First Baptist Church St. Simons Island

Rev. Rebekah White

Minister to Children & Families

Pastor Rebekah has over fifteen years of experience in congregational ministry. She came to First Baptist Church Saint Simons in 2009 as Minister to Children and Families. Rebekah’s experience with families arises out of her own context of being the middle of three girls and her growing up years and now has a family of her own. She is married to Josh White and they have a child, Luke White.

Rebekah loves running, reading, sailing, skiing and almost all outdoor activities and sports. She especially loves spending time with her family.

“My ministry philosophy is that everyone is called into a form of ministry. We are to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with our God (Micah 6:8). My passion and my call in ministry stems out of the desire to accompany children and families on their faith journey into learning what it means to walk with Christ.”
