Carrie Pearson, Children’s Ministry Coordinator
My name is Carrie Pearson and I will be joining Betsy D’Errico as Co-Coordinator of Children’s Ministry at Faith Baptist Church. I grew up in Glenville, New York where I became a Christian as a preschooler attending East Glenville Community Church. I was very active in my church’s youth and teen ministries serving seven summers with Children’s Sand and Surf Mission in Ocean City, New Jersey.
I attended The Newhouse School at Syracuse University where I received a Bachelor of Science in Broadcast Journalism. During my first career as a morning anchor, producer and reporter in Northern Maine, I recommitted my life to Christ.
By God’s leading, I left journalism and received a Master’s of Science in Elementary Education from The College of Saint Rose and began pursuing my passion for working with children. I love to teach! It is an amazing moment when a child puts all of the pieces together and understands something new for the very first time. I have had the opportunity to teach in three states and many classrooms.
I met my husband, John, at a mutual friend’s wedding and have been married over 10 years. John and I have two daughters, Emily and Abby. Our girls were born in Arizona and experienced their first snowfall after moving to upstate New York three years ago.
I love serving the Lord! Children are the lights that shine into the homes of friends and family, school classrooms, and neighborhoods. I am looking forward to partnering with the families of Faith Baptist Church as we work together to equip and train the children of FaithKids.
