Caitlyn Criner

Aletheia Jr. Director

Caitlyn is a huge fan of organization, procrastination, healthy food, ice cream, and things that are opposites.  She is from a tiny town in southwest Virginia and attended James Madison University, where she got her master’s in Elementary Education.  While in college, she got involved in Aletheia and eventually moved to Gainesville to help start Aletheia Gainesville.  Caitlyn oversees Aletheia Jr, which seeks to point our children to Jesus.  She works at the University of Florida and enjoys reading and spending time with her husband, Dereck, and son, Trip.

Jackie Anderson

Special Events Team Co-Leader

Jackie grew up in Virginia, where she studied mathematics and secondary education at James Madison University. She moved to Florida in 2011 with her husband Kevin and is now mom to Gideon and Josiah. The vision for special events is to both build relationships within our body of believers as well as provide opportunities to reach out and invite others (friends, neighbors, co-workers, etc.) to join us in the fun.

Steven Crews

Greeting Team Leader

Steven grew up in the sprawling metropolis of Orlando, Florida. After high school, he moved to Gainesville to attend Santa Fe College in 2007 where he met his beautiful wife, Myra. After graduating Santa Fe, he majored in Christian Studies at The Baptist College of Florida and is currently seeking his Masters in Biblical Studies there. After interning at Mosaic Church of Crestview and River Cross Church, he began attending Aletheia in early 2016. Steven’s vision for the greeting team is that it would serve not only as a first point of contact for first time visitors and guests, but that it would also serve to connect those already in attendance to further involvement with the church.
