Interim Senior Pastor – Dr. Jim Henry
Interim Music Minister – Steve Storms
Although I was born in the great state of Texas, we only lived in Dallas for about nine months before my parents, Jim and Helen, moved to Florida. My husband, Clayton, and I met while working our way through the University of Central Florida. We both worked at Walt Disney World as trainers on Space Mountain. We also worked together at Lockheed Martin, and I taught elementary school before I was blessed to be a stay-at-home mom with our three wonderful children, Amanda, Aric and Adelyn. Amanda and her husband, Andrew live here in Central Florida and she teaches high school and he works in software support. My son, Aric and his wife, Brittany, live here as well with jobs as a technical writer and payroll support, and they have 2 young children. Our youngest daughter, Adelyn, finished her degree in Hospitality/Management and works for ADP.
I have been on the church staff for over 20 years, and always say that it’s the job I felt “called” to do. My favorite activities are singing with the choir, when time permits, and being able to interact and love on the children and families of our church.
Brett came to First Baptist Winter Park in November of 2019 to serve as the Student Pastor for middle school and high school. Before coming to Winter Park, Brett was the Managing Director of Camp BlueSky in Kenya, where he and his wife, Bronwyn, ran a Christian Camp that served students from all over the world. Originally from Memphis, Brett worked as a Regional Childcare Director for the YMCA, where he oversaw programming in three states that included before and after-school programs, summer camps, and a large teen program, to which Bronwyn brought leadership.
Bronwyn’s education background is health and fitness. She worked for the YMCA for 17 years before leaving for Kenya but has always served in ministry since their marriage in 1999. Brett also served many years with Youth for Christ as well as a Christian organization in Memphis called JIFF, that worked primarily with high risk, court-referred youth. While with this organization, he and Bronwyn also launched a program called Deep Woods Camping, where they took students on 5-7-night backpacking trips.
He and Bronwyn love the outdoors, and even hiked the entirety of the Appalachian Trail through the North American Mission Board. They believe that relational evangelism and discipleship are the keys to a successful youth ministry. They feel incredibly blessed to be a part of such a wonderful, loving church and can’t wait to see what God has planned for them and for the Power House student ministry.
Kerry is a Winter Park mom and she and her husband, Doug, have 3 boys (17, 14 and 11) that have grown up at First Baptist Winter Park and are active in our student ministry.
She has been a member of FBCWP for 19 years and started by volunteering in our children’s ministry for most of those years. She has taught children’s choir and led musicals as well as taught adult small groups during this time.
Kerry grew up in a Christian home in Mississippi with a very active children’s and student ministry. Kerry believes God has given her a passion for partnering with parents and leading children to encounter the Gospel of Jesus Christ, so that with Jesus, children and families can love God, love others, grow, and tell others about Jesus.
