Ministry Impact:

Beth McCoun – Congratulations!

Please join us in congratulating our own Beth McCoun, she has accepted the position of Children’s Director at Homewood Community Church. As excited as we are, we are equally sad to see her go. Beth’s passion for Missions, Children’s Ministry, and for serving the Lord are hard to match. We will certainly miss what she brings to the Children’s Ministry but we know that the Lord will do wonderful things through her!



Jason Ellerbee & Family – Thank You!

We would like to express our appreciation for Rev. Jason Ellerbee and his family for their dedication and service to Briarwood over the last 13 years! Jason came on staff in 2009 as the Graduates and Career pastor and became the Young Couples pastor beginning in 2013. Jason has now accepted the calling to become the senior pastor of Christ Covenant Presbyterian Church in Cullman, Alabama.

Watch a short testimony of our appreciation here.
