OUR MINISTRY TEAM

BRIAN EXUM

Preschool & Children's Pastor

The Lord gifted me with being born into a loving, God-fearing family in central Florida. A few years later I had the opportunity of welcoming into the world one of the bigger blessings in my life—my very own twin sisters. Shortly thereafter in 1995, my parents thought it would be best for the family if we transitioned northward and planted in a small town near middle Tennessee called Lawrenceburg. Most of my upbringing was here, and we were very fortunate to find an incredible church family at New Prospect Baptist Church. They poured into me for years and ultimately the Lord used them as the means by which He would allow me to be born again. Not until I was 20-years-old did God reveal Himself to me through His word and indwell me with His Spirit. Several years after my salvation, the Lord called me into the ministry and I packed up and headed west to Memphis, Tennessee to attend Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary. While getting my Bachelor’s in Biblical Counseling there, I found a new church family in Kirby Woods Baptist Church. There were so many high points that came from there, but possibly the best was Kristina. We met through serving with the youth group at Kirby and the Lord allowed us to be married to one another in October of 2018. While navigating my Masters online and encountering different challenges in ministry, she has proved and continues to be my greatest encourager. Not to mention she is a 3rd grade teacher and when God called me to be Millington First Baptist’s Children and Preschool Pastor, she became the greatest asset in ministry I currently possess. I thoroughly enjoy working with kids. From the genuine sincerity and simple honesty of a child, to that moment when I get to witness God illuminate a truth from His word in their heart for the first time, I honestly believe I have the best job in the world!
