This Sunday, July 18, we will continue to celebrate voices from the past in our worship with guest proclaimer Clista Adkins and guest soloist (and choir director) Glen Adkins, both of whom were former First Baptist Greenville staff members. In the mid-90s, Clista served as Minister to Single Adults, and from 1992-2007, Glen served as Minister of Music and Worship.
Clista received her undergraduate education at Louisiana Tech, and Glen received his at Furman University. They both attended Southern Seminary with Clista receiving a Master of Divinity degree and Glen a Master and Doctorate of Musical Arts. They left First Baptist Greenville in 2007 to become Cooperative Baptist Fellowship missionaries to the Roma people in Hungary where they served until 2010.
They now live in Shreveport, Louisiana, where Clista retired as Minister of Discipleship at First Baptist Church and Glen continues to serve as Minister of Music and Administration. They have two adult daughters, Mary Adkins Richter and Katie Beth Ongena, and three grandsons.
Make plans to attend!
