Minister to Children
Leigh Halverson- Minister to Children
Leigh was born and raised in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Prior to serving in Jefferson City, Leigh served with the youth ministry at First Baptist Church in Winston-Salem, North Carolina and the children ministries at St. Mark’s Church in Burlington, North Carolina, Terry P. Moncrief Baptist Center for Ministry in Atlanta, Georgia, and Northeast Baptist Church in Atlanta, Georgia. These experiences clarified the call God placed in Leigh’s heart to serve God through serving children and their families. Leigh graduated in 2008 from McAfee School of Theology in Atlanta, GA. She is excited about the opportunity to partner with the First Baptist Church congregation in establishing a strong foundation of faith in the lives of children.
