Alexis joined the staff at Wrenn Memorial Baptist Church in November of 2013. Alexis and her husband Steve have been members for over 32 years. During that time Alexis has served in

the roles of Deacon’s wife, junior camp, youth camp leader, VBS teacher, co-director of WMU, Awana leader, and currently church secretary. She has been married to the love of her life, Steve since 1969. They enjoy spending time with their sons Steve Jr. and Jason and are very proud of the individuals they are becoming. She and Steve have six grandchildren, who bring much joy and happiness to the family. She enjoys every minute she gets to be with them. 

Shortly after her marriage to Steve, it was clear that she had married into a Christian family and she realized that a relationship with God was what she needed. In December 1972 she accepted Christ as her personal Savior at David Street Baptist Church. Alexis feels that God has richly blessed her and she is most grateful for her salvation, her family, and her church family.
