Lead Pastor
Randal Ackland

‘I love this church family,’ Pastor Randal says. ‘CIC is a loving family who warmly welcomes others into it.’ Further, ‘there is a passion for seeking out those who don’t know Jesus, for whole-hearted worship, and to become like Jesus.’

 

Pastor Randal and his wife Connie have two daughters, Annie and Jolynn. They have led here since 2012 and have been in ministry since 1981. As former missionaries they love to learn about new cultures and are adventurous eaters. He invites you to introduce yourself when you visit.

Andrew Sargent, PhD
Education Pastor and IMTC Director

As a lifelong New Englander, born in Pawtucket, RI and raised in Norton, Mass, Dr. Sargent has a special heart for ministry in the Southern New England area. He and his Canadian wife, Melodie, have been married for just over 30 years with a tad more than 60 years of ministry experience between them. They have four grown children. As education pastor, it should not surprise you that his great passion is for the Scriptures, spending most of his life and writing trying to help people connect meaningfully with the Bible in its original context and to apply it wisely to their daily lives. Although a die-hard introvert, most people find him to be gregarious and friendly. He has traveled broadly, loves books and tends to be a bit of a movie buff. He also enjoys a rousing game of pool… on a slate-topped, tournament-sized table, naturally.
