Lisa Salinas, Lisa-Ramon-SalinasChildren’s Director
 
Our goal at FBC Murphy is to provide fun and interactive programs that are filled with Christian values and God’s Word to inspire children to GROW in their relationship with Jesus Christ, learning to WORSHIP, to SERVE and SHARE Christ in the world!
 
John 13:34 – 35 “A new command I give to you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
 
Teaching children God’s unconditional love and compassion will give them the foundation to grow in their faith and become His disciples and build meaningful relationships with others!
 
I have special memories of attending church when I was a little girl, I would sometimes go with my parents or grandparents, or many times I rode the church bus. Even though my life was full of ups and downs, I knew church was always a great place to be with others. When I became a mom it was even more important to guide my family to focus on God, so I dove into many different roles – baby nursery, teaching Sunday school, AWANA, VBS, Ladies Ministry and working as the Assistant Director in a thriving Mother’s Day Out/Preschool/Kindergarten. Along the way God was leading me to a deeper faith and service to Him. Growing up we didn’t have all of the great programs offered today, so my very first summer camp experience was as a leader at Camp GAP in 2001; I just sat there humbled by the whole experience. It was so exciting to see children worshipping together, learning God’s word in a fun-filled environment. I was overjoyed by the whole experience; during the evening Worship Service God called me to serve full-time in the Children’s Ministry.
 
Lisa and Ramon have been married for 25 years, they love spending time with family, blessed to be grandparents, and love serving in ministry together.
 

Matthew 28:19 – 20 “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

For most people contacting the church, Lorri is the “face and voice of FBC Murphy”, she sees her position as a place to serve, support and love God, her fellow staff members, the congregation and the community. She trusts God has and will always equip her for His purposes and plan for her life.

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the
