Nikea Dills

Nikea Dills is a worship leader that seeks one thing at One Way; that the Lord be exalted in all that she says and does. She is not restricted to the systematic box that some place on worship leaders as merely good singers.

Her very life boasts in the adoration of the Lord Jesus Christ. When the spirit of worship that enraptures her is accompanied by her exceptional voice, all those listening find themselves obliged to focus hearts and minds on Heaven and together they bring their expression of worship to Him under the leadership of Nikea.


PASTOR DAKOTA & JESSY MCCARTY

Dakota and Jessy have been married for 7 years. They are parents to Brody, Axl, and Everett who they consider their tiny disciples. Having both grown up in a strong youth ministry their passion is to lead teens out of hardship and into the arms of The Heavenly Father. With a full understanding of the battles that today’s youth faces, God has used that to stir up a passion to connect with teenagers in the community. These two are kingdom minded, guiding our youth ministry to grow deeper in their relationship with Christ. They are reaching those who are lost and committed to bridge the divide between schools, communities, and youth groups. Every service, event, and appointment they have in this ministry is centered around showing the love of Jesus and having fun along the way.
