Marilyn Shafer - Kitchen Coordinator
Having come to know the Lord at an early age through the example and teaching of godly parents, Marilyn became interested in ministering to others as a teenager. Over the years, she has not only been involved in church ministry but also in Christian camp and conference center ministries. Whether it was through the avenue of music, teaching children or in some role of administration, her desire has been to see others come to know the Lord or strengthened in their walk with Him.
Since coming to FBC over 13 years ago, Marilyn has seen her desire to serve others fulfilled as she's sung in the choir, helped her husband as he taught a Life Group, or volunteered to help in the kitchen. She was instrumental in the formation of the wedding policies at FBC and has been the church Wedding Coordinator/Director ever since. For the past 10 years, Marilyn has been the church Kitchen Coordinator, a position requiring oversight and involvement of food related events, as well as the purchasing of products related to these activities.
Marilyn is a graduate of Ben Lippen High School (Asheville, NC, location) and Columbia Bible College (presently known as Columbia International University - CIU). She and her husband Herb have 2 grown children and are members of the JOY Life Group.
