Carl is married to Drea, and together with their six children, they have been serving as Village Missionaries since 2012. They arrived at Machias at the end of 2016, and both the church and community quickly became "home" for them. Carl earned a BA from the University of North Florida, an MA in Biblical Counseling from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, and is completing a Doctor of Ministry in Biblical Counseling from Birmingham Theological Seminary. He drinks obscene amounts of unsweetened green tea, keeps a steady pile of books on his desk to read, and enjoys repetitively lifting heavy things and putting them down again.
Tim is married to Carol and together they have been on a wonderful adventure here at Machias since 1991. They have four children and eight grandchildren. Tim was trained through what is now Contenders Discipleship Initiative, and currently provides leadership for CDI here at Machias. He is completely astounded and overwhelmed with joy that God would somehow have led him to this role at MCC. In his free time, he enjoys fishing, reading, and writing.
Caila is married to Jacob and has three children, Payton, Greyson, and Remington. Caila is the office administrator at Machias Community Church. Caila loves to help where she can! Caila and Jacob love to garden, hike, and lead their Gospel Community!
Samantha is married to Dave, and together they are raising their four children in Granite Falls, WA. Dave is an Elder at MCC and Samantha is currently serving as the Family Ministries Coordinator. Sam oversees the volunteers and curriculum for nursery and children’s church programming on Sunday. She also organizes family events like the Country Church Carnival and Easter Walk. She strives to involve parents and empower them to act as the primary spiritual influencers in their children’s lives. Sam loves hosting get-togethers at her home and has passed this love on to her children, who come up with any excuse to have people over. “National Cupcake Day?... Let’s have people over for cupcakes!” or “There is going to be a new moon?... Let’s have a campout!” The Meziches truly believe that “Good things happen when the family gets together.”
