Other Staff

Pastoral Assistant - Jason Deming

I trusted in Christ through the witness of my high school girlfriend, Sara, who is now my wife. After graduating high school, I served over twenty years in the Army and during that time I sensed a call to Christian ministry. Upon military retirement in 2018, my family moved to Louisville in order for me to study at Southern Seminary. I began serving on staff at Clifton in 2019. God has blessed Sara and me three children: Isaiah, Eli, and Gabby.

Minister of Music - Jim Dernell

Jim D 

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.

Minister of Youth - Coye Still

Coye Still

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. Currently, I am a PhD student in New Testament. I met my wife, Emily, in Louisville, and she loves serving in the Youth Ministry with me. We were married in 2018. I began serving on staff at Clifton in 2016. 

Assistant Minister of Youth - Alex Schroeder


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 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 love serving the students at Clifton Baptist Church! We have been married since 2016 and have one daughter, named Annie.

Children's Ministries Director - Amy Sarin


I am so thankful to have been raised in a Christian home and involved in the youth ministries at church.  I repented of my sin and received Christ as my savior in Middle School.  I graduated from Indiana University with a degree in Elementary Education and taught K-3 for seven years in Northern Virginia.  I have lived in Louisville and been joyfully married to Vivek for 23 years.  Vivek and I have four children; our daughter and triplets.  It is a gift to serve at Clifton in the Children’s Ministry.

Nursery Coordinator - Heather Bertram


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.

Office Administrator - Jodi Coker

My parents taught my siblings and me to love the Lord. When I was six years old, I prayed to ask Jesus Christ to save me from my sins after my mother read me a gospel proclaiming bedtime story. Since that young age, the Lord has continued to draw me closer to himself by growing my faith, sanctifying me of sin, and giving me a love for His Word and His bride. I graduated with a degree in Cross-Cultural Studies from Palm Beach Atlantic University in South Florida. I moved to Louisville shortly after I married my husband, Zackary, so that he could study Global Studies at Boyce College. Clifton quickly became family to us, and it is a joy to be able to serve the church as its Office Administrator.
