Edna Harris, Music Director/Organist

Edna joined First Baptist as Music Director/Organist in January 2007. Her duties at First Baptist include directing the chancel choir and the adult handbell choir, as well as playing organ and piano for worship service. She enjoys accompanying and working with all types of musical groups. Her goal is to help develop the musical abilities of those who attend First Baptist.

Nicole Brown, Secretary

Nicole Brown joined us in April as our church secretary, and, boy, are we glad she’s here! She looked around and saw what needed to be done, rolled up her sleeves, and jumped in. Nicole is kind, caring, capable and fun; you’re going to really appreciate her. Nicole has lived in the Jackson area all of her life. She is a young mother of four children. After working full-time in a previous secretarial position for several years, she is excited to join our team, as our limited office hours allow her more time for her children. Nicole and her family are members of Grace Church. Please stop by to introduce yourself so she can start putting faces with names.
