Meet Our Staff

Keri Denbow

Director of Children's Ministries

Keri grew up in Chester County and currently resides in Henderson with her husband, Wesley. They have two kids, son Logan and daughter Jordan, who are active in the Youth and Children’s Ministries at FBC. When possible she loves to have her step-daughter, Miriah and grandson Beau over.

She has been serving FBC as Director of Children’s Ministries since November 2016. She loves teaching the kids the word of God thru fun bible stories, crafts and even food.  The kids love making a snack to go along with their lesson!

Cameron Miller

Music Director

Cameron grew up just down the road in Selmer, TN. He has been attending church all his life and has been serving God through music since he was a student. Cameron has a bachelor’s degree in music and has been leading worship at FBC since 2012. He loves to challenge the praise choir to learn new material.

Something about Cameron many are unaware is we always feel safe when he is around because of his second degree black belt in Taekwondo. One morning before worship, Cameron was showing off his skills and kicked Bro. Brad in the head so hard and fast that we got out of service early!


We are currently seeking God’s direction as we prayerfully begin the search for a new youth leader!
