Here at First Baptist, music is a major way that we praise and worship our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! On any given Sunday, we use a variety of instruments, everything from the organ and violin to guitar and drums. If you are musically gifted and desire to use your talents to bring glory to the Lord in worship, we want to get you plugged in!

 1. Worship Choir 

 2. Composer's Weekend

I became interested in music while talking piano, voice, and cello lessons each week as my father studied music at Southern Seminary.


I have a music education degree from Austin Peay, a church music degree from Kentucky Wesleyan College, and a church music master's from Southern Seminary. Later in life, I felt a calling to public education and returned to school for a degree in curriculum and instruction. I am also certified as a principal in the state of Tennessee.


I've also held church positions in Hopkinsville from 1981-1986 and Cadiz from 1986-2015. I joined FBC in June of 2016.


I live on Lake Barkley with my two companions: Bullet and Phyllis.
