I have been preaching for 28 years; having served churches in Des Moines, IA, Grapevine, TX, Indianapolis, IN and this is my second time here in Naples. prior to full-time ministry i worked for 10 years in Oklahoma City in Commercial Real Estate and served as a deacon and part of a religious theatre group. I have been married to my wife Carrie for almost 35 years and we have 2 children; a son Christian and a daughter Baylee who live in Tulsa, Ok with their families. I have a keen interest in Foreign Missions. I have had the opportunity to make several trips to Ukraine as well as Russia, Nicaragua, and Ghana. My favorite part about ministry is watching people have those "aha" moments when a truth of Gods word becomes clear.

Terry Billingsby

My parents raised me in the church and it has always been a place that is comforting and fulfilling to me throughout my life. I strive to be an example of Christian living that is found in Jesus's teachings. Together with my wife of over 40 years, we seek to serve the needs of the congregation. 

Proverbs 22:1



Barry Brown

During a Bible study with friends, Barry learned that the only way to become a Christian was to be baptized by immersion.  He became an active member following the scriptural idea that without works, faith is dead.  It was while he was going through the death of a child that Barry saw our congregational “faith and works” to encourage him and his family.  Revelation 22:18-19 and Proverbs 3:3-5



Hugh Travis

Over fifty years ago a beautiful Christian lady grabbed hold of my heart and soul.  Diana Rollins led me to Christ and we have enjoyed forty five years of marriage. My prayer is for God to continue to allow me to labor in His kingdom for His glory and honor. 

Matthew 22:37-39



Scott  Otey

Not having been raised in the Church probably provides me with a unique perspective on Church Leadership. No pre-conceived ideas or tainted hopes. I absolutely adore my church family., second only to my immediate earthy family. After 40 plus years in the working world I recently retired from full time work. I now understand better than ever before that NONE of us are identified by our profession-by "what we do". We are identified by our relationship to Christ and with each other!


Evangelism Minister

Russ Bone

My wife and I have been married for 51 years and as we grow closer to each other our desire is to grow closer to Jesus as we try to serve the Church for which He gave His life.  The goal in any ministry we serve is to help our fellow Christians fall in love with God’s Word and realize it MUST be our constant “roadmap.“

Psalms 119:105–Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet along life’s

Cameron and Ashley Rimmer

We have been members of the church our entire life. I find joy in fixing things and helping people. I try to always see the good things and admire God's awesome works.
"Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness." Psalm 37:3



Kathleen Brown

I was baptized in 1990 and have been an active member since. I enjoy spending time with my family (kids, grandkids) and i love to spoil my dogs. When I am not in my office, I can be found in the Audio/Visual booth, grabbing coffee, or volunteering in the daycare.  My role as an administrator allows me to  be active in many of our ministries. Colossians 3 is a reminder to me that our attitude towards others is a choice and that we should view others as Christ views them.


Media Team

Alyssa and Nicole

Ministry Leader-Women's Ministry

Carla Sledge

I was first “introduced” to the Church of Christ when I met my husband, Willie.    I came to know Christ  two times. The first time, He knew me, but I didn’t really know Him.  The second time was when my life became synchronized in Him because of a trial I was going through. It was then I began to realize that If the Lord takes you to it, He will get you through it. This experience prepared me to be a testimony for other woman to let them know that if I can do it, they too can do it, or if I can get through it, they too can get through.  “ We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.

I Corinthians 5:20


Director of Livingston Academy 

Marcella Wakeland

I’m the daughter of faithful parents who took our family overseas into the mission field. I first started teaching children’s Bibles classes in Launceston, Tasmania, Australia when I was about 14 years old.  Besides Australia, I’ve taught Bible lessons to children in Jamaica, Ghana in West Africa and in every church of which I’ve been a member. In college I earned a degree in education and taught in the public school systems in Arkansas and Florida.  Currently, I am blessed to teach Bible lessons to the precious children who are part of Livingston Academy. 

“Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.”

‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭4‬:‭23‬ ‭NIV
