  • Stacie Elwood - Children's Director  (843) 873-4191

    I am truly blessed to have the great opportunity to serve as Children's Director at FBCJ. My family ties to this church date back over 50 years; however it wasn't until July 2005 that FBCJ became my church family when I finally decided to follow Jesus! In 2008, God led me to a high school teaching position and continues to open doors for me to serve in various leadership roles that always have one common denominator - young people! What better way to refresh your spirit than working with energetic, eager, and genuine children as they learn and apply biblical truths!
