Jermaine was born here in Yuma to Pastor Tyrone & Lisa Jones in 1983. Jermaine came to know the Lord as his personal Savior at a very young age, but started to live an ungodly life as a teenager. In 2004, Pastor Tyrone brought a young pastor from India to aid in the development of the youth and young adult ministry at CTC. It was that young man of God the Lord used to lead Jermaine back to a right relationship with Christ. It was at that time jermaine re-commited his life to Christ, and God filled his heart with a passion for worship. In 2005, he was one of the first students to enroll at the International School of Worship (SOW) in India. It was there that Jermaine learned how to play guitar and began his long journey to learn how to sing. Shortly after graduating from SOW and returing returning to the US, Jermaine joined the CTC worship team.
In July 2008, Jermaine married his high school sweetheart and love of his life Joanna. In November 2008, he was asked to lead the worship team and has served in that capacity ever since. Jermaine & Joanna also serve on the CORE youth & young adult ministry leadership team. Jermaine's heart and vision is to raise up young worship leaders with a passion to worship God in spirit and truth and commit to serving His people according to the Lord's direction.

What do foster, children, Bible Bowl, and a SW minnesota dairy farm have in common? How about twins, piano lessons, "a little lunch" and family sing-a-longs? Each of those things impacted Ranell as a youth! Extremely blessed with a God-loving family, ranell accepted Christ as her Savior when she was almost 9 years old. She left home for Nebraska Christian College in 1989 with a solid foundation and a healthy desire for some independence! During college, she took her first mission trips, planting churches and tasting the joy of other cultures in Ecuador and Honduras. By the spring of 1995, Ranell had graduated with two degrees, a BS in Biblical studies and a BA in education. After college, she worked as an investigator for a major insurance company in Omaha, NE, while she spent the rest of her time doing what she loved even more- ministering to high school youth. During those years Ranell also continued her travels to Kenya, Africa and Romania. After spending 10 years in Omaha, the Lord called her to Yuma in 2003, where she taught school for 3 years.The Lord had in mind for her to do other things, so she returned to the insurance world, and began ministering at CTC several years ago. With a love for learning, a love for youth and a heart for teaching the Word of God, Ranell enjoys leading people of all ages in the study of His Truth.

Tracy's life is a testimony of the goodness, grace, mercy and forgiveness that is found in our loving Savior. Raised in a military family that was constantly on the move (a common life style of a military family), her parents decided to retire in Yuma while Tracy was a senior in high school. Tracy was not raised in Christian home, but recalls many times throughout her life when God had placed godly people in her path directing her to Him. In her early adult life she came to CTC with numerous questions about what it meant to truly follow Christ. She also wanted to know who this Jesus was, who had died for her and others like her. Could it be as simple as turning away from her sinful lifestyle and choosing a life of following after Christ? Well simple it was not, but in 2005 Tracy decided to follow after Christ whole heartedly. In 2007 Tracy came on staff at CTC as front office assistant working part-time, within a year and a half Tracy was promoted to Pastoral Assistant to our Lead Pastor and his wife.
Tracy is married to an amazing man of God, Michael. They are blessed with beautiful daughters that they are trying to raise with a foundation of Christ. Tracy's primary areas of ministry are Operation Homefront (CTC's military ministry) and CORE Youth Leadership Team.
"I am just a sinner saved by God's grace who wants to show others that God's grace is enough for them!" Tracy can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or at church office at 928-344-2409
