Trent Messick

Chair

Becoming a C12 Chairman is the answer to Trent’s heart desire to see the Kingdom of God advanced in the lives of business owners and their companies.  Trent comes to C12 with a breadth of experience from founding his own business to starting and remaining Chairman of a Crisis Pregnancy Center in Murfreesboro, TN.

 

Trent founded Messick Homecare at age 23 to provide medical equipment and supplies to patients in their homes.  The business quickly grew to seven locations throughout Middle Tennessee.  Trent not only provided leadership for his company, but became president of the Tennessee Home Medical Providers Association and was the first chairman of the National Association’s board of delegates.  Trent sold his company in 1996 and became Vice President of Operations for HouseCall Medical where he had operational responsibility for $125 million in sales.

Trent has been involved in church planting, leading small groups, leading worship, and men’s groups for over 30 years.  He has a passion to see men step up to their role as servant leaders.  He is involved in ministries that plant churches among unreached people groups in North Africa and provide education and hope to 1,400 underprivileged children in Uganda.

 

Trent has been married to his high school sweetheart, Laura for over 34 years.  They have three children: Caralyn, Meagan, and Brandon.  Both girls are married and have blessed Trent and Laura with seven grandchildren.  Brandon is currently at Middle TN State University where he is studying business and is on the track team.

Dewey Greene

Managing Chair

Friends called them “Ken and Barbie with kids.”  From the outside – looking in – it was true.  Dewey and Jeannie were blessed with five beautiful children, a promising health care career, and, from all indications, were firmly grounded in the church.

Looks can be deceiving.  A sincere, strong commitment to the church, with a non-existent personal relationship with the Living God, is a formula for disaster,… an invisible ticking time bomb.  Dewey, –enjoying worldly success,– was blindly adrift in man’s sinful nature.  His world would collapse.  He, and those nearest to him, suffered greatly.

But God is present.  He is not the enfeebled grandfather that we envisioned.  No, God is miraculous.  What no man nor woman could have done, God did.  He intervened and radically rescued Dewey and Jeannie; and, one day at a time, He continues to plant their feet on solid ground.

Dewey was born and reared in Macon, Georgia.  He has BS in Industrial Engineering from Georgia Tech and a Master’s in Health Administration from Duke University.  Dewey and Jeannie are the proud parents of five adult children, an adopted son whom God has entrusted to their care, and fourteen beautiful grandchildren.  They live in Nashville, Tennessee.

Dewey’s heart for God is reflected in his personal mission statement: “Every day, purpose to hear and follow God’s call –that Christ Jesus be honored in my innermost thoughts and manifested in my love for others” (John 15:9-13).  His hope and prayer is that God will powerfully use him as a vessel in C12’’s ministry.  Dewey is also the author of “Painful Gifts”; a simple but profound story that reveals the presence of the Living God.
