Chair- Jason Ragain - Jason, his wife Michelle, and their three daughters, Ashley (14), Beth (14), and Kate (13), started attending MCC in August 2020 after moving to the area from San Diego. Jason is a chaplain in the U.S. Navy and is assigned with the First Coast Guard District in Boston. Currently, he is serving as a Deacon, Community Group leader, and on the Connect Team at MCC. Fifteen years ago, he was on the other side of an Associate Pastor search as a candidate, so he knows those questions that can make someone squirm…even better he knows how encouraging the process can be for the committee, candidate, and church as they all witness God at work.
Vice Chair- Peter Soulé - Peter and his wife Melissa have been attending MCC for over 20 years. The two of them have raised 3 children, with the help of the MCC community, from infant to adult. He is currently serving as an Elder but also spent many years working with the church youth group. In addition he is a leader on the Connect Team. Outside of MCC you will find him coaching on the lacrosse field, or working in his “woodworking shop” (OK what his wife calls the garage). He also enjoys just sitting on the beach on LBI reading a book.
Josh Terry - Josh and his family have been attending MCC for 10 years. He is married to Heather, a Norfolk school teacher, and has two sons: Gabe (14) and Caleb (12). Josh has served in a variety of areas at the church but is currently working with the Youth Group. You’ll also see him up front on a Sunday morning with the Worship Ensemble and Worship Band. Outside of his busy church life you may find him watching the Weather Channel chasing the latest natural disaster for work, or on the sidelines of the soccer pitch doing his best Ted Lasso impersonation.
Alicia Bailey - Alicia and her husband, Jack, have been attending MCC for the past five years after moving to the area in 2017. They have three children: Lucas (12), Katherine (10), and Emma (8).
