Blake Sherman

Blake Sherman (College Pastor)

Blake is a graduate of Baylor University, and currently attends George W. Truett Seminary. Blake is married to the beautiful Cara Sherman. He enjoys reading, hiking, music, and good conversation over coffee. He has had a beard for most of his life, but he’s convinced his face was made for a mustache. He worked as youth associate for five years at First Woodway before becoming the College Minister. Blake is passionate about seeing communities of believers authentically follow Christ.


Case Smith (College Intern)

Case grew up right here at First Woodway. He is graduating from Baylor University in May 2017 with a undergraduate degree in Religion. He loves working with the church and has a particular interest in Sports Ministry. He loves to spend his time outside playing sports, listening to music or reading at a coffee shop. Miraculously, he is engaged to his beautiful fiancé Danelle, who works in the Children’s Ministry at First Woodway. They plan to get married in July 2017.  Lastly, although it is under further debate, he does not believe he looks like Bryce Petty.


Emily Sedate (College Intern)

Emily is serving her second year as an intern at FWCM. She is originally from Spring, TX (home of Olympian Simone Biles, but she doesn’t know her) and now calls Waco home. Emily is pursuing a BA in Religion at Baylor and hopes to enter into full-time ministry. She loves reading, baking delicious treats to give away, and going to bed before 10pm. Emily’s all-time favorite activity is getting coffee with her wonderful friends from the college ministry.


Travis Warren (College Worship Intern)

Hailing from Dallas, Texas, Travis is the college ministry’s worship intern and leads worship for us every Sunday morning. He started his Woodway career playing acoustic guitar in the main service, but we stole him from Gary and he’s never looked back. Travis is currently a Junior at Baylor University where he is studying Corporate Communication, and he has hopes of someday turning his worship leading into a full time occupation. In his free time Travis can be found hanging out a few blocks from Baylor campus, where he lives in a house with 8 of his closest friends. Between being leading worship for us, taking classes at Baylor, and serving as a Sing Chairman for his fraternity, Travis also serves on our youth staff, where he helps lead a 737 group for high school sophomores. He is incredibly thankful for First Woodway, the opportunities it has given him, and the home it has become throughout his college years.
