Coye Still, Minister of Youth
I was converted at an early age through the witness of my parents and the local church. After graduating high school, I attended the University of North Carolina at Charlotte where I competed in track and field. While in college, I began to sense a call to preaching and teaching ministry, and I came to study at Southern Seminary in 2014. I began serving on staff at Clifton in 2016.
Alex Schroeder, Assistant Minister of Youth
I was saved when I was 15 years old when I came to know my sin and Christ's perfect sacrifice on my behalf. It was during my time in college that I began to long to pursue full-time vocational ministry. I graduated from the University of Arkansas in 2013 with a degree in Cultural Anthropology and moved to Louisville in 2015 to pursue a degree at Southern Seminary. My wife, Claire, and I are expecting our first child in October of 2018. It is a joy to teach and serve the students at Clifton Baptist Church!
Jim Dernell, Minister of Music
While raised in a Christian home and in a Bible-believing church, I did not grasp the personal significance of the gospel nor the grace of God until my early 20s. I grew up hiking the mountains of Colorado and have served in music ministry for most of my life, two things I love. My heart burns as well for pastoral ministry and training leaders. I have a BA from Colorado State in History and Music and am pursuing post-MDiv. education at SBTS. My wife, Pam, and I are blessed with one son, Justice, whom we adore. We’ve been members of Clifton since 2015.
Ashley Burns, Administrative Assistant
I became a believer when I was 8 years old and had the privilege of growing up in a home where both my parents modeled the gospel and Christian discipleship. My husband, Heath, and I have been members at Clifton since 2016 and just had our first daughter, Beatrice, in December 2017. For the past several years I have had a growing love for the local church. I am incredibly blessed to be able to serve the body of Clifton as Administrative Assistant.
Heather Bertram, Nursery Coordinator
I was blessed to grow up in a Christian home and became a believer at the age of 8. My husband, Mike, and I have been members at Clifton since 2003. We are blessed with four children: Micah, Abby, Haley, and Owen. It is such a joy to be at a church like Clifton and it is an amazing privilege to serve the body as the Nursery Coordinator.
