Mike is originally from Fayetteville, Arkansas. After an encounter with God he moved to Tulsa, OK to study Pastoral Ministry at Rhema Bible College.

Hello! My name is Katy Caple. I am married to Mike Caple and we have a 9 month old son named Kade. I am originally from Indiana and moved to Oklahoma for bible college when I was 19. I met and married my husband Mike in 2013, and we have been at cedar point church since 2013. We are the youth pastors of Driven Cedar Point, which takes place on Wednesday nights for 6th-12th grade students.

I am also the Church Administrator. A few of the things that my job entails is coordinating information to the staff, tracking financial giving and expenses, ordering supplies, and keeping things organized. I love doing office work and being a part of a team.

lee annLea Ann McCombs - Counselor

For the past 7 years, I have served as a certified lay counselor for Cedar point church, serving our church and people in the surrounding communities. I also write the weekly devotional we provide at every service. 

I have been married to Wayne for 32 years, and we are the parents of 4 young adults (Mandi, Sam, Susie, and Micah),grandparents of exceptionally-adorable 2-year-old Isabella, and owners of two psychotic cats and a sweet-but-dumb Irish Setter named Babe. 

God called me to a counseling ministry after going through my own season of brokenness and heartache. After He had healed and restored me, He showed me that what I had considered wasted suffering was in fact His graduate school for future ministry. He called me to share what He had taught me with others who were hurting. After several months of training and certifications, I began this ministry with the hope that I might help a few Cedar point people. I never imagined what God had in mind. 

He is using Cedar Point Counseling to reach people who may not otherwise be reached. By offering free counseling to anyone who comes, I am able to share the good news about Jesus with people who would not be open to it under other circumstances. Counseling is never one-size fits all, but Jesus has one truth that fits all. When broken people allow that one Truth to penetrate their layers of hurt and anger, they find healing and a future they did not know existed. My greatest joy is being surrounded every week at church by people whose lives have been transformed by the power of Jesus. I know their stories. I know where they've come from. I know what the power of God has helped them overcome. And I get to watch them plugging in, growing, and becoming story-changers themselves. I am grateful that God allows me to be a part of what He is doing at Cedar point.

shannonShannon Schuler

Shannon has spent her whole life in the Claremore area.  She and her husband, Jason, have been married since 1998 and have two daughters, Jesilyn and Haylee.  They joined Cedar Point with a strong desire to serve, and began doing just that, serving as leaders in both Driven and Kidslife.  When the opportunity arose to get involved with the iGrow ministry, Shannon was thrilled.  This gave her the opportunity to connect with the youngest members of the church, and be the first to see that they are introduced to Jesus.

Igrow is our Pre-School ministry for children from infancy to Pre-K. At Igrow, we don’t do childcare, we do children’s ministry.  We accomplish this through activities and crafts that are based around Bible lessons that are tailored to each specific age group.  It is our goal to partner with the parents of Cedar Point to lay the foundation of their children’s faith that they can build upon throughout their lives while building lifelong bonds with peers and caregivers alike.
