Brent is a local kid, from Arlington, Tx. God revealed His call to career ministry on his life as a fourteen year old at youth camp, and he pursued that call until he was twenty-one. At that time, he resigned a position with a youth ministry at First Baptist Church in Wichita Falls to finish his college degree and chase a career in television. After attempting to find his place at KJTL – FOX18 in Wichita Falls and KTVT – CBS11 in DFW, he realized that his joy was only going to come from fulfilling what God had created him to do – serve Him with his life and career. Brent has served as a youth pastor, groups pastor, and lead pastor for over 20 years, and has a real passion for seeing people draw closer to Christ and experience God’s freedom and forgiveness.
Prior to Southlake Baptist, he and his wife Ashley, who you will often see bouncing on stage in passionate worship, planted a church in Far North Ft Worth. Southlake Baptist sponsored that church plant, Restoration Church, so it was a very comfortable transition when they joined our staff in January of 2017.
