  • Marty Jolena
    Children's Minister

    Marty Jolena became our children's minister in 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.
