Current Front Office Staff:
Kelly Meadows, Administrative Assistant and Financial Secretary: Kelly has been a vital part of First Baptist Church for 20 years, and plans to retire in June 2020. In addition to accounting duties, Kelly also serves as a coordinator of all things front office, the “go to” person for information central, our communications specialist and multi-tasker extraordinaire. Her commitment extends far beyond any job description, as Kelly can also often be found giving prayerful support to callers, staff and visitors and lending her talents in countless ways in support of the church’s mission. Kelly’s love for Christ shows in all she does, and she will be sorely missed.
Kelly is looking forward to spending time with her husband Bill, having more time to devote to her art and painting, and visiting grandchildren in North Carolina.
Jere Hickok, Administrative Assistant: Jere has been a part-time office employee for just over two years. We were very fortunate that Jere was already familiar with many of the office routines having worked in the primary clerical role years ago at First Baptist and elsewhere. Jere assists Kelly however she is needed and assumes the primary role for Kelly’s vacations.
Also retiring, Jere plans to remain in the office until the new clerical employees are comfortable with their duties to ensure a smooth transition. We are so grateful for her dedication to the church and to the Lord. Jere has been a tremendous blessing to the entire staff, and she too will be sorely missed.
Both Kelly and Jere plan to continue attending First Baptist Church after they retire.
Coming Soon, New Office Staff:
We are pleased to introduce two new part-time front office employees: Jen Martin and Sarah Janssen! Both are lovely Christian women who are active in their home churches and are uniquely educated and qualified to fill these positions. We are very excited for you to meet these two in the coming weeks.
Jen Martin will be our new Financial Secretary. She will work Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Jen lives in Bennett Switch with her husband Chaz and three children, ages 5, 3 and newborn. Her family photo is in our online directory. Jen was employed at Golden Living Center before starting training in late March. She is currently on maternity leave until mid-July or thereabouts.
Sarah Janssen will be our new Administrative Assistant beginning June 1. She will work Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
