Serving the Church

Steve Norris

Preaching Minister

Steve & Sandy's Bio
Sandy and I moved to Conway and to R&C in September 2009 after fifteen years with the North Heights church in Batesville, AR. I am an Arkansan by birth, Sandy was born and raised in Michigan, though by southern parents. It only causes problems on the rare occasion that Arkansas plays Michigan (She’s a little conflicted -- I’m fine).

We have three daughters. Whitney is co-owner and therapist (MFT) at Little Rock Counseling & Wellness. Leeann is an Assistant Professor at Harding University, her husband Jordan is a therapist (MFT) and Co-owner of ReNEW Counseling & Wellness, they have two sons, Jude and Luke. Our oldest daughter, Lindsey, works part-time for the Lewisville Church of Christ, where her husband Keith serves as the preaching minister.  They have our two oldest grands, Kade and Zoe.  All three girls, and two sons-in-law, are Harding grads.

I have been preaching full-time now for forty-five years. Sandy and I met when I went to Michigan to attend a preaching school there right out of high school. After graduation there I continued my education and have earned both undergraduate and graduate degrees from Harding University.

Sandy and I love living in Conway and are excited about what lies in store for this church and community. 

Jacob Mayfield

Campus Minister

Jacob & Gina's Bio
My wife Gina and I started working with the Bears for Christ ministry in 2018 after serving as youth minister at R&C for 4 years. We are definitely no strangers at Robinson & Center. Gina grew up here and when I came to college at UCA in 2008, I came up through the Bears for Christ Ministry and served as a resident intern for 2 years. Gina and I were married in April of 2011 and had our son Macoy in December 2015, our daughter Jordanna in November 2017, and our daughter Oakley in June 2019. We met through the ministry here at Robinson and Center and are excited to be back and working with the congregation where we got our start.
I graduated from Arkansas Tech University with a degree in Psychology, while Gina graduated from UAMS as a dental hygienist. However, we both have degrees from UCA and claim that as our Alma Mater. Go Bears!
We are extremely blessed to get to minister to a great group of teens and college students here and love getting to share our passion for Christ with them.

Youth Minister

Daniel & Maci's Bio
I grew up in Morrilton and was introduced to R&C through a friend asking me to come to a youth group lock-in when I was 15. I’ve been in love with the church here ever since
I went to school at Crowley’s Ridge College in Paragould, AR and majored in Youth and Family Ministry. I was the R&C Summer Youth Intern for two summers before taking the full time Youth and Family Minister job in 2020.
I met my wife Maci at R&C and we were married in 2020. We do not have kids yet but we do have two huskies; Ash and Ember, who keep us entertained all the time. We both love R&C so much and are thrilled to be working beside so many great people for the glory of God!
