Leadership Team:

Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.


Mel Workman, Senior Minister

I have been serving as Senior Minister at FCCN since August 2013.  I filled the pulpit for a couple months before being asked to serve in a full-time role.  Serving in ministry is my second career.  I started a business in 1998 and transitioned away from the business world when God opened the door for me in Neoga.  The first time I stepped foot in the church, I asked the church secretary for a roster of members of the church so that I could begin praying for them daily.  I believe this is why God opened the door.  Praying for others, even if you haven’t yet met them, creates a loving bond between God’s people.  And God did give me a love for the people, church, and community that is still fueling my passion. 
Married for 24 years, I, my wife, Andrea, and our children, Amia, Noah, Lija and Jona, reside in Sullivan, IL.
