Clay Parrett - Lead Pastor
Clay is always willing to take you out for a cup of coffee for two good reasons--he loves people and he loves coffee! He's been serving at CCY since 1997, wearing a number of different hats because of his multi-giftedness. He is high-energy but not so much that you won't catch him occasionally sitting back with one of his guitars (he has a collection), singing a praise song, or even enjoying a Colts game on TV. He is a committed husband to his wonderful wife, Jennifer, and a dedicated father to his two boys, Luke and Zach. One of his preferred subjects is leadership so you might find him reading Andy Stanley or Steve Farrar. Though he is not beyond getting into a nerf gun war with the youth, Clay loves even more getting into the Word and sharing it with others in a dynamic, down-to-earth style.

Since 1996, Kathy has called the US home, living across various southern states before finding her heart in Mustang, Oklahoma. She's spent the last 15 years alongside Marcus, her soulmate and best friend. Always eager to learn, Kathy has a particular fondness for technology, often spotted with her trusty MacBook.

David is our "tech" guy. If it's broken he can fix it! He serves his CCY family as a leader of the Tech Ministry, and you will often find him at odd hours at the church repairing and/or improving our technology.
In his free time, he enjoys working on antique cars. So if you happen to see a 1908 Cadillac someday around town, it could well be David behind the wheel!

During his time at East Bartlesville James served as a Sunday School teacher, Youth church preacher, Sunday School superintendent, Sunday night worship song leader, Deacon, Elder, Board chairman, and Trustee.

In age, Kyle Meeks may be CCY's youngest shepherd but in Christian character, he is far beyond his years. Kyle is married to Amanda, a source of true joy in his life. Late in 2014, their firstborn, Mason, became the family's newest addition, and recently Ethan has joined the family. Some of Kyle's friends tease him about his predictability, calling him "robot," but just when you think you have him pegged, he jumps on his motorcycle and heads for an off-road enduro or throws on his mud cleats for a neighborhood football game. Kyle is intrigued by the world of Christian apologetics, one reason he's a C.S. Lewis enthusiast. But again, before you pigeonhole him as a total intellectual realize he also has Clive Cussler novels in his personal library (as well as a video of Liam Neeson's Taken!). Kyle has committed himself to make disciples of Christ "a few at a time," something he is always willing to sit down and discuss.
Robert (Bobby) Lister
Bobby, originally from Azusa, CA, found his way to Oklahoma just as he turned 18, following his family's move. It was his encouragement to his parents to find a church home that led them to CCY. Bobby's journey included a brief sojourn in Boston with his wife, but CCY remained his anchor. A steadfast church attendee from a young age, it was at CCY that Bobby's faith truly found its family. Now deeply integrated into the CCY family, Bobby shares an enduring bond with its members, akin to lifelong friendships. Married to Jordi Lister, they're blessed with two daughters, Elliot and Willow, and Bobby professionally works as the Branch Rental Manager at Kirby-Smith Machinery. Beyond his roles at work and as a father and husband, Bobby cherishes profound discussions on faith and life's purpose with friends, seeing CCY as more than a church—it's where his heart is, alongside his family and friends, a foundation for his life and legacy.
Here is a man who is a true student of God's word. Though not a pastor by trade, Ryan's interests have led him all the way to a Master's in Theology. He has a passion for clearly understanding and teaching Bible truth. His loyalties to God, family & country are obvious in his everyday lifestyle. But don't misunderstand, Ryan isn't too spiritual to have blast at a Thunder game, enjoy a "Lord of the Rings" movie or roll around the living room floor laughing with his kids. He somehow manages to even work in a couple of hobbies, running, and woodworking. Ryan is sold out to the mission of discipling others to be deep followers of Christ.
Sam gave his life to Jesus in 1979 at Meridian Park Church of the Nazarene in Oklahoma City. Just a short while later he was baptized and felt the Lord leading him to serve others and point them to Jesus. He married his high-school sweetheart, Teresa Bohn at the age of 20. God blessed them with three wonderful girls and several grandchildren that bring him great joy. He has the heart to support the mission field and introduce people to my savior Jesus Christ. He strives to live by the words of Jesus when He said, "Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone." (Mark 16:15). Through his business, God gives him plenty of opportunities to demonstrate his faith through love, to his customers and team members. He feels honored to be serving alongside this group of guys doing Kingdom work!
