Chase Jacobs, Pastoral Assistant
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. Our daughter, Beatrice, will be one in December 2018 and we are expecting our second child in late January 2019. 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.
