Dan Barkdoll


Dan is one of our elders. He has his MD from the University of Cincinnati and is a local family physician. Because being a doctor isn’t impressive enough, Dan serves as the Medical Director for the Southeast Indiana Pregnancy Care Center and is a Young Life Committee Member.


When Dan isn’t saving lives, you might find him playing music, hanging out with his family, doing house projects, or flying kites and other projectiles (we’re looking into this last one)!  


He and his wife (Sara) have been at CFC for over 15 years and live close to church, near the Perfect North Ski Slopes. Dan and Sara will tell you that they are abundantly blessed with kids and kid-in-laws. In fact, they have six children and half of them are married! 

  • Their oldest daughter  Bethany is a Licensed Music Therapist and lives in Covington, KY with her husband Jimmy. 
  • Next is Abigail, who is getting her Masters degree in Music Theory and lives in Lexington, KY with her husband, Jason. 
  • The oldest son, Josiah,  also lives in Lexington and is in grad school to get his Master’s in Social Work. He recently married Savannah.  
  • The tallest is Ben, who is getting his Bachelor’s degree at NKU in Choral Music education.  
  • Next up is Daniel Jose, who is going to Ivy Tech for a degree in machining and welding.  
  • Saving the best for last, Jeremiah is in 9th grade at the Barkdoll Home school. 


We Asked Dan: 

What was the best concert you ever attended?

Favorite concert was Sara Groves, Andrew Peterson and Bebo Norman all in the same lineup on the same night. 


What is something interesting about you?

I did lots of crazy things as a kid and was very accident prone – breaking many different bones in many different accidents and suffering numerous lacerations requiring stitches.  My parents later said I went into Medicine because of my familiarity with the hospital at an early age. 


Tell us a good work story:


As a family practice physician, I have the privilege of being the doctor for people of all ages.  One day a few years ago, I saw a woman who was 108 years old in the morning and helped a newborn baby who was 24 weeks gestation that evening.  So in less than 24 hours, I saw one of the oldest and youngest people on the planet.


Ed Cox


Ed Cox is one of our Elders and our former interim-pastor. Ed and his wife, Linda, served as missionaries with The Navigators in four European countries over a 30-year period. Don’t be confused if Ed mentions going to prison, he currently serves through The Navigators to help those who are incarcerated in Indiana. 


When he isn’t doing ministry work, Ed enjoys backpacking and being a self-described “gentleman farmer”. We’re not sure if that refers to the crops and animals on his property or his lifelong commitment to discipling men, either way it fits him. Plus, if you need help with algebra, Ed has his BS in Math. 


Ed and his wife (Linda) have been at CFC for five years and live on the property Linda grew up on. They have three sons who were were born in Europe and are now scattered around the U.S.


We asked Ed: 

What is your favorite movie? The Mission


If you could visit anywhere, where would you go? It’s a toss up between Iceland and Patagonia.


Paul Woodburn


Paul Woodburn is our Senior Pastor. Even if no one else does, he thinks he’s funny. Combining that with his passion for digging into biblical truth, he calls himself “The Stand-up Scholar”.  If you came by the office during the week you might find him listening to Christian Hip-Hop or taking a break to check the latest report on the Cincinnati Bengals.  


Paul, his wife (Whitney), and two kids (Reagan & Titus) live in SE, Indiana not too far from our church. 


We asked Paul: 

What are you currently watching on Netflix? Whitney and I  just got done binging Better Call Saul. 

What is your favorite family tradition? We play a game every night at dinner. 

Sarah Phillips

Administrative Assistant

Sarah is our Director of Children’s Ministry & the church Administrative Assistant. She and her husband (Chris) have three children (Kayla, Rebekah, and Emily). For the past 20 years, they have lived in California, Colorado, Wyoming, and Indiana. 


When Sarah isn’t making sure things run smoothly around the church, she enjoys traveling with her family, even if it’s just a day trip somewhere.  She is also into sewing and crafts of almost any type.


We Asked Sarah:  

What is your favorite family tradition? Every year we create an elaborate gingerbread house, sometimes a whole village.

What is something interesting about you? I lead a kids robotics team even though I know nothing about robotics. I’ve learned that I can learn just about anything if I set my mind to it. 


If you could visit anywhere in the world you’ve never been, where would you go?  Europe. I love visiting historical sites.
