Brett is a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ and has a passion for disciple-making—the ministry of teaching God's Word, mentoring others and sharing faith. He has had the privilege of serving the Lord in over 20 countries on five continents. He first sensed God’s call to vocational ministry in 1998, while on a mission trip to Romania.
A life-long learner, Brett holds Associate in Business degrees in Management and Marketing from Midlands Technical College, and a Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies (Psychology and Business Management) from University of South Carolina. He also holds a Master of Divinity (M.Div.) in Pastoral Ministry from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. He served for 7 years at South Carolina Baptist Convention followed by 5 years in student ministry. Shortly after moving to NC to attend Southeastern Seminary, he served as interim pastor and worship leader of a church in downtown Raleigh where he developed a passion for inner-city ministry.
He has had the privilege of serving as Senior Pastor of Green Hill since October 2013. He believes growing committed followers of Jesus Christ is an intentional and continual process. He takes seriously the responsibility of developing Great Commission Christians, which is at the heart of shepherding. Expositional preaching of God’s Word, investing in the lives of others through mentoring, and sharing faith through missions and evangelism are also key components to this process.
Brett is a native of South Carolina and enjoys the diverse scenery of the State from the beach to the foothills. His hobbies include: playing guitar, reading, golfing, college football (Gamecocks!), hunting, fishing, shooting and spending time with family; especially his six beautiful nieces and nephews.
Brett also enjoys writing. He maintains a personal site “The Selfless Life” and contributes to "The Visible Church", which is a blog focused on helping local congregations glorify God and fulfill The Great Commission.You may also find him on Facebook and follow him on Twitter: @brettmarlowe
