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.


Emily Sedate (College Associate)

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.

Caleb Whitten (College Associate)

Caleb is currently a senior Religion major at Baylor University, and helps out with the Baptist Student Ministry on campus. He’s from McKinney, TX, where his appreciation of Dr. Pepper and Mario Kart was born (an appreciation that has flourished in college). Caleb loves a good pun, reading thought provoking books, and movie marathons. He is passionate about youth ministry, and hopes to pursue his calling to that field after graduation.
