What an absolute blessing it is to have such an amazing youth minister!  Seth is a graduate of Faulkner University with a degree in Criminal Justice.  He left a career in law enforcement while working as a juvenile probation officer after feeling called into ministry.  He has worked previously with the Chattahoochie Church of Christ and for the past three years he has served as the youth minister for the Linary Church of Christ in Crossville, TN.  He is a regular on the speaking circuit and teaches yearly at Impact at Lipscomb University.  Seth is an avid reader, loves sports and is a very hard worker.   Under Seth's leadership our youth group has grown numerically and spiritually.  They have done an outstanding job empowering our teens to lead spiritually and become more like Jesus.
