Bro. Calvin Moore
Men’s Ministry meets the third Saturday of each month. Members gather at a specified location and enjoy fellowship, a meal (typically breakfast), and then we dive into the word of God and allow the Holy Spirit to guide our open format. A member may have a specific question or issue and sometimes that is the platform that we use to launch our open discussions. Currently our membership ranges from 8 years old to 90 years old. Relying on the Holy Spirit’s guidance all members are enlightened during the fellowship.
Mrs. TerrieAnn McKoy - Ministry Leader
Women’s Ministry meets the third Saturday of each month. Women gather at a specified location (usually the church) and enjoy fellowship with one another over a meal, generally a light breakfast. Then a mini lesson and discussion takes place. The Holy Spirit is sought for guidance during this time as He leads the discussion the way He desires and participants in the women’s meeting get the awesome benefit of revelation from the Holy Spirit in their lives as well as share revelation that they have received. This ministry is designed to allow the ladies of the church to get to know one another better, which doesn’t take place during our regular Sunday morning worship.

Youth Ministry: Grades 9-12
Bro. Brian and Sis. Nancy Blank - Youth Leaders
Brian and Nancy Blank are leading a generation of youth at CEM that will not leave this world the same way that they entered it. They are determined to change this world, and the lives of the people in it. They are a generation who are not afraid to take a stand for Jesus. They spread his name, not only through words but also through acts of love and kindness. They are a generation on the move, carrying the Good News everywhere they go. They are the future. Even though at times their future does not always look bright, as children of God they are not moved by what they see, hear, or feel, but only what the Word of God says.
We love the Lord and we stand together and fight the good fight of faith.
