We officially welcome Billy Roberts to the First Baptist staff today, Monday, July 13, as Interim Youth Pastor. Billy will be working with Leanna Coyle-Carr during the next two weeks to transition responsibilities for the youth program. That transition will culminate with Billy leading the youth on retreat to Panama City July 24-27. Our thoughts will be with Leanna and Aaron as they travel to Illinois that weekend for the funeral of Aaron’s grandmother.
Billy is no stranger to First Baptist Decatur. His experience as FBCD Summer Youth Ministries Coordinator in 2012 will serve him well as he connects with the youth and their families. Billy and wife Katie are active members of the Second Cup Sunday morning small group and both serve on the Fresh Start Liturgy Planning Team. Billy also coordinates the Fresh Start Tech Team.
If you have not met Billy, Katie and Sam (9 months old), please make a point to introduce yourself. We are grateful for Billy’s commitment to First Baptist and look forward to his ministry and to how it will impact the youth, First Baptist Church Decatur, and our community.
