The mission of North Industry Christian Church is to Love God, Love People. We strive to do this through all that we do.
Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.
Our church family is led by a group of elders who seek God’s guidance and wisdom for the family here at North Industry Christian Church.
Steve Kimbrel, Senior Minister (Elder)
As the primary teaching pastor, Steve has a passion for carefully unpacking the truths of Scripture. He has served at NICC for twenty-five years. He and his wife, Marilyn, have two grown sons, with lovely wives and five grandchildren.
Ed Barnes, Family Minister (Elder)
Hi! I’m Ed. People call me a few things around here. I’ve been titled the Youth Minister, Children’s Minister, Family Minister or just Mr. Ed. “Mr. Ed” is just fine with me. I work mainly with kids and families. I’ve been a part of the North Industry Christian Church family my whole life. In fact, something you may not have known, 5 generations of my family have considered this church their home.
I married Peach (Deborah) 21 years ago and we now have 3 great kids. Peach teaches Kindergarten in East Canton and absolutely loves all of her school family there. I guess you’ve noticed that working with kids is something we both love to do. She’s been teaching for over 23 years and I’ve been in ministry over 25 years.
Jeff Franks, Community Minister (Elder)
Jeff has been serving at NICC, his home church, for over twenty years and in ministry for over 23 years. He has led the sports and outreach ministries and encouraged a partnership with other church families in our community and county through these efforts. Jeff is a graduate of Malone University and also serves at the Director of Bridge Point Community Services. Jeff is a former board secretary for the international sports ministry, Church Sports & Recreation Ministers (CSRM). Jeff and his wife, Rae Ann, have four children.
