About Us: 

Matt Bamber came to know the Lord when he was 20 and has been striving to grow with Him ever since. Matt has been attending NCF regularly since 2014. During all these times, he has been able to experience many different types of churches, teachings, and small group styles since 2014. He enjoys spending time in the word and discussing it in depth with others. One of his greatest passions is being missional, reaching unbelievers with the good news in any way possible and building relationships with believers and unbelievers alike.  Matt and his wife, Jody, married in March of 2016. This group is focused on serving one another whether it be through discussion, joking, playing games, sharing a meal, or just spending time together. We strongly encourage a discipleship mentality and desire to grow one another and grow with one another in knowing the Lord more deeply.

Nancy Gyure, her husband Mark, and 2 sons, have a part of NCF since early 2014, and have enjoyed learning and growing within its fellowship.  Prior to the family move to North Carolina, Nancy was involved in youth group/leadership at their previous home church for many years.  During that time she found blessings not only in the weekly interactions, but also in opportunities that came from event and mission trips, both in and out of the USA.

Hey guys, my name is Jared Stine, I have a lovely wife Noelle Stine and we have two kids Kadence and Asher.  I was born in Italy but I’ve lived in Cameron most of my life. We found NCF in April of 2015 and felt the Lord in the house from day one.  This men’s group will be a way to bond as men through friendship, accountability, and living life together. The group will touch on struggles in our lives followed with the support and truth of God’s word, what God calls us to be as Men of God, and finding ways to witness to others with respect, love, and truth when we are tested in our faith.
