Virginia Smith

Ministry Assistant

My Family:
I married my wonderful husband Steve in 1998. We met when both of us were working at GTE. We dated for 6 six years before getting married.

My Story:
My parents believed in Jesus but we only went to Church sporadically when I was a child. When I was in second grade, I was invited to Cliff Temple Baptist Church by a friend at school. I loved going to Church and went multiple times a week (Bible Study, Church, Choir Practice, Wednesday evenings, Sunday Training Union, Church camp, etc). This is where I met Jesus and accepted Him as Lord and Savior and was Baptized. Jesus has always been there for me, even when I wandered, He would draw me back in.

Something Most People Don’t Know:
God placed two special women in my life that encouraged me and helped me grow in my faith. When I was in 4thgrade, I had a teacher with the exact same first and last name as mine. She became a special mentor to me. Around the same time, I had a Bible Study teacher that not only taught the scriptures, but she gave me books that helped me find that personal relationship with Jesus.

My Trademark Expression:
Please clean this stuff up!

Besides the Bible, my recommended reading would be:
The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren

I’m Most Excited About:
Learning more about Jesus and living to please Him
