I became a Christian when I was 14 years old, and I surrendered my life to ministry when I was 16.  I was licensed into the ministry by Kinfolks Ridge Baptist Church in 1992, and was ordained by a Non-Denominational organization in October of 2009.  I began serving here as the full-time Minister of Music in December 2012.  I am a graduate of Caruthersville High School, here in Caruthersville, Mo, and attended college at Valley Forge Christian in Phoenixville, Pa as a double major in music education and youth ministry until May of 1995.  

My vision for the music ministry of our church is to create an atmosphere of worship using a blend of traditional hymns, contemporary praise, and classic spiritual songs of the church that will allow people of all ages to enter in and truly worship the Lord.  I believe the songs, whether congregational, choir anthems, or solos must be scripturally sound and give all glory and honor to our Lord, Jesus Christ.  Another part of my vision for my ministry here at FBC Caruthersville is to give others an opportunity to minister to the body of Christ and our community through music and the arts.  This is the driving force behind the worship choir and youth fine arts team, Extreme Arts.  

If you are looking for a church were you and your family can minister together by using your talents for the glory of God, then this is that church!  We would love to have you be a part of our vision and ministry.
