Claudia has been the Ministry Assistant at Immanuel Baptist Church since its constitution in January 2004 and has training credentials through the Southern Baptist Convention as a certified Ministry Assistant. She feels very excited and privileged to serve and use her gifts alongside the family at Immanuel. There is never a day that is the same in this ministry position and considers it a joy to serve the Lord here! My husband, Bennett, currently serves as a church treasurer, and together they have three grown children and five grandchildren.
Claudia also serves IBC as a volunteer in several ministry areas. Having been involved in the student ministry, she is excited to see that ministry grow under the guidance of our Associate Pastor to Students & Famiies. Vacation Bible School is another passion to see children excited to learn that Jesus loves them.
