Welcome to pastorbrett.com! Here is what you can expect:

1. Posts primarily about things related to the Bible, spiritual growth, books, church history, contemporary Christianity, and sports.  I especially enjoy encouraging people in their walk with Christ. Here are some examples of some posts that I think are especially geared toward helping someone develop their personal walk with the Lord Jesus Christ:“Tips for an Effective Devotional Time”, “Professor Horner’s Bible Reading Plan”, and “Prayer of Dedication”

2. A new post once or twice a month. I’d love to post multiple times a week, but church responsibilities and family commitments (with a wife and four growing kids) preclude the possibility at this stage in my life.

3. If you comment, which I hope you do, a response with a few days. But per my previous statement about church and family, I may be slower in response.

Thanks for stopping by and have a grace-filled day!


Where are you from and where did you go to school?  I grew up in a small town in rural southern Illinois, called Benton. I am a graduate of Benton High School, Union University (B.A.), Southwestern Seminary (M.Div.) and Luther Rice (D.Min.).

What Bible do you use? My everyday reading Bible is a Windsor Text King James Version published by the Trinitarian Bible Society (to see one, click HERE). I preach from a New King James Version text produced by Holman and bound in brown goatskin leather by R. L. Allan (click HERE).

TBS Windsor
My TBS Windsor (King James Version). This photograph was taken back in 2009, right after I got it. It has since rebound by Diego Caloca in black goatskin with four royal blue ribbons. It is my everyday Bible.


Where do you pastor? I am the founding pastor of Harvest Jacksonville – A Bible Church, which is a wonderful group of authentic followers of Jesus Christ.


What are your hobbies and interests? History, sports, hunting, music, and, most of all, spending quality time with my family.


Life verse? I struggled with coming up with a life verse for a long time. I think I have finally settled on John 15, verse 5, where our Lord Jesus said: I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
