Minister of Students
Ben Birdsong was called as our Student Minister in September 2013 after serving with students for four and a half years at First Baptist Church of Pelham. Ben is married to Liz. He loves Starbucks, reading, movies, music, and spending time with family and friends. Ben has a great desire to see students grow in their faith in Christ and to see God use them to make an impact for Him on their campuses and in their communities. Ben was ordained and licensed into the ministry from the Church at Brook Hills in July 2009. He holds bachelor’s degrees in marketing and human resource management from the University of Alabama at Birmingham, a master’s degree in divinity from Samford University’s Beeson Divinity School, and a Doctor of Ministry in Ministry to Emerging Generations at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.
