Carrie Jacobs
Worship pastor & Technical director

Carrie joined the movement in 2012.

She's been serving at Movement Church since 2000.

     Bachelors degree in Music with an emphasis in Vocal Performance

-She's fed up with people thinking that "worship music" is subpar and boring. Getting fired up and getting loud is not just something we do at sporting events. Being a Christ-follower is exciting and should get that "holy adrenaline" pumping through your veins.

Cindy Martin
Children's Pastor

Cindy joined the movement in 2002.

She's been serving at Movement Church since 2000.

With over 50 years of children's ministry experience, she's served in everything from bus   ministry in the inner city of Cleveland Ohio to being a worship pastor...You name it, she's probably done it.

-Cindy's greatest joy is seeing children come to know and love Christ. She says, "seeing children understand the Bible on their level and talk about coming back to church all week long ROCKS!” Taking the easy route to teaching the Bible is NOT acceptable in her mind; teaching the Bible in a way that is forever imprinted on their heart and minds.
