In October 2012, Cheryl joined the BSCNC as senior consultant for childhood ministries. Previously she served 17 years as a children’s minister at Eastern Hills Baptist in Charlotte and First Baptist Church in Matthews overseeing preschool and children’s ministries. She received her bachelor’s degree in 1978 and master’s degree in Christian education in 1998 from Pfeiffer University.
Cheryl’s favorite part of ministry is seeing the light go on in a child’s eyes as they discover a new truth about the greatness of God. She enjoys seeing a children’s leader more fully understand how important their role is in a child’s spiritual life.
She has been married to Curtis 31 years and they have two children, Matthew and Leanne; a son-in law, James; and one granddaughter, Hannah. Curt and Cheryl are members of Salem Baptist Church in Apex.
