I have a wonderful wife named Melissa and a 12 year old son named Jaxson.
My passions are sharing the gospel with hurting people and serving here at FBJ!
My favorite verse is Gal 5:16, I say then: Walk in the spirit and you shall not fulfill the lusts of the flesh.
Originally from Florida, Juliana has been a part of the FBJ family since 2012 and was brought on staff in 2014 after working for 6 years with WinShape Camps. She majored in Elementary Education with a minor in Bible and has found her sweet spot helping people connect and get plugged into ‘life together’ at First Baptist Jonesboro. If you are looking for a place to serve in the church, Juliana is the one to contact. She would love to talk with you and help you get connected.
Juliana is married to her handsome and talented best friend, Austin. They are the proud parents of a son and a daughter. She is bilingual and loves her family, traveling, missions, puzzles, ice cream, and cats.
Marcia grew up in First Baptist Church Jonesboro, attending with her parents, two sisters, and grandmothers. She is a graduate of Jonesboro High School, and earned a degree in Business Administration from Shorter University. After working in the business world for 25 years, the last position being a Regional Finance Director for a water/wastewater engineering firm, Marcia joined the staff at First Baptist in 2000. She is teased quite often about her love of spreadsheets. She and her husband have been married over 40 years. When not working, Marcia enjoys spending time with her family, especially with her nieces and nephews.
Her parents’ witness in her life continues through her mom’s life verse, “This is the day the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24
Our hospitality team loves serving Jesus by serving His people. My favorite verse is Colossians 3:23, “Whatever you do; do it heartily as unto the Lord.”
I am a wife, mama and Mimi to 3 awesome grandsons. When I’m not cooking, I’m elbow deep in DIY projects.
