About Our Staff

Cara Croft

I have a desire to minister to women who are in ministry or married to someone in ministry. As a wife to a senior pastor (who has also been an associate pastor, youth pastor and music pastor) for over 20 years, I understand some of the pressure and challenges that accompany ministry work. In speaking at conferences, I am finding women connecting with my own struggles that I share and needing someone with whom to talk. My desire is to give an opportunity for you to share and have someone hear you.

I am not a licensed counselor, but I do have a Bachelor of Science in Psychology with an emphasis in Christian counseling.  I am currently working on my master’s degree also in counseling. I enjoy being a student. I am also a mom to 4 children (1 son and 3 daughters) who are quickly becoming adults and on the verge of leaving the nest. I enjoy teaching, speaking, learning and walking beside others who are struggling. I love photography, being outside, music, drinking coffee, and reading (both fiction and nonfiction). I look forward to serving you and walking with you as we strive to be faithful servants of God.

Kellye Carmack

My name is Kellye, and I am excited to join Cara in serving you. As a pastor’s daughter, I am well acquainted with the heartache and the stress that can press down on a family in ministry. I also know the joy and grace that God gives the same family as they pour out their lives for His people. I am eager to connect with women who are in ministry and married to those in ministry to support them and extend the compassion that God has given to me and my family.

I have an undergraduate degree in Biblical Studies and a master’s degree in Biblical Counseling. When I was single, I served as a missionary in Western Europe for two years helping to share the hope of Christ with women in difficult situations. While in seminary, I met my husband Craig and we are both currently on staff at our church in Louisville, Kentucky. I am a co-leader in the women’s ministry where I enjoy getting to teach, counsel, and encourage other women. I love helping women discover the unique ways God has gifted them to serve the church. I also enjoy baking, traveling, and finding new international restaurants to try with my husband.
