Rita is new to the Shiloh Baptist Association as Ministry Assistant beginning November 1, 2021. She and husband, Richie married in 1990 and have two children; Lauren (1993) and Logan (1995) who are our blessings! Lauren is married to Jake Graves and Logan is married to Alex Culver Barber. Logan and Alex have three children, Boone (2016), Brooklyn (2019) and Bo Crockett (2021). Rita’s favorite hobby is spending time with her family and friends. She graduated from Middle Tennessee State University in 1986 with a BBA in Office Management and a Masters in Elementary Education from Freed Hardeman University in 2006. Her last 15 years have been spent teaching 3rd grade and Kindergarten at Adamsville Elementary School.
Richie and Rita became Christians at the ages of 9 and 10 respectively. Richie gave his life to the Lord on a Wednesday night in RA’s class at the West Shiloh Baptist church. Rita was saved in a Sunday morning service following a weeklong revival service at the Deerfield Baptist Church in the Lawrence County Association.
Richie serves the AFBC as deacon, assistant SS teacher, and Mission Agape teacher on Wednesday nights. Rita has served the AFBC as choir member, SS teacher, VBS teacher, Mission Agape helper, Wednesday night cooking team, and member of the Care committee.
Rita is excited for this new opportunity to serve the Lord as Ministry Assistant for the Shiloh Baptist Association. We are BETTER TOGETHER. Let her know if she can be of assistance.
