We are the Crawford's! We have been married for 24 years, (we were married on Good Friday) and have two awesome children; Jordan - 23 and Austin - 19. Our daughter, Jordan, recently graduated from Union University with her Bachelor of Science and is currently teaching High school Biology. Our son, Austin, is a sophomore at Union University where he is obtaining his Bachelor of Nursing. We have been members of First Baptist Church since March 2011 and we have both served in various capacities from teaching Sunday school to being asked to serve as the Interim Student Ministry Leaders. I (Misti) also have been blessed to serve as the Director to Children and Families.
Steve - I was born and raised in Kennett, MO until moving to Sikeston with my family in 1999. Since joining First Baptist Church, I have had the honor to serve as a Deacon of the church since 2014. I have the pleasure to attend youth camps as a leader as well as youth leader for small group Bible studies. I have been the Upward Basketball Director since 2014 which has been a wonderful blessing to not only myself but also to the church and the lives of the players. One of my most memorable things since serving First Baptist Church is my mission trip to El Salvador.
Misti - I was raised in Campbell, MO and moved to Kennett after marrying Steve. Besides working at the church, I am also an Elementary Special Education Teaching Assistant for Sikeston Public School. I received my Certificate in Christian Ministries and my Bachelors of Religion in Christian Counseling from Liberty University. I serve as the Director to Children and Families and Upward Cheer Commissioner.
We look forward to continuing to serve our church family and community with their spiritual needs. You may contact either of us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
