Leadership & Staff
Pastor Roxie McNelly
Our senior pastor, Rev. Roxie McNelly, came to us in October of 2016 from central Missouri where she was Senior Pastor of First Christian Church of Centralia for four years. A graduate of Christian Theological Seminary in Indianapolis, with a Masters of Divinity, Pastor Roxie is new to the community of Martinsville, but is not new to Indiana. Having grown up just west of Indianapolis she and her husband, Jim, raised their two sons in Avon, IN. Pastor Roxie has a passion for worship and spreading the good news of Jesus Christ. Her intention is to live in the joy of knowing Jesus and to encourage others in developing their relationship with Christ. Pastor Roxie and her husband are happy to be “back home again in Indiana” and closer to their family, including their two granddaughters.

Organist and Handbell Choir Director
Joohee Lee has been playing for our congregation since 2005.

She has also done some doctoral work in the area of organ and church music at I.U. Bloomington. Joohee is accomplished at the keyboards, but she brings more than talent to our worship. Her deep faith and her desire to both serve and praise God through her gifts in music are both seen and felt in our worship services. Joohee also leads our FCC Bell Choir and Youth Bells. Joohee lives in Bloomington with her three children.
