Jessie Banks - Youth Pastor

I was raised around the Somerville area. I attended Athens State University and received a degree in English Language Arts with a certificate in Secondary Education and I am currently working on a Masters of Divinity from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.

In August of 2014, Jessica and I took the job as the Ministers to Children at Shiloh Baptist Church. We have loved every minute since! Recently we transitioned this role where I will be responsible for the Children's Ministry and Jessica takes a support role as Children's Activity & Events Director. We pray that your child will feel at home the minute they walk into our church. We seek to provide developmentally appropriate teaching in a kid-friendly, nurturing environment.

Charles Owens II ... Worship Pastor

My name is Charles Owens II. Feel free to call me "CO2." I'm honored to be the worship pastor of Shiloh Baptist Church. I have been involved with the music ministry at Shiloh since 2006, and I absolutely love it! I'm married to my wonderful wife Meghan, and we have 3 children: Marlee, Chais, and Maggie. We currently live in Hartselle and try to live our lives to the fullest for the glory of Jesus Christ.

I have a BS in CIS from St. Leo University, a Christian Apologetics Certification from Biola University, and I'm currently pursuing Worship Leadership studies at Samford University.

When I'm not working, leading worship, or recording music, I love spending time with my family, teaching martial arts, and trying new things. I look forward to meeting you at Shiloh Baptist Church very soon.
