Jackie McClure | Head Cook

I am Jackie McClure a grateful believer in Jesus Christ. I have been blessed to be a part of CCA since 2006. I began as the After School Care Program teacher where I was able to work with the kids on their homework, sing songs, teach a Bible centered lesson with crafts, and see firsthand the children grow in the knowledge of Jesus. The Lord then opened up an opportunity for me to teach Physical Education as well as become the “Lunch Lady”. I love that I am able to daily encourage the students in both of my roles at CCA. God has created them all so unique and special so that they can bring Him the Glory. They can do this while competing in a sports activity, encouraging a friend to not give up and to be thankful for their health He gives them. I hope to encourage the children to have a desire for Jesus, a desire to be able to do His work by taking care of their bodies and making them strong, so that they can serve Him. My hope is that with the prayer and devotions that I use to teach them they truly “can do all things through Christ which strengthens them. (Phil. 4:13)

Rick Lingenfelter | Food Services Assistant

I am joining the staff as a part time cook. I view this opportunity as my ministry to students to enable them to do their best academically in this Christian environment. I was fortunate enough to have been raised in a Christian home and have been actively involved particularly in music ministry. I hold a bachelor of science degree in hotel administration, and have extensive experience in institutional food service including elementary through high school food service. My wife and I, married 45 years, have lived in nine states searching for the “perfect climate” from the beach to the mountains, but settled here in central Missouri where we are relatively close to family. After all the moving, we still enjoy traveling.
