Meet Our Staff!

 

JIMMY MEEK || Senior Pastor

 
Jimmy became the senior pastor of PBC in February of 2020. He is married to Beth Ann who he says is his better half and compliments his weaknesses. They both love Jesus and enjoy studying the word together. They have two dogs who think they are human and are treated as such. 
 
Jimmy was a teacher and a coach for 12 years. He played college baseball at UAB and thought he would be coaching forever until Jesus changed his desires. He made a "decision" for Christ at age 6 but did not know he was lost until he became a follower of Jesus at age 36.
 
Since then, Jimmy has pastored churches in Alabama, Mississippi, and Arkansas. He holds a Political Science degree and a Masters in Education from UAB. He also received a Masters of Divinity from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. 
 
Jimmy has been given a burning desire to expose "unsaved" professing Christians here in the Bible Belt to the glorious good news. He has also been burdened to make disciples who make disciples. Jimmy desires to see the lost become truly converted and to discover the joyful mission our King has given us. 
 
"God made Christ, who had no sin, to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God."
2 Corinthians 5:21
 
 
 

TYLER KING || Worship & Administration Pastor

 
Tyler has served in various churches and ministries in Alabama since he was 18. He was born and raised in Boaz, Al where he was saved and baptized at Mount Vernon Baptist Church. While singing with the College Street Singers at Snead State Community College God called him into ministry.
 
Tyler is a graduate of Leavell College through the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. He also has a joy for discipleship and songwriting. Tyler and his wife Maegan have a son named Tanner and a daughter named Madelynn. Tyler joined our team in August 2020.

"Just one thing:  Live your life worthy of the gospel of Christ."
