Amanda Watkins

Children's Director


Amanda has been a member of First Baptist Dover since 1996. She came on staff in 2017 as Director of Children’s Ministries after directing Vacation Bible School and teaching music in our IMPACT Children’s Choir. Amanda and her husband Dustin have been married since 2011 and both grew up at First Baptist Dover. Amanda graduated from the University of Florida in 2013 with intentions of working in the landscape industry, but God had better plans. Amanda loves reading, singing, finding a good deal, all our children at church , and her many volunteers who help teach and minister to these children. She loves being creative with lessons, activities, and crafts for the kids, finding new activities and programs that benefit children and families together, and watching kids grow spiritually in their walk with the Lord. Her life verse is Isaiah 40:29-31 “He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”
