Brian became our Minister of Music on July 15th 2011. Brian came from Coker Baptist Church where he spent five years of service in the music ministry. Before serving at Coker Baptist he served at Rosedale Baptist in Tuscaloosa for 17 years. Brian’s philosophy for ministry is: “Before you can be a good staff member you have to be a good church member.” Brian, his wife, Lori, and son, Daniel, have gotten involved in every church where God has called them, serving as Sunday School Teachers, a Deacon, and serving in the kitchen and hospital visitation. Brian and his family believe that God gives them abilities to use for His glory. Brian is excited about working with our choir, youth, children, and individuals preparing hearts for worship each service.
The best thing about Brian is his wife, Lori. When telling the church at Coker about God calling them to Carrolls Creek, several said that they could have Brian, but Lori needed to stay. Lori is a Prayer Warrior for the Lord. She is also a great cook, and has a tender heart for those in trouble. Brian’s son, Daniel, began serving the Lord at Rosedale helping with the sound system and singing in the choir. He taught a children’s class at Coker, and was a chaperone and leader in the Youth Ministry. Please pray for Brian and his family as they serve here at Carrolls Creek Baptist Church!
