Ryan & Joelle Cole


For around 17 years, we have been actively involved in the life and ministry of CVC. During this current season of life, we have children participating in the ministries of both Collide (middle school) and Impact (high school). As a result, it seems only natural to dive headlong into student ministries to help wherever we can.
