The College Ministry at Brook Hills comes alongside college-age students to fulfill our purpose to love Jesus, grow in Jesus, and make disciples of Jesus. 

We do this by connecting students in the surrounding area to the local church to be trained and mobilized as lifetime disciple-makers. 

We gather together for corporate worship on Sunday mornings, we foster community around God’s Word in Community Group, we meet regularly in small groups, and we advance the gospel by sending students on mission.

We’d love to have you join us!


Worship Gatherings: As a church, we place the highest value on gathering together as a faith family to worship God through song, teaching of God’s Word, and prayer. Our worship gatherings take place at 8:00am, 9:30am, and 11:00am on Sunday mornings in the Worship Center. 

Community Group: We come together for Community Group at 11:00am on Sundays, following the 9:30am gathering. During this time we have the opportunity to fellowship together and hear teaching from God’s Word. Occasionally during the semester, we will share a meal together! 

Small Groups: In our small groups we gather together for Bible study, fellowship, prayer, and ministry. We want to create an environment where college students experience biblical fellowship and spiritual growth.

	<strong>Ministry Role & Responsibility:</strong> As the College Minister, I have the privilege of pursuing, shepherding, and discipling college-aged students (18-25) and connecting them to our ministry and faith family. We love Jesus, grow in Jesus, and make disciples of Jesus primarily through an amazing team of volunteer small group leaders. Together, we desire to reach the city of Birmingham and the world with the gospel, one student at a time.

	<strong>About Me:</strong> I’m originally from Southern California, and grew up playing indoor and beach volleyball. I graduated from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary through an online partnership with Brook Hills that brought me to Birmingham and connected me to our College Ministry. My wife of 14 years, Jeannette, and I have five children: Madison (10), Gavin (8), Damien (6), Savannah (4), and Derek (2).<br />
	<br />
	We love being outdoors as a family, doing anything from hiking and camping in the mountains, to playing sports and having fun in the sand at the beach! I have gone from playing indoor and sand volleyball for over 28 years to now coaching the next generation, including my daughter Madison!

	<strong>Interesting Fact:</strong> I grew four inches in one very painful summer, graduating from middle school at 6’1 and entering into a very awkward freshman year of high school at 6’5. When people talk about growing pains, I can TOTALLY relate!!

	<strong>Ministry Role & Responsibility: </strong>As the Associate College Minister I have the privilege to come alongside and serve college students and leaders at Brook Hills. I spend time meeting with and discipling young women as well as our female college leaders. I also help give oversight to the college ministry as a whole and help coordinate events for this ministry.
</p>

<p>
	<strong>About Me: </strong>I grew up in South Carolina and came to saving faith in high school after a friend invited me to attend church with her. From my earliest days as a follower of Christ, I had a desire to know what God’s Word had to say. I attended Clemson University (Go Tigers!) and while in college, I began to understand that I, too, could think deeply about the things of God. That sparked my love for studying the Bible and teaching it to others. 
</p>

<p>
	After teaching a women’s Bible study in my home for nearly three years, I began seminary and am working towards a degree in Biblical and Theological studies from Southern Seminary. I have a love for discipleship and coming alongside women to see their lives transformed by the gospel and grow in their love for God’s Word. 
</p>

<p>
	For fun, I enjoy a good game night, walks with a friend, iced coffee, and really anything that involves people!
