Our Servants

Pastor Prudent has been the lead Pastor at BHBC for 3 years. The Lord sent him to BHBC during the search for a pastor, in the month following the death of Pastor VanDyke.

Pastor Prudent has been married to Anne-Elizabeth for almost 24 years. The Lord has blessed them with 4 wonderful children: Frances, who is now married, Chris, who is a student at the University of Georgia, Abi-Ananiah, who is a student at Truett-McConnell University, and Lydia, who is a sophomore at Rainey-McCullers school of the arts.

As an educator, he has had the opportunity to teach mathematics in high school and middle school and has served in administrative levels such as K-12 principal and head of school.

Pastor Prudent is passionate about sound preaching and teaching. As a student of Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, he is a strong advocate and practitioner of expository preaching. He has a passion for the people of South Columbus and hopes to someday lead BHBC to serve the Chattahoochee Valley.
