MAJ John Childress &
Marie Childress

(And Family)


Hometown:  Roanoke, Virginia

OCF Role:  Officers in Charge
Passion:  I desire to both enable OCF to work with the Corps and also to be a vibrant testimony of God's love and purpose to the military community of Cadets and Officers at West Point.

Cadet in Charge
Blake Bucknam Hometown: Boulder, Colorado 
Major:  International Relations
OCF Role:  Cadet in Charge. Leads by serving the Core Team and OCF.
Vision: I grew up in a Christian household with 3 brothers and my parents.  In 8th grade I began to better understand the concept of having a true relationship with Jesus Christ, and that year I asked to get baptized while on a missions trip on the Amazon River.  My personal goal for myself and for OCF this year is that we can glorify God in all that we do.  I pray that we can live out 1 John 4:19, and love others simply because He first loved us.  A common vision of myself and other cadets in charge of other Christian clubs at West Point is for the Kingdom of God to be magnified at West Point.  We are seeking this year to be unified within the cadet ranks, as the West Point church as a whole seeks God this academic year.
Assistant Cadet in Charge
William Pinkerton Home State: Grew up in Africa (my parents were missionaries there)
Major:  Civil Engineering
OCF Role:  Assistant Cadet in Charge. Manage emails and reminders. Help organize functions when needed and fill in for Blake (CIC) is his absence.
Goal: I am super excited for OCF this year. Over the past three years OCF has helped me grow so much in my walk with Jesus Christ. By bing ACIC I hope to make it possible for others to have the same OCF experience that I have had at West Point. 
Worship Team Leader
Seth King Home State  Florida
Major:  Information Technology
OCF Role:  Worship Team Leader. Provides music for those who come to OCF that helps them focus on the person of God, allowing them to worship him and prepare to hear His voice.
Vision:  My aim is to make the worship minsitry not only a service to OCF but more importantly a service to the Lord. Whether it is making ourselves available for help, being on time, and always being present when needed, the worship team will worship the Lord in Spirit and in Truth and will help the body of believers do the same by focusing on drawing closer to Him in all that we do.
