Elders & Staff

Chase Krug

Lead Pastor

I am passionate about helping people find their identity and satisfaction in Christ. As Lead Pastor, I am committed to helping New Century reach people for Christ and disciple them to know and treasure the privileges of the Gospel. When I'm not reading,  I enjoy college football, golf, movies, music, good food, and trying new things. After graduating from the University of Alabama, I earned an M.Div. from Southeastern Seminary in Wake Forest, NC where I am currently writing my dissertation in view of earning a Ph.D. in Systematic Theology. I am married to my best friend and better half Rebecca. We welcomed our son Pierce in January of 2020 and our daughter Cassie in August of 2022.

Chris cavitt

Pastor of Discipleship

My wife, Moriah, and I came to New Century in 2023.  I have a great love for the church of Jesus Christ and am passionate about training and teaching people - particularly the younger generations - to know God through his Word, trust Christ for salvation, and live to his glory.  I received my undergraduate degree from West Texas A&M University and later an MTS from Southwestern Seminary in Fort Worth, TX.  Currently, I'm back in school pursuing a M.Div. at Southern Seminary in Louisville, KY.  I am a proud native Texan who greatly enjoys barbeque, disc golf, travel, Star Wars, Legos, and cheering for the Dallas Mavericks.  Moriah and I married in 2020 (not recommended) and love to serve the church together.

Randy farthing

Children's Pastor

I have been working with the children of New Century since 2003.  I am a graduate of Reformed Theological Seminary with a Masters in Christian Education.  My wife Cathy and I have 3 grown children and 4 grandchildren.

aaron Smith


I have been a member of New Century since 2001 where I have enthusiastically served in many aspects of the church including men’s ministry, hosting and leading home small groups, helping in the pre-school, and as a trustee. Since 2017 I have loved serving as an elder of the church and helping us all “be transformed by the renewing of our minds to test and approve of God’s will” as Paul writes in Romans 12:1-2. I am an Eagle Scout who enjoys reading, building anything big or small, distance running, and especially being in God’s creation of the wilderness with my wife of over 20 years, Joanna, and our son and daughter. 

Greg Smith


I became an elder in 2020 and have a passion for the scriptures, especially when it comes to linking Old and New Testament Theology. This was cultivated by my time at Appalachian Bible College where I earned a BA in Biblical Theology in 2000. As a native West Virginian, my wife, Melissa and I, have called Roanoke and New Century Church home for the past fifteen years. Over the years I have served in the roles of small group leader, mission’s director, and youth leader.  We have three children, Micah, Levi and Kylah. In my free time, I can be found on the soccer field, ski slopes or playing video games. 

JOhnny Sink


I have been an elder at NCC since the beginning of 2020 and a member since the early 2000’s.  I am currently the OG elder because I am the only elder originally from Roanoke.  I am married to Cristen, who I met at JMU, and we have three children, Kathryn, Jackson, and Waverly.  At JMU I majored in history and minored in secondary education and taught for some time.  I am a self-proclaimed history nerd.  When I'm not peddling technology and coming up with new business ideas you can find me lifting weights, playing golf or doing 101 other things, including reading history. 

Melissa smith

Youth Assistant

I have served at New Century in a variety of roles over the last fifteen years. Currently, I help lead worship and assist in youth programs. My attention to detail and love of planning trips and events, along with a desire for students to grow in their love for Jesus and others, help me in my role as Youth Assistant. In 2001, I earned my BA in Biblical Theology at Appalachian Bible College, where I met my husband Greg. We have been married since 2000 and have three children, Micah, Levi and Kylah. I enjoy experimenting in the kitchen, modifying recipes and eating healthy foods with a side of dark chocolate. 

Jennifer wilson

Financial Secretary

I have been the financial secretary for New Century Church since 2016 and love my job!  I have been married to my husband, Kent, for 21 years and counting and we have a son, Jake.  When I'm not in the office, I enjoy knitting, cross-stitching, baking and reading. 

Ann Wilcox

Administrative Secretary

I joined the NCC team in 2023. I have been married to my husband Tim since 1994 and have 4 grown children. We moved to the Smith Mountain Lake from the DC/Baltimore area in 1996. I enjoy listening to books, snuggling with my black labs, and especially playing games and watching movies with my family and friends.
