Stan Martin, Associate 
Stan is a recovering Preacher’s Kid who grew up all over (10 houses and 8 schools in three states) before attending James Madison University, where he received a BA in History. After spending two years at Mid Atlantic Christian University, where he met and married Christi, he got his Master’s in Theology from Cincinnati Christian University. He and Christi have two grown children.
Stan teaches, preaches, and leads the Celebrate Recovery ministry at CACC, besides being the resident Geek Squad.
