A Family of Faith
Welcome to the family of Coral Hill Baptist Church. We are a family of faith whose hope is centered on the Lord Jesus and whose trust is rooted in the certainty of God's Word. We are a family of friends that care about and for one another. We are a family of fellow pilgrims learning to grow in grace together along the journey of life. Like many families, we have experienced seasons of joy and sorrow, but through it all God has proven Himself to be faithful.
-Pastor Ray Woodie
Saved by the grace of God at age seventeen, began pastoring at nineteen, married at twenty years of age, and all these many years later he is still saved by the grace of God. The journey of faith has been marked with many mountains and valleys but the single constant has been the faithfulness of the Savior to walk with him and often carry him through the most treacherous and difficult passages of life. He knows that there are other mountains to climb and valleys to traverse, but the One who has brought him safe thus far, will certainly be able to carry him all the way home. He welcomes you to join us at Coral Hill on the journey so that we can help one another and together bring glory to the Lord Jesus.

Youth Pastor/Director of Media
Investing into the lives of students was something that he was called to in January of 2007. His heart has always been for youth and their journey through this world. Andy's testimony of faith goes back to high school when he was fifteen where God saved him in his back yard, and has continued to guide him ever since. As he has grown he has met new people and continued to grow in his faith, learning more and more that Christianity is not just on a Sunday or a Wednesday, but that it is a complete surrender of one's life to Christ. In 2009, He married the love of his life, Chelsea and has two children; Matthew and Evelyn who both love a good game of hide and seek and pizza!

Terry & Kelli Barrett
Throughout life, Terry and Kelli have always loved children. When they joined Coral Hill Baptist, they knew God would use them to serve Him. They are extremely thankful God opened the door of opportunity and spoke to their hearts leading them into the children’s ministry as TeamKid directors. It is their desire to spend the days God gives them serving Him…their Creator, their Savior, and their Lord. Terry also participates in the men’s ministry and the first impression ministry. In addition, Kelli actively participates in the worship ministry, first impression ministry, and vacation Bible school. Terry and Kelli are married and reside in the Coral Hill area.
