At the age of 15, Brett attended a Student Life conference in South Memphis. Through a simple prayer prior to one of the pastors’ messages, Brett was convicted by the Holy Spirit of his selfish pursuits and was revealed a call to the ministry. After the constant battle for control over his own desires, and following his recruitment to play college baseball at Union University, Brett released his grip, gave up his own aspirations, and surrendered to the call.
Brett immediately got plugged into a local church in Jackson, TN, where he started as a volunteer, and served his way into a full-time worship leader position. As the Lord grew him and his abilities as a leader and worshiper, Brett found himself entrusted with more and more opportunities to share the name of Jesus through music across the country.
Brett’s heart is in the local church. He believes in and has sold out to the power of a Gospel centered, pompous free, worship experience that promotes only the name of Jesus. Today, Brett serves as a worship leader at The Journey Church in Lebanon, TN, just outside of Nashville, where he, his wife Megan, and their son Keaten live. His band is compiled of other guys who serve along side him in their weekly pursuits to show Jesus as incomparably glorious to the people in and around the Lebanon area.
