  • tiffany jones

    missions coordinator

    Tiffany is also a Hardin County native, growing up in Cecilia.  Youth group and youth theatre were two of the driving forces in her life.  Several years ago, she was given the chance to live for a while in the Philippines.  She wasn't aware at the time, but God was using that point in her life to plant a seed that would grow into a love for missions and heart for the people of the Philippines.  She is married Jeremy, Hardin County's greatest rock-n-roll tuba player.

  • scott & kathi maddox

    military family connections

    Scott and Kathi have been living a life that only military families can fully understand.  They have lived in several different states throughout the years and navigated the waters of multiple deployments where their family was separated from one another.  Through it all, they have seen God's faithfulness all along the way and now they are helping to lead The Vine to come alongside current military families and serve them in whatever stage of life they currently find themselves.  Scott & Kathi are the proud parents of their son Jacob.
