I have been on staff as Connection’s Minister since January 2019. I attended New Mexico State University where I graduated with my bachelors in Marketing. My wife Meagan and I are dedicated to bringing others into an encounter with God and helping them recognize their true identity and potential in Christ. Together we have a son named Jonah.
Jackson & Cecelia Reynolds - Worship Minister
I have been the worship minister at UCC since June 2018. My wife Cece and I moved here to Las Cruces from Flagstaff, AZ where I was involved in worship ministry for about 10 years. I have a degree in Mechanical Engineering from Northern Arizona University but my true passion is living a life of worship and leading others in musical worship. My wife, Cecelia (Cece) and I have a son named Grady and a daughter Adalyn.
Brandi & Will Coppedge - Children's Minister
I have been at UCC since middle school when my parents decided that having the support of a bigger youth group was worth the drive from Deming 2-3 times a week! It is here that I met my future husband, Will, and found a bigger family with the members at UCC. My family and I have literally been transformed by the love and support of the UCC body. By faith, as newlyweds, we left the area for a couple of years where I got my Masters in School Counseling from Regent University. After my return to Las Cruces I felt a tug on my heart to stay home so I did not pursue School Counseling, but I still wanted to serve children. Will and I have 3 awesome children who bring light to our. We love partnering together, teaching the kids of UCC. My desire is for our young to have a strong foundational understanding of God’s word and love.
David & Beth Harrelson - Youth Minister
I have served as our youth minister since 1987, and even after 30 years I absolutely love what I do. I love helping guide the spiritual growth of teenagers with the goal of each of them being missionaries in their schools and homes. I completed a bachelor's degree from Lubbock Christian University, and a masters in ministry from Abilene Christian University.
Joel Johnson - IT Consultant
I have been attending UCC my whole life. I was an active member in the Youth and College group. I joined UCC as a part-time staff in 2013. I help administer the church's computer equipment and website. Outside of this job I am the System's Analyst for the New Mexico Department of Agriculture and an IT consultant for Johnson Financial Services. I have always enjoyed working with computers and loves to help people with their technology.
