Brent Lightsey

Pastor of Youth & Missions

Brent's goal is to communicate God’s unchanging truth, in a relevant way, to a world that is constantly changing. His goal for our youth ministry is for teenagers to understand what it means for them to give their life to Christ. We want them to understand their purpose for being on this earth: to glorify God by knowing Christ and making Him known. Their purpose begins with a personal relationship with Christ and is fulfilled as they make His greatness known to others, which is his goal for the entire church as we pursue God's mission locally and globally.

Brent is married to Nicole and they have two teen-aged daughters.
