FOUNDING & LEAD PASTORS:
Mike and Barb Cameneti
Pastors Mike and Barb are the founding and lead pastors of Faith Family Church—a local church that had its start as a Bible study in the basement of a Canton, Ohio home. Together they have spent the last three decades serving the people of this community and beyond by helping them establish and grow in their relationship with God. Married for nearly forty years, they have two adult children, Michael (Amber) Cameneti and Stephanie (Noah) Nickel, and love being Nina and Papa to their six grandchildren: Kade, Paisley, Paxton, Ava, Bear, and Sunday.

Since joining the staff in 2004, he has worked in multiple capacities, including the middle and high school ministries and launching our connect groups ministry. Derrick and his wife Kristen have been married for over 15 years, and enjoy all things Cleveland sports, home projects, and building Lego sets and watching Star Wars with their sons, Evan and Lincoln.

Prior to their move to the Fairlawn campus, Josh oversaw the generational ministries of Faith Family Church and Jillian served alongside him ministering to youth and young adults.
