Michelle Penrod


Michelle was born and raised in a Catholic family in O’Fallon, Missouri.  She moved with her family to the Swansboro area in December 1987.  After attending several area churches, she visited First Baptist and knew that she had “come home” and became a member in 1999.  Michelle was hired as our caretaker in 2000.  Her love for the Lord and this church is evident in her care of our facility and its members.  She served her country in the Army Reserves for 6 years and has been a volunteer firefighter for 23 years.  Michelle loves helping people in any way she can.  For enjoyment she enjoys refinishing furniture, painting and spoiling her five grandchildren.  Michelle and her husband, Bob, have been married for 30 years.
