being musicians and music teachers and also having musicians for generations across both sides of his family, music has always been an integral part of Justin’s life for as long as he can remember.
