Children's Director

Verna Culver

As a young child and teenager I attended the First Baptist Church in Ramona, Ok. I received Jesus as my  Savior when I was 10 years old during the spring revival. Even though my salvation was during the revival, my Sunday school teacher was the person that led me to the Lord. Then, Easter Sunday night, my father, my oldest brother and I were all baptized.

I have been blessed with 3 children, Eric of Little Rock, AR, Cara Beth of Tonkawa, OK, and Joey of Blackwell, OK. I have 6 grandchildren which are the joy of my life. They keep Grandma busy going to softball games and just spending time together.

I have been a public school teacher for 30 years. My last employment was teaching kindergarten for 26 years for Pawnee Public School.  I was Preschool Director at First Baptist Church in Miami, OK in 1980. In 1981 I attended a conference at Glorietta, New Mexico and at that time I realized that God was calling me to minister to young children. Upon returning to Miami, I continued as the Preschool Director and conducted a Preschool Program at my home. In 2001, I was called to be the Children’s Director here at Pawnee First Baptist Church.

Our Children’s Division strives to provide opportunities for children, grades 1st – 5th, to be taught the Word of God and Bible Truths. We want to show Jesus’ love and have fun.


Teach a child about the ways he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.
Proverbs 22:6
