Jamie Essary

Children’s Director
 
On June 29, 2014, First Baptist Church welcomed Jamie Essary as Children’s Director. Jamie has had opportunities to work with children in both the public school setting as well as the church setting. She has served as a leader in GAs, Preschool Choir, Vacation Bible School and Awana. From 2006 to 2013, Jamie, her husband, Kyle, and their family served as missionaries to Malaysia through the International Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention. They spent four years as church planters in the city of Melaka. Her main focus was coordinating Women’s and Children’s events, including Sunday School, VBS, and outreach events.
 
In her role on staff with the church in the area of Children’s Ministry, Jamie will be ministering to and impacting entire families. Also, as Jamie says, “Teaching and training children to love the Lord raises up a generation of Christians that have the potential to make a great impact on the world.”
