  • Neil hewitt

    I have been a partner at NCC since the old Hardwick Christian days, and have served on the elder board previously at NCC. When asked to come back on as elder, I was honored as NCC still has Kingdom work to be done in Milledgeville and throughout the world. If God can use me, then He can use anyone. I have been fortunate to be married to my lovely wife, Argent, for 37 years with two boys, Alex and Nick, and a beautiful granddaughter Lillie. I enjoy spending time with my family, golfing, and hunting.

  • Jeff Youmans

    I am a sinner, that struggles with the temptations of this world but despite who I am , God’s Grace, forgiveness and compassion has blessed me with a loving wife for 28 years. He has allowed me the joy of being a father of two wonderful children and has shown His glory in my life on a daily basis!

    I am blessed to also be a partner here at NCC and serve for over 20 years with the youth and children’s ministry. The blessings that God has afforded a sinner ,such as I, continues to give me a desire to lead and see others discover the value of a relationship with the creator of eternity! I am blessed to be a blessing and God’s promise is as new today as it ever has been and I pray as a body of believers that we will always reach out to share that truth with giving and caring hearts. The struggles of this world are a constant but God IS real and His promise is consistent and everlasting!
