His seminary education includes a master's degree from Southwestern Seminary and a doctorate degree from Southern Seminary.

He and his wife, Allison, have three children and a goldendoodle named Lincoln. Berkeley and Briley are college students, and Brayden is in high school. Brent enjoys reading, fishing, traveling, writing, and spending time with his family. Brent loves our church and he believes it is the people that make our church great. Let Brent know if you see the red light on at Krispy Kreme, but he’s probably already inside.
