As a college student, he interned with the Second Baptist youth ministry, teaching Sunday School, as well as assisting with summer camps and retreats. While serving as student ministry intern, God established the ABS and pre-teen ministries under Jim’s leadership. These ministries still continue to thrive at SBC today.

After salvation, she served as a youth worker, ABS leader and youth counselor at Second Baptist Church. She was employed as a Business Education teacher in Raleigh, North Carolina and in Cumming, Georgia for four years but now finds fulfillment and joy as a wife and mother of their five children: Jake, Judd, Anna Kate, Sadie Grace, and Caroline.
