Sherri has been keeping us all organized since 2007. Prior to becoming our Administrative Assistant, Sherri worked as a secretary in a dialysis unit, and for ten years, she was a travel agent. She says that the best part about her role is when people call into the office and she can take the time to listen. Sherri is married to Jeff, who serves on our Security Team and works at AC McCartney in Watage. Their daughter, Alissa, graduated from the University of Iowa and is now at the University of Evansville, IN studying to be a Physician Assistant. Together with their two spoiled puppies, Jeff and Sherri are exploring a new season of life as empty-nesters where they enjoy shooting, dining out, exercising, and shopping. Her favorite movies include, The Holiday, How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days, and Sweet Home Alabama.
Dorothy has enjoyed serving at FBC ever since relocating from the east coast back home to the prairie 12 years ago. Born in Galesburg and growing up in Indiana, she earned a BS degree in Educational Services at the U. of Evansville, IN, worked in libraries and then became an Insurance agent in 2009. Dorothy's favorite thing about her job as Teaching Pastor is having the opportunity to connect with all the people God brings across her path to encourage as well as to learn from. Dorothy is so proud of her three grown children and loves it when they call or text. Her hobbies include reading, doing projects around the house, and being out in nature. Her favorite movies include Spirited Away, Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark, and The Spy Next Door.
Eric has been volunteering at FBC since 2013, and joined our staff in 2018 as an intern, and became full time in 2019. He is a graduate of Knox College with a degree in education. Eric is recently married (June 2018) and his wife, Aly, joins him in his work with the children. His favorite thing about his job as the Pastor of Discipleship is the enthusiasm kids bring when it comes to loving and learning about God. Along with teaching and ministry, Eric enjoys coaching and competing in wrestling, beating Aly in tennis, and finding new things to learn about. His favorite movies include Jurassic Park, Remember the Titans, and Guardians of the Galaxy.
Huey began his role at FBC in September 2019. Our youngest staff member, he was only 3 months old when he started! You are never too young to start serving the Lord. No matter what kind of mood you are in, Huey is always happy to see you, ready to greet you and roll over so you can rub his belly. He is very committed to the emotional well-being of everyone he meets. His favorite things include sticks, walks with Aunt Sherri, sneaking into Pastor Bob's office, and whatever you happen to be eating right now.
