Our youth ministry team is here for students. Our passion is to lead them into a passionate relationship with Jesus, and we are blessed to be able to work with and support each other in ministry. Below is a little bit about ourselves, but please feel free to ask any questions about us that you might have!

Hello! I'm Ricky Cavitt and have been since 1960. I have a beautiful wife and two awesome children! God has blessed me with four awesome interns, and I have had the opportunity to work at Coggin for 31 years. My favorite hobby is hunting, and if you don't believe me then come check out my office sometime! I always have snacks, so stop by and let's chat!
