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 • 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.
I’m a dad of two, and husband to Gyda. I tend to prefer a one to one chat over a crowded room, but love nothing more than finding out what makes people come alive. I connect with God best through music, and can often be found hiding behind the drum kit, as well as enjoying live music of all sorts. The best listener in our family is our scruffy terrier, so we’ll often be seen walking the hills and paths around Tilly. He has a loud bark but is very friendly so come and say hello!
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.
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.
As well as being on the leadership team, I can often be found in the music group on Sunday morning playing various instruments and leading too. I’m also involved with the sound team as well as the facilities and functions team. I’m a dad of two young girls and husband to Ruth.
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.
