Meet some of the people of Tillicoultry Baptist Church.
My name is Dee Jess & I love Jesus!
I am one of the leaders here at Tillicoultry Baptist Church. I am married to Hyeyoung & we have three wee offspring. My background is in education, counselling, pastoral work & missions.
I graduated from Spurgeon’s College in 2011 & served with the Baptist Missionary Society for a decade in North East Asia.
I was born & raised in South London. My parents moved to the UK from the sunny island of Jamaica in the 1950’s. My conversion & call to missions happened simultaneously, when I was 17 years old. I trained & worked with Youth With A Mission New Zealand many moons ago & also served as a youth minister in London for three years.
I am passionate about the gospel, which is essentially good news for sinners like me, through the finished work of Jesus 1 Tim. 1:12-15.
I enjoy good conversations, great movies, grand coffee & the glorious Scottish countryside!
Elder • Secretary
I re-joined the leadership team and took on the role of Secretary in June 2021. I’m involved with the Forth Valley CAP Debt Centre and promoting the CAP Money Course locally. I love spending time with my grown-up kids and grandchildren, sailing and taking short breaks around the country in my VW campervan.
I have been part of the leadership team since the end of 2019 and have helped run the Monday Ladies Bible Study/Life Group for the last 17 years. I’m married to Robert and have 3 grown up sons. Since retiring from nursing, I enjoy spending my time meeting friends for coffee and walking our dog.
My passion lies with engaging with communities and street work. With a background of volunteering for the Bethany Christian Trust’s care van and leading a team of Street Pastors in Stirling, I currently support a Christian motorbike group, Road Riders for Jesus, and coordinate the local flood group.
Elder • Worship
I am part of the leadership team with a particular interest in the gathered worship life of the church. I love connecting with God and others through music and words. When I grow up I want to be a writer, but at the moment I’m juggling family life and work as a GP.
Elder • Pastoral Care
I enjoy using technology and at church this involves serving at the sound desk or cameras and taking care of our website and social media. I love ensuring our church family are cared for. I enjoy spending time with my family and getting out on my wheelchair with my dog.
Elder • Treasurer
I am part of the leadership team with responsibility for finance. Music is a particular love of mine and I enjoy playing with the others in the worship team. Outside church I spend many hours “taxiing” children to work, friends and football training…and occasionally manage to do some real work as a solicitor.
