Music Pastor- Terry Beasley
We are currently in a time of transition in the youth ministry at First Baptist Church. However, there is a full schedule of weekly activities for teens in grades seven through twelve. We have a team of dedicated teachers, parents, and student leaders who will continue to plan and provide opportunities for teenagers to worship, fellowship, minister and become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. You can learn more about current youth events at FBC by checking out our Facebook page "E3 Student Ministries".
Ministry to Youth at F.B.C.
Terry, his wife Denise, and their family moved to Cameron in the summer of 2014. After spending nineteen years as a public school teacher, principal, and school superintendent, Terry responded to God’s call to leave his career in education and seek a full-time ministry position. Terry and Denise both graduated from Southwest Baptist University in Bolivar, Missouri with degrees in Music Education. Terry also earned advanced degrees in Secondary Education and School Administration from Southwest Missouri State in Springfield, MO and a Master of Divinity Degree from Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Kansas City. Having served churches in Wichita, Kansas and Sedalia, Missouri, he brings an excitement for worship and children’s ministry to First Baptist Cameron. Denise uses her giftedness and passion for various areas of church life to extend the Beasley’s ministry in and through F.B.C. Terry and Denise have six children ranging in ages from 15 to 25. Plus, for the 2017-2018 school year the Beasleys became a host family for a foreign exchange student - Jack. In Terry’s spare time, he enjoys riding a bike and singing with the Missouri Music Men. Denise crafts stained glass pieces and teaches music in the Polo School District.
