Amanda is a pastor's wife, and her husband pastors Watauga Baptist Church. Her father, Raymond Spann, is the pastor of Grandview Park Baptist Church. She is a graduate of Appalachian State University. She taught eleven years in the public school system before coming to the association. Amanda enjoys spending time with her family, cooking, and reading. Amanda is grateful for the opportunity to serve Caldwell Baptist.
Darlene has served with the Caldwell Baptist Association for twenty-five years and will be retiring October 27, 2023. She is married to David and they have a dog named Emmy. She is a member of Yadkin Baptist Church and is the church pianist. She also teaches an adult Sunday School class and is the Media Library Director for her church. She enjoys hiking the state parks, working out at the gym and vacationing at the coast. Darlene has mixed feelings about retiring because she has made so many dear friends while serving the association. She plans to keep attending events so that she can stay in touch. Thank you Caldwell Baptists for your encouragement, support, and love through the years.
