Youth Pastor

Adam Cabana

 
Pastor Adam was born and raised in Pace, Florida. He pursued his call to ministry by moving to Tennessee to attend Trevecca Nazarene University. In 2007, he graduated from TNU with a major in religion and minor in Youth Ministry. Since 2008, Pastor Adam has served as Youth Pastor, Young Adult Pastor and Campus Life Pastor.
 
Adam enjoys tinkering with technology and spending time with his family—beautiful wife, Kristin, and three daughters: Hannah, Abigail and Chloe. Adam’s philosophy of “church” is not a place you go or something you do. To him, church is something you live out, it’s a lifestyle.

Children’s Ministry Director

Brenda Woolum

 

Our Children’s Department goal at Ensley Nazarene is to partner with parents!  We want to give parents what they need to become the primary spiritual leaders for their children. During their time with us, children experience an awesome environment where they can learn life applications. In addition to Family Worship (KidStuf-Sundays at 9:30am), resources are available for families to continue the use and learning of the life app throughout the week.

Brenda Woolum heads up our Children’s Department team as Children’s Director. She has four girls and a son-in-law: Morgan, Summer, Courtney, Kristin and Adam, and is proud Mimi to 3 granddaughters. The entire Children’s Department team (teachers, cast, assistants, technical staff…) is a group of talented, loving, volunteers. The Children’s Department keeps things going for all our kids from birth to 6th grade!
