Emily Kerr
Minister of Children
Emily Kerr was born in Texas, as the daughter of a children’s pastor. As she volunteered in the church alongside her family, she developed a passion for children’s ministry. While completing her bachelor’s degree in elementary education at Texas A&M University, she volunteered in the college and children’s ministries at her local church. After graduating from Texas A&M, she began her career as a children’s minister at Grace Bible Church in College Station, Texas. During her time there, she completed a master’s degree in Christian Education at Dallas Theological Seminary.

In August 2018, Emily married her college sweetheart Travis Kerr and moved to Madison, Alabama where Travis works as an aerospace engineer. Very soon after arriving in Madison, she heard about First Baptist Church and was honored to begin a new children’s ministry position there. Emily loves teaching kids about the love and joy found in a relationship with Jesus Christ, and she is passionate about encouraging parents to use their role as the primary spiritual influencers of their children. In addition to her husband and children’s ministry, Emily loves chocolate, hiking, and spending time with sweet friends.
