Meet Our Team

Rev. Shane Hardesty

Lynn and I are originally from eastern NC. We have been married for 30 years. Two adult children, Hank and Hannah.  I graduated from Fruitland Bible College, Hendersonville, NC, The Baptist College of Florida, Graceville, FL, and have a Master’s in Pastoral Ministries from Covington Theological Seminary, Rossville, GA.  We have served in Pastoral Ministry at Oakie Ridge Baptist Church, Chipley, FL. and Carr’s Hill Baptist Church, Brevard, NC.  We enjoy outdoor activities, especially anything involving salt water… Our passion, however, is ministering to those in need of love and compassion through a relationship with Jesus. 

Nancy Green

Nancy began her service at WCBC December 2023. Formerly she served at Great Bridge
Baptist Church in Chesapeake, VA for 14 years. Army Brat, a US Coast Guard Veteran, she is
mom of two, as well as grandmother of 5 amazing grandchildren. Nancy enjoys photography, is
a published freelance writer, and being a videographer & editor, she has hosted a YouTube
channel since December 2006. Exploring and travel are important, and her favorite adventures
were on a Russian mission team in 1990, Israel in 2008 and Alaska in 2012. Truly her greatest
joy is singing praise to the Lord and all aspects of Christian drama. Having created drama
teams in Alabama and Virginia, Nancy has seen the Lord use drama to reach the lost and
change lives.
