Michelle has been a part of Bayou Blue Assembly since she was 3 years old and has been on staff since January 2018 as our Website Manager and Event Coordinator. God has blessed her with amazing parents, Gary and Connie DeRoche who has lived a life of service to the Lord. This taught her to serve as well.
She gave her heart to the Lord at a very young age and has always been steadfast in pursing God and passionate about serving Him. She was filled with the Holy Spirit at age 11 while attending church Kids camp. Michelle said she always knew she had been called to ministry. In September 2020, Michelle’s role in our staff switched to Children’s Pastor.
Each week Mrs. Guidry is involved in many areas of ministry and service, including Children’s Pastor, Co-worship Leader in the main sanctuary, Fine Arts Co-coordinator and Coach. She knows that God has placed a burden on her life to help students discover their calling and gifting’s, develop those gifts through mentoring and then watch as they are placed into ministry to serve as they have been taught.
Michelle loves serving in ministry with her husband, Justin, who she met in 2003 at Bayou Blue’s new building celebration service. They married in 2010 and within a few years they had their daughter Lileigh and a son Liam. They love to hang out with family and friends, swim, BBQ and ride the go-cart. Together they served in our Unstoppable Student Ministry for ten years prior to taking over the Children’s Ministry Department. As a family they volunteer every week and strive to be the hands and feet of Jesus.
With her amazing and silly personality, she definitely makes everyone laugh. She has many talents, loves to be crafty, plan events and actually enjoys organizing. Michelle claims to be a stay-at-home mom but she puts countless hours into ministry, while also working part-time as the Children’s Director. She is passionate about God and loves to worship wherever she goes. Her prayer is that through worship, we can touch the heart of God and Heaven can invade earth!
