Welcome, Summer Interns!
Ashley Norwood will focus on our preschool programs and youngest children this summer during Splash, VBS, VBS Plus, Parents Day Out, Wednesday evenings, Sunday School, Music Arts Camp, and MAC Field Trips. She is a rising Junior at Maryville College with a major in music education and a minor in psychology. She would love to one day be a music therapist at the Vanderbilt Children's Hospital. She grew up at First Baptist Nashville and served as a teen in VBS and Thrilling Thursdays, and she worked with children during her senior mission trip to Haiti. She trusted Jesus as Savior at the age of seven. She loves to read, and her favorite color is pink.
CJ (Carol Jean) Roddy will focus on our children and preteen programs this summer during Splash, VBS, VBS Plus, Thrilling Thursdays, Wednesday evenings, Sunday School, Music Arts Camp, and MAC Field Trips. She is a rising Senior at Tennessee Tech University majoring in Wildlife and Fisheries with a concentration in Fisheries Science. She would love to one day work at the Tennessee Aquarium. She grew up at Springfield Baptist Church and served as a teen in VBS (while I was Children's Minister), and she worked with children during her summers at Mission Fuge camps. She trusted Jesus as Savior at the age of five, was baptized at the age of seven, and rededicated her life to Christ in high School. CJ loves animals and plays the saxophone, clarinet, and a little guitar.
