Metsger • Lead Pastor
James talked Melissa into marrying him in 2001. Since then, Caedmon, Noah, and Amelia have rounded out their starting five. James joined the staff team at Christ Point in 2007. He loves preaching the word, walking with and caring for people. If he’s not scratching sermon notes on his dry erase board he’s sipping coffee with a friend asking, “How are you really doing?” When James isn’t at the office he’s at home chasing a soccer ball with his kids or chasing after his wife.
Jodi Richardson • Children’s Ministry Director
Jodi is from Pittsburgh, Pa and moved to the Charlotte area in 2006. She and her husband Wes have three little girls, Anna, Ruthie, and Phoebe-who all make life much more hilarious each day! Jodi has a passion for teaching BIG things to little people in creative and engaging ways. She loves to teach the gospel to kids and to remind them of how much they are loved by Jesus. Jodi also loves teaching art at Hope Academy, having dance parties with her daughters, drinking large quantities of coffee and going on dates with her husband.
Melissa Metsger • Executive Assistant and Communications
Melissa grew up in Michigan and has lived in Charlotte since 2007. She and James met at Cedarville University in Ohio where they were both pursuing degrees in Bible. They married in 2001 and moved to Dallas before returning back to Michigan and finally landing in Charlotte to begin Christ Point Church. Melissa has a passion for worship, women’s ministry, and for connecting people to one another and the Lord. She and James have three kids, all growing up too fast. She is most at home with her family, watching her kids do what they love, walking with a friend, and going out with James.
The elders at Christ Point have been entrusted with leading, shepherding, and caring for the people who call Christ Point home. They are men who have been called to protect the word, provide wisdom, and help guide the mission, vision, and values at Christ Point. They function as a team because we’re stronger working together than we are apart.
