“I want to inspire people to love God and each other, to think in new ways so they are drawn to God and surprised by how good God is, and to become connected to God’s image and creativity and goodness in themselves. I am passionate about building a church that is an agent for change in the lives of members and the community.”

David holds a Master of Divinity degree from Mercer University and a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. He is also a Certified Professional Coach.

Caye Carscallen

Office Administrator

Caye has been married to Cutty since 1983 and they have two adult children. She enjoys the outdoors, hiking, camping, incredible views, good coffee, good conversation, and quiet moments listening to the birds on her deck.

“Wherever Jesus journeyed, he brought the good news of healing, kindness, love, admonishment, incredible mercy, grace and compassion – and he drew people to God. If I could be a fraction of who Jesus was, I would be good news to those around me. It’s my life’s decision to continue on my journey with Jesus!”
