Leadership Team

Dr. Brian Rushing

Senior Pastor

[email protected]

I grew up in Jackson, MS, and met Paige during our early college years. After marrying, we served FBC Bay St. Louis for twelve years, where I fulfilled multiple ministry roles: Children & Youth Minister, Minister of Education, and Associate Pastor. While serving on the MS Gulf Coast, I obtained seminary degrees from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. In 2009, FBC Newton called me to serve as Senior Pastor, where we remained for ten years. After serving a short time as a Church Health Consultant for LifeWay Christian Resources, I am grateful to serve here at Poplar Springs Drive Baptist Church. My prayer is for our church to be known as a family that helps people come to know Jesus and grow as His disciples.
