Secretary/Treasurer & Children’s Minister

Crystal Foster began as children’s ministry director and church secretary at Kennedy Baptist Church in November 2016.   Although Crystal had worked with the children’s ministry for several years, it wasn’t until she was saved at the age of 42 that the Lord put a true calling on her heart.   As the Lord worked through the leadership at KBC, a position was formed that combined the secretary and children’s ministry director, which was a perfect fit for Crystal. “It is amazing to see the Lord work things out before your eyes,” said Crystal.  “The Lord called me to children’s ministry, but He also allowed my secular work experience to fill the need as church secretary.”

Kidstown is the name of the children’s ministry at Kennedy Baptist church for ages birth through sixth grade.  The development of Kidstown is the vision of the KBC children’s ministry team to lay a spiritual foundation and help our children grow in their relationship with Christ.  The Kidstown motto is “Growing God’s Kingdom One Kid at a Time.” The focus verse is Matthew 19:14 ~ But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven.”

Bio: Crystal married her high school sweetheart, Scott, in 1989. They have two grown children, Erin (Chase) Landrum and Zach (Grace) Foster.  Erin and Chase live in Starkville, Miss., and Zach and Grace live in Steens, Miss.  Crystal enjoys spending time with her family, reading and going antiquing. Her favorite verse is Joshua 1:9 ~ “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
