Ryan Gant

Ryan came on staff in August 2019, but he is not new to Fellowship; he grew up here! As a teen he was involved in the youth group and led the youth praise band for three years. He holds two degrees from The Baptist College of Florida: Bachelor of Music in Contemporary Worship Ministry, and Master of Arts in Music and Worship Leadership. He feels that music is an incredible way to communicate with God, and that’s why he is so passionate about leading others in musical worship, because God is so worthy of our worship! He loves spending time with his family, reading, and watching all kinds of sports. Ryan and his wife Kayla are the proud parents of their sons Logan and Jonah.

Jayce Dubose

Jayce joined Fellowship’s staff in February 2017. A native of Perry, Florida, he is a graduate of the Baptist College of Florida with a BA in Ministry, and has completed half of a Masters of Divinity program concentrating in Expository Preaching at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. Jayce says, “Students have an electric passion for life that, if channeled for the gospel, can change the world. Students aren’t the future of the church; they are the Church.” He hopes that students will take ownership of their faith by being an example as Paul exhorted Timothy: “Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.” He loves coaching youth sports, working out, and running. Jayce and his wife Candice are proud to be the parents of Harrison, Chandler, Hallie, and Mila.

Katie Jones

Katie is homegrown—she grew up at Fellowship Baptist and was baptized here. A graduate of Florida State, she worked for seven years at Wee Care in various positions before becoming the director. Katie loves working with children. She says, “When I was a youth, I wanted to be in missions. But God said I didn’t need to leave Tallahassee; I needed to stay here and do His work at Wee Care.” Katie and her husband Melvin are the very proud parents of their two children, Malakai and Ava.
