beverly stuart, ministry assistant

Beverly began serving in the FBC office in 1990. As the "face" and "voice" of the church, her approach to the position is as a ministry to people rather than simply a clerical responsibility. She understands that when we serve others we are really serving the Savior and counts it as an honor and privilege to minister to the saints of God. Proverbs 3:5-6 is a text that has guided her walk with Christ. Beverly and Tom have two children and four grandchildren.
