Faithlab is a place where creative people work to help congregations and religious organizations share their stories.
We have staff in Georgia and Kentucky, but we work with groups all over the USA.
David Cassady is the founder and president of Faithlab, and the President of the Baptist Seminary of Kentucky.
Cassady brings over 15 years of experience in Christian publishing. He was the first employee of Smyth & Helwys Publishing, where he worked his way to Publisher & Executive Vice President.
He earned a B.A. in Religion and Philosophy from Ouachita Baptist University, studied philosophy at Baylor University, and received an M.Div. C.E. and a Ph.D. in Christian Education from Southern Seminary. David has served as minister in churches in Arkansas and Kentucky, including 7 years as Associate Pastor at Buechel Park Baptist Church in Louisville.
David is renowned for his short attention span, which he credits for gaining a wide variety of interests including the future of the church, theological education, technology and photography.
When not rooting for the Arkansas Razorbacks, he likes to annoy his family, listen to jazz and classic rock on his vintage Klipsch Heresy speakers, smoke meat on his Big Green Egg, tinker with his vintage computer collection and visit with his pals at Waffle House.
Jean Trotter was part of the editorial division at Smyth & Helwys Publishing for more than six years before leaving to become a stay-at-home mom. When the youngest was off to kindergarten, Jean became part of the Faithlab team.
Jean earned a B.S. in Business Administration and Accounting, with a Spanish minor, from Presbyterian College in Clinton, South Carolina. Through the years she has added less mathy skills, and as a result has become something of a jack-of-all-trades.
She is an active member of Highland Hills Baptist Church, where she serves on multiple committees, sings with the sanctuary choir, and volunteers when possible.
More than anything, Jean loves being with her family and friends. It's a bonus if the togetherness occurs while feet are in the sand, or when roller coasters are involved.
Around Faithlab, Jean is appreciated for her plentiful wit and humor, and her ability to solve most any problem.
Stephanie Wohl grew up in Savannah, GA, where she shaped the minds of little people as a teacher before becoming a full-time wife and mother.
She earned a B.F.A. in Art Education from University of Georgia, and received a M.Ed. in Instructional Technology from Georgia Southern. The latter by taking the long road with one class a semester after her youngest started school.
Stephanie loves to travel and document her travels with her creative photography skills. While not traveling, thinking about where she would like to go or planning a trip, she loves to be with her family, watch movies and spend time outdoors.
Megan Carpenter is Faithlab's lead web developer. She is a recent graduate of LaGrange College, where she earned a B.A. in Art History with a concentration in Museum Studies. While in school she very much enjoyed ceramics classes, eating ice cream, and serving as chapter president for Kappa Delta Sorority. She previously worked as an intern and an event photographer for the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship of Georgia.
Megan is married to Adam Carpenter, who one day hopes to own 20 different bikes. In between work and playing with their dog Nelly, she spends many hours perfecting her Pinterest boards and catching up on Pretty Little Liars.
Adam is our go-to guy for video work here at Faithlab. In 2016 he earned a B.A. in Church Leadership from LaGrange College with a minor in Photography and Servant Leadership. Through college Adam split his time between working as manager and head mechanic at Golden's Bikes and as an intern at Saint Marks Episcopal Church and LaGrange First United Methodist Church. He currently works as a bicycle fanatic at Pedal Power Bike Shop in Downton Lexington, Kentucky.
Adam lives with his wife, Megan, and his spoiled dog, Nelly. He enjoys pretty much everything—specifically cameras and chicken wings.
