Cheri Cortez, Worship & Youth Pastor
Cheri grew up in small-town North Dakota. She graduated from Trinity Bible College and received her credentials in 2001. She met and married her husband, Shawn, in 2002. Their son, Torin, was born in 2011.

Since receiving her credentials, Cheri has ministered as a College/Career Pastor and Associate/Worship Pastor in churches in South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming and North Dakota. She also worked in Public Relations at Southwestern Assemblies of God University in Waxahachie, TX, while Shawn finished his degree.

Her desire is to see lives transformed by the power of the gospel and for Jesus to be lifted up at BCF, in our homes, and wherever He leads us. She leads worship with a heart for His people to encounter Him, and to give Him the praise and the worship due His wonderful name.

She enjoys visiting zoos and aquariums with her family, reading, and playing the piano.
