Our  Staff

  • Norm Jones  -   Pastor


    Above all else, I'm a child of God and will embrace and wrestle with that all my life. Family is a beautiful mess and therefore I'm reminded that "here are my mother and my brothers."  I'm blessed with five brothers (1 younger and 4 older).  My wife is truly an angel who excels at raising three remarkable rascals and has enjoyed teaching Elementary ESL, Literacy, and 2nd grade. Nowadays, a 5 year-old dancing through the den or giving me the "evil eye" truly starts my day with a smile.


    Enjoys: basketball, the mountains, time with family, and chocolate chip cookies.

  • Zachary Cagle - Office  Admin


    I enjoy helping others change their mindset about finances. Learning what they can achieve if they follow what the bible says and what Dave Ramsey teaches.  

    Hobbies: Collecting (Sports cards, comic books, stamps, coins, Uncle Scrooge), metal detecting, gold prospecting, fishing, reading, writing.
