Pastor Ann Hoy
Pastor of Christian Education and Youth Ann.Hoy@FaithFellowshipWeb.com
Ann is remarkably gifted in education and discipleship. She has led some of the most creative and dynamic ministries in our community, touching thousands of families and lives for Jesus. She has a passion for sharing the Gospel in real and genuine ways with people of all ages, but she is particularly passionate about reaching the generation of students who are making life decisions that will shape the rest of their lives.
Pastor Paul W. Reece
After successful careers in the business world, Paul has finally decided what he wants to be when he grows up. His job here at Faith Fellowship has become his dream job. The business skill he gained as a comptroller in the television industry and as an owner of a mortgage company help him to adminstratively and financially guide Faith Fellowship. Since becoming part of the Faith Fellowship staff, he has graduated from the EFCA Theological Institute and has become a licensed minister with the Evangelical Free Church of America. If Paul had to pick the best part of his job, it would be working with the people and families that are a part of the congregation. He and his wife, Lisa, love to travel and try new adventures. They have two married daughters (Amanda & Kevin, grandchildren James and Emily, and Lauren & Jonathan, grandchildren Levi & Luke). Paul will tell you he is from nowhere (which as you get to know him you will understand it is probably true), but he was born in Newfoundland, Canada and grew up in an Air Force family. He eventually worked his way down the east coast to sunny Florida.
Pastor Ricky Pacheco
Pastor of Spanish Ministries
Pastor Ricky joined the Faith Fellowship Staff in January of 2011. He was born in New York and raised in Puerto Rico. He married the love of his life and best friend, Maribel and together have three daughters, Angelica, Yashira and Giselle. They are grandparents to four beautiful grandkids- Krystal, Christian, Celine and Gabriel. Before becoming pastors, Ricky and Maribel served the church through an evangelistic music ministry for 12 years. These were years of much traveling in many of the states and in both Central and South America. In the year 2005, they planted La Novia del Cordero (LNDC) in Melbourne, FL which was later adopted by Faith Fellowship Church as their Spanish ministry. Pastor Ricky is beloved for his infectious laugh, dynamic preaching and amazing bear hugs!
Originally from upstate New York, Mike went to Cedarville University in Ohio. Having done his time in the snow, he loves the warm weather of Florida and has lived here for almost 20 years. Mike is the part-time worship leader at FFC and has been in ministry in both full-time and part-time capacities his whole life. He is the music teacher at Viera Charter School where he specializes in middle school choirs and band. His wife, Jill, is a first grade teacher and music teacher at Creel Elementary in Melbourne.

Mike’s heart is to see the church thrive. Worship, powerful teaching, and relational connections all impact both the church and the world. Mike wants to be an active part of the seeing the world changed for and through Christ.
Galatians 2:20 I am crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
Youth Ministry Associate Jennifer.Walters@FaithFellowshipWeb.com
Jenn Walters was born and raised in Melbourne, FL. Ever since she received an invite from a friend in middle school to attend youth group, she has thrown her heart and soul into Faith Fellowship Church. While attending Palm Beach Atlantic University in West Palm Beach, Jenn spent her summers working for, and volunteering at FFC. She graduated college in 2009 Magna Cum Laude with a BS in Dance and Student Ministry. That same month, she married her husband, John, a fellow “Faith Fellowship Graduate” and a few months later they moved to Seattle, WA for a new adventure. After 2 ½ years in WA spent teaching children and dancing in Sixth Day Dance (a modern, Christian dance company), Jenn and John returned home to start a family. They are currently raising their two young daughters, Meliana and Adelyse, and pursuing their passions. Jenn’s favorite things are her family, coffee, dancing, blogging, and quiet (early) mornings with God. With returning to Faith Fellowship staff, Jenn is most excited about pouring back into the very youth group that shaped her to be the woman she is now, and most importantly, having the opportunity to mold and guide youth in their walk with Christ, just like others at FFC did for her.
Director of Children's Ministry Kristy.Crowe@FaithFellowshipWeb.com
Kristy was born and raised in Melbourne, FL. As the eldest of 4 girls, she's cared for younger children as long as she can remember. She met her husband, Nick, at the University of Florida where he was on the Cheerleading Team and she on the Dance Team. They, as well as their two awesome kids, moved back to Melbourne to be closer to family. Kristy is excited to be the Children's Ministry Director, as she loves kids and considers it a blessing to see them grow in their faith.

Pam enjoys reading, fishing, bike riding, and spending time with her family.
Assistant to the Executive Pastor Jill.Weber@FaithFellowshipWeb.com
Jill and her husband, Chris, have been with Faith Fellowship a few months shy of forever. Her four sons were raised at Faith Fellowship, and are grown now; their ages will not be revealed in an effort to keep Jill’s age discreet. She loves working for Pastor Paul Reece and co-teaches Youth Sunday School…well, her husband teaches and she aides. However, she makes the best Sunday morning desserts that you will ever taste. Ask anyone. As for her International Law degree…well, working at Faith Fellowship is much more rewarding.
Assistant to the Pastor of Christian Education and Youth Kristin.Pakulak@FaithFellowshipWeb.com
Originally from the West Coast, she’s been a waitress and administrative assistant, but nothing is more rewarding to her than sharing God’s love with families at church. Kris is gifted with patience, as exhibited by her loyal support of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. She loves Almond Joy candy bars – because sometimes you feel like a nut – and will only drink Diet Pepsi. Kris and her husband, Matt, live in Rockledge. She is a proud Mama of four sons.
Sharon moved to Florida from Pennsylvania in 2011 with her husband Mike, two sons Josh and Dan, and has loved it here from Day 1. Sharon is the friendly voice that greets you as our receptionist Wed – Fri. She keeps the database in order, and does whatever else is needed to get us ready for the weekend services or other events we hold. She is also an adult volunteer on Youth Retreats and Summer Camp. Sharon loves serving God and serving others, and enjoys doing this alongside everyone here at FFC.
