SAYYES! Ministry Staff

We are excited to serve God with you! It is our joy to be in ministry to the community of Sedalia and Pettis County. Please let us know how we can help!

  • Becky Rayl


    Becky has been our secretary since 1991. A native of Sedalia, she has lived the past 36 years in rural Hughesville. She is married to Lyn Rayl, and they have two sons, Brad (married to Lyndsi) and Brody. She also has three fabulous granddaughters! Becky feels so blessed to be working in a Christian atmosphere where she is continually meeting, growing, and learning with others on their faith journeys. Her favorite scripture is, "What time I am afraid, I will trust in Thee" Psalm 56:3. God is the "rock" on which Becky tries to focus throughout her life. She finds two Truths to be especially comforting: God has a plan for us, and God will never leave us.

  • Candace Fowler

    senior Pastor

    Candace, her husband Brian, and their children, Morgan, Carlton, Camden, Coleman and Chapman, live in Windsor. She loves to laugh and then laugh some more. Candace has been in ministry since she was 19 and has been with the First Church minstry team since 2017. Her favorite scripture is Ephesians 3:20-21 "Now to God who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to God be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen." God - Always doing more than we can fathom. Always!

  • Teyha Huffman

    Director of connections


    Tehya serves as the Director of Connections here at First Church. She loves spending time with her husband, Phillip, and with family as often as she can. One of her hobbies and passions is baking and cooking. To her, time doesn’t exist when she is in the kitchen (except for the clean-up….. that is when time slooooows down). She is so thankful and feels unbelievably blessed to be a part of the First Church Family. As Director of Connections, Tehya connects people to one another and to the different ministry opportunities available.
