And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Julie and her husband, Greg, have been married for 15 years and they have one daughter, Whitley.  Julie grew up in a Christian home where church was an important part of her childhood. She was saved at 9 years old during VBS. As she grew up, she was a part of the youth group, youth choir, and youth drama team.  Julie served as a Youth Director for several years at Salem Missionary Baptist Church in Huntington, TX where the youth deemed her “Momma J.”  

Julie has brought her energetic and upbeat personality to serve as Children’s Minister here at O’Quinn Baptist Church. Allowing children to see and experience the love of the Lord through adults that are willing to serve in Children’s Ministry is extremely important to Julie. “I want children to see and know that having a relationship with the Lord is the most important decision they can make in their life.” Proverbs 22:6 says, “Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” Julie has a passion to teach young people about Jesus Christ and His amazing gift of salvation. 

Julie’s life verse is Deuteronomy 31:6, “Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.” This verse brings her comfort in knowing that God is always with her and will never leave her.
