First Lady Evelyn R. Kay
Loving Wife | Mother | Educator | Spiritual Advisor | Blogger


Mrs. Kay is very passionate about Christian discipleship, and she provides leadership to programs supporting our youth and young adult education; so much so, that she personally ‘greets’ each youth individually attending Saturday Church School.    


She faithfully supports women’s initiatives to empower mind, body and spiritual development; and leads outreach programs to serve our communities in Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia, including one of our most popular annual events – our Missions Blitz campaign. Also, Mrs. Kay serves in the Marketing Communication Ministry leading our social media campaign on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. She actively manages the postings of relevant materials to appeal to multi-generational social media users, to promote spiritual growth and development. She is also a leader in “Leading and Loving It”, a national support group for Pastors’ wives and women leaders in ministry. Mrs. Kay also supports the National Campaign for Breast Cancer Awareness.
Originally from Edwardsville, VA, Mrs. Kay earned her undergraduate degree from Virginia Wesleyan College, and a Master’s Degree in Education from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. She is happily married for almost 20 years to her best friend, Pastor of The First Baptist Church, Inc. of North Brentwood, Rev. Dr. Duane T. Kay, and together they are raising four beautiful God-fearing children that they affectionately call “the Special Kays” or the “Kay Cubs.” As a wife and mother of four, Mrs. Kay is an inspiration and guiding light to women balancing work, family and making time to faithfully serve God and study His word. 

Mrs. Kay states that she never stops being amazed by the warm, compassionate, generous, loving and inclusive spirit of the FBCNB family, and how all generations are embraced for their unique contributions and gifts.
