Our Staff
Ron Nolen
Senior Pastor
Ron and his wife, Pat, moved to Perry in July of 1985 to lead First Christian when it was a new church of approximately 20 people. Their 33 years of ministry at FCC have brought challenges along with rich rewards. Ron and Pat have three children and four grandchildren, and they are pleased to have all of them living in the middle Georgia area at this time. They look forward to the blessings and opportunities that God will bring to the First Family in the coming years.

Kevin Adkins
Minister of Worship & Connections
Kevin came onboard as FCC’s Minister of Music and Connections in 2009. As our Worship Leader, Kevin desires to help everyone understand the importance of worshiping God, not just on Sundays, but as a way of life. He and his wife, Brenda, married in 1981 and have a son and a daughter. If their smiles seem especially bright recently, it’s because they just welcomed their first grandchild into the family!
