Rachel Sherron

Minister of Children and Families

Rachel began her ministry at FBCSSI in September 2019. Previously she served in children’s ministry at Northside Drive Baptist Church in Atlanta, then at FBC in Clinton, TN. Rachel is from Paducah, Kentucky, and grew up in Immanuel Baptist Church.

At Campbellsville, Rachel majored in Biblical Studies and English. She loves studying scripture and discovering layers of meaning within. Rachel enjoys spending time outside, witnessing beauty in creation. She also enjoys cooking, exercising, and reading. One of her all-time favorite books is The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett.

Rachel is passionate about teaching children about God’s love. She hopes that children ask big questions about God, church, and scripture while learning what being a Christ-follower looks like in day-to-day life.
