Justin Myrick: Family Pastor-College/International Students

JustinMyrick_FamilyJustin joined the staff of First Baptist Church in August of 2010.  He is originally from Ellijay, Georgia, but was drawn to Arkansas by an opportunity to play football at Ouachita Baptist University.  He graduated there in 2003 with a Bachelor’s degree in Mass Communication.  In 2004, he came to FBC Russellville, and worked the next few years with youth, college, and recreation.  It was during that time that God confirmed Justin’s call to ministry, and eventually led him to serve two years in North Africa.  In 2006, he met his wife Brooke, a graduate of Arkansas Tech University.  Justin and Brooke were married in September of 2008, and welcomed their first child Hallie in September of 2010.  Then, in November of 2012 they were introduced to their son Drake.  Brooke is a registered nurse, and works at Choices Pregnancy Resource center here in Russellville.  Prior to his arrival in 2010, Justin pursued his Masters of Arts from Southern Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky, and served as Student Pastor of Skelly Drive Baptist Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
