Marie began as Children's Minister and Preschool Director of First Baptist Church in July of 1997. She was returning to her roots at FBC, Buffalo since this was where she was born and lived until going away to college. Marie has relished the challenge of ministering and growing in a place that is so close to her heart.
Marie completed her undergraduate degree in Agriculture and Speech Communications at East Texas State University. She met her husband, RC while serving as a youth intern at Bannockburn Baptist Church in Austin.
Once married, Marie went on to complete her Masters Degree in Religious Education at Southwestern
Seminary in Fort Worth and RC completed his teacher certification. They served at Meadowview Baptist Church, Midlothian during this time before coming to Buffalo.
Marie, RC and their two children, Ben and Mollie, are active in their community and Buffalo ISD where RC teaches 5th grade. They enjoy spending time with their extended family and Marie loves scrapbooking those special moments. She feels so blessed to be able to impact the lives of children
and their families for Christ!!
