Lynda Russell, Ministry Assistant

Lynda has been a part of the church her entire life.  Having served as a Women on Mission group leader and as a volunteer on missions trips with the NC Baptist Men, and having worked with every age range from PreK (Mission Friends) to Youth, she has a good understanding of the potential Baptist churches have to reach the world for Christ.  Her passion for the teachings of the church is with Children and Youth Bible Drills, where she feels she has learned more than she taught.  Lynda graduated from Appalachian State University with a degree in Accounting.  She and her husband have five grown sons.  She began work at Coggins Memorial in October of 2014 and enjoys being a part of this church family as a member of the support staff.
