Michael Acock

Lead Pastor

Elder, Executive Team

My wife, Jill, and I have been a part of CF since 1997, and I’ve had the opportunity to be on staff since 2001. During that time, I have served as the children’s ministry director, IT director, administrative pastor/business manager, and most recently the executive and missions pastor.

In November of 2021, I began serving in the role of lead pastor. I now teach on a regular basis and enjoy discerning with our elders and executive team the direction God is giving to us as a church.

I also love meeting with young couples for pre-marital counseling and helping married couples understand their relationships emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually. Jill and I have also enjoyed serving as small group leaders for most of the last 20 years. We have three grown children – Jordan, Emily, and Simmone.

Michael’s Likes

I enjoy running, biking, and reading almost anything. Jill and I love hiking on trails and spending time together laughing and doing life with our kids. Another personal favorite is binge watching NCIS (or any other series) on Netflix. We love having people in our home and doing life together with our friends and their children. It could also be said that I kind of like coffee.

Michael’s Motivations

I am passionate about people and God’s working in restorative and redemptive ways in each of our lives through Jesus Christ. As we dive into real community with one another, we discover God is there and is powerfully for us, and has loved us, is loving us, and will continue to love us. I want to help each person begin to live out of the truth of their belovedness in God and image God in the earth as only they can by God’s design. I want each person to know that they are seated in the Father’s love, centered on Jesus, and empowered by the Holy Spirit.
