Lucas Almeida, Minister of Music
I was blessed to have grown up in a Christian home, where the gospel was ever present. I do not know the exact age I became saved, but I do remember certain events from my childhood that can give me good parameters. At around the age of five, I remember my parents teaching me about the reality of hell. I was in shock, and certain that I deserved such a place. Although I was a child, I was already fully aware of my depravity and the desperate need I had of a redeemer. My parents however, also taught me about the truth of the gospel and the hope of eternal life I could find in Jesus Christ. At around the age of 6, I made a profession of faith. After that my parents (especially my father) began working with me to further understand what it meant to be a Christian and to live in light of the gospel.
Coye Still, Pastoral Assistant of Youth Ministries
I was converted at an early age through the witness of my parents and the local church. After graduating high school, I attended the University of North Carolina at Charlotte where I competed in track and field. While in college, I began to sense a call to preaching and teaching ministry, and I came to study at Southern Seminary in 2014. I began serving on staff at Clifton in 2016.

Heather Bertram, Nursery Coordinator
I was blessed to grow up in a Christian home and became a believer at the age of 8. My husband, Mike, and I have been members at Clifton since 2003. We are blessed with four children: Micah, Abby, Haley, and Owen. It is such a joy to be at a church like Clifton and it is an amazing privilege to serve the body as the Nursery Coordinator.
