SUNDAYS | 9:00AM - 10:00AM | THE TANK

We have a special time curated just for students on Sunday mornings. We believe that relationships united by The Word are important and our Sunday mornings revolve around that. We have fresh donuts, games, and leaders who love teenagers! We are currently reading and teaching through the whole bible, week by week. See reading plan below. After the teaching time, we break out into small groups so that students can process what God is teaching them. We hope to see you there!  


Experience true community like you've never felt it before. Expect positive relationships, joy, biblical teaching, and great leaders (who care about students). We are in a teaching series on what the church believes and there is an adult class that coincides with it! In addition to intentional activities, students will have amazing small groups (alongside their peers and led by hand-picked adult volunteers). Our Student Minister, Daniel, preaches a biblical lesson and seek to pour into students. We hope to see you on a Wednesday night!

I was born and raised in East Texas, growing up in church from a young age. We were at church every time there was an open door! Through this all, I fell into disobedience and hypocrisy; it is possible to be a church-attender but not a follower of God.

Students need people who will show them how to follow God. They need encouragement from someone that cares. Christ’s love compels me (2 Corinthians 5:14-15) to help young people in this journey of faith. At Brookwood Student Ministry, we help mend broken relationships, reach out to the least of these, encourage spiritual growth, build events that draw students to God, disciple students in both small and large group settings, and raise up leaders who can do the same. Our goal is to encourage students to be the men and women God called them to be (Ephesians 4:14-16). We believe we can do this, all while having joy, living life, and connecting with students where they’re at!

My wife, Summer, and I met in Memphis Tennessee in 2015 - both doing youth ministry at the time. We were married in 2016. She is my best friend and the best partner anyone could ask for. Our son, Jacob, was born in 2018 and we hope and pray he uses his relationship with God one day to be a beacon of light to others who are struggling. Our daughter, Ellie, was born in August of 2020 and has added joy to our little family! We enjoy a good laugh, eatin’ some Cajun food, and spending quality time with others. Hope to see you around!
