Karen Lay

Preschool Director

Born and raised in Jackson, Michigan, I accepted Jesus as my Savior at the age of 12. After graduating from high school, I attended the institute of Christian Service/Bob Jones University.

I taught second/third grade for thirteen years in a Christian School and ran my own day care for fourteen years. After moving to Florida, I taught preschool / VPK for the WEE Center, ran the day care center for New Beginnings and am currently an in-home nanny. It is a privilege to use my spiritual gifts serving the Lord in the preschool/ nursery ministry of First Baptist Church.
