Joe E. Faulkinbury
I am originally from Advance IN. I am married to Tammy and have two adult children, Patrick and Rebecca as well as a wonderful granddaughter Nora.
I attended Ball State University, worked in several bicycle shops over the years as well as working as a machinist, landscaper and lunch and recess aide. Over the years I have done youth group work as well as working several camp jobs. I received a BS in psychology from St. Mary of the Woods College in 2015 and have been working towards Commissioning as Pastor of Camping since then.
I love to ride my bicycle. Photography is the second hobby.
I first came to CMMBC in 2005 to help with Sr. Camp. I came every year after to to do work projects including the 2nd story addition to the dining hall. I became the Manager/ Ex. Director in 2010.
CMMBC means a great deal to me. It is a privilege to be a part of a ministry that has been bringing the Gospel to the folks of this part of Appalachia for over 70 years. I have the joy of watching God change lives each and every summer and throughout the year.
I grew up in the Wallens Creek area of Jonesville. I currently live here with my husband, Richie, and children, Gunnar (15) and Gage (5). We attend Wallens Creek Covenant Church.
I have a B.S. and M.Ed in Education from Lincoln Memorial University. I have worked as an Elementary Teacher for 20 years in Grades 1-3, and attended and worked at CMMBC for 35 years.
I enjoy community theatre, devotional readings, swimming, and going to the park with my little boy
I started attending CMMBC as a camper when I was 9 years old after my friend Stephanie invited me to come to VBS at Wallens Creek Covenant Church. At that time, the missionaries - Miss Winnie and Miss Naomi would pick children up in their community in their VW Van. During the transportation trips, the missionaries talked to me about attending CMMBC. I decided to go that year and it's been such an important part of my life ever since. Worked at CMMBC in various roles through the past 35 years (camper, counselor, mission speaker, cabin inspector, worship leader, camp director, camp caretaker). I was even engaged and married here Now I get to see the love of camp through my childrens' eyes.... and it overjoys my heart.
CMMBC is my favorite place on Earth! I've seen God at work in so many ways. It's difficult for me to summarize the kind of impact the ministry of CMMBC has had on my life in just a couple short paragraphs, but in a nutshell, it would be fair to say that I wouldn't be the person I am if not for the things God did in my life through the camp. God used CMMBC to reach me and completely change my life. I've seen campers give their hearts to the Lord, rededicate their lives, and make decisions to enter into full-time ministry. I've seen rocky sibling relationships restored. I've seen God move in every day activities...... when it seemed things weren't going to go as planned but He made a way. GOD is GOOD!
I grew up in southeastern Indiana on the small family farm where my dad and grandmother were raised. I married Joe a few months after graduating from college. We have two children. Patrick and his wife Kim live in Charlottesville, VA. Rebecca and our granddaughter, Nora, live in Berea, KY.
I have a chemistry degree from Ball State University (Muncie, IN) and worked as a pharmaceutical chemist for 23 years prior to moving to CMMBC. I have worked at Jonesville Middle School, tutoring students in Math 6-8, Algebra I and Geometry. I also keep busy at camp with planning and preparing meals; writing newsletters, grants, and press releases; bookkeeping; and project management.
I crochet, knit, read, and join Joe for cycling adventures on my recumbent tricycle.
I first visited CMMBC, along with my family, as a mission team member from ECC Lafayette (IN) during our spring break in 2006. I was the team's cook. We continued to join spring break mission teams, as well as visiting for our fall breaks, and bringing our children for Junior Camp in 2009. Joe and I were thinking about CMMBC as a potential retirement plan. Then, in the fall of 2009, another round of downsizing came with a severance package, and we decided to move to CMMBC sooner, rather than later, starting full time before camp began in June of 2010.
CMMBC has given me a chance to see how God provided me with the life skills to serve at this place and time. Who could have imagined that God placed me in situations so that I could learn things that I needed to serve at camp? I grew up in a large family with lots of cooking experience. Many of my roles as a chemist included a lot of technical writing, process improvements, and project management. I taught women's Bible studies; lead junior church for elementary-aged students; and was a substitute Sunday school teacher. All skills that I use today! God is at work at CMMBC by providing finances and workers; by moving the hearts of young people to hear his voice; and by being very real and present at this place that has been set apart for his purposes.
Pastor David Coryell
I am from Lansing Michigan and moved to Stickleyville in 2004.
I have been a pastor for 50 years.
I enjoy sports.
I first heard about CMMBC in the late 90's and were brought down from Michigan.
My favorite part is seeing God working in children's lives over the years.
I am originally from Pennsylvania. I have been involved in camping and youth ministry since 2013 in New York and Virginia. I have enjoyed working in many areas of ministry as well as missions work. I currently attend Berea College where I am finishing my B.S. in Business Management.
I enjoy any outdoor activities, especially those involving Frisbees, hiking, or tag.
I fell in love with the ministry of CMMBC in the summer of 2016. I had applied upon the recommendation of my camp director during my internship at our sister camp Mission Meadows. It was an incredible summer where God placed a burden on my heart to get involved and use my gifts.
I have seen God work through worship. As people come together from different backgrounds and worship together throughout the week, God moves through them and breaks down barriers to build authentic fellowship.
I was born 1938 in Jonesville, VA in the Horse Hollow Community. I moved to Lafayette Indiana in 1966, moved to Statesville, North Carolina in 1971, and later retired in 2000 from Cantun Corp.
I went to Jonesville High School in 1956.
I enjoy farm work.
I got involved with CMMBC as a camper in 1950.
My favorite part of CMMBC has been watching God work in past and years seeing young people experience the plan of salvation. Many have come to know Christ!
