Brian Williams

Youth Minister


My name is Brian Williams and I serve the Lord at the Cloverdale church of Christ as the youth minister. I have been married for 15 years to my best friend, Tammy. We were high school sweethearts, having met when I was only 15 and she was 16. We have four kids; Hannah, Addison, Lincoln, and Harrison.

Tammy and I grew up in Michigan and moved to Searcy in 2002 so I could attend Harding University. While at HU I enrolled in the Harding School of Biblical Studies (HSBS), which is now called The Center for Advanced Ministry Training (CAMT). In 2003 my family and I started to attend Cloverdale, where I started serving as a youth intern. In 2004, I graduated from HSBS with a certificate of completion, and in 2005 graduated from HU with a Bachelors of Ministry.

In 2005, Cloverdale hired me as full-time minister. Some of my interests/hobbies, mostly include physical activity. For the most part, I am full-time runner but also enjoy playing basketball and working out. When I want to relax, I enjoy watching sports on television or reading a book that will challenge me and make me think. One of my favorite quiet places is the front porch. From time to time when the weather allows for it, I enjoy getting up a little early and enjoying a cup of coffee on the swing. I enjoy writing but lately, most of my writing is for bulletin articles.

One of the my favorite things about youth ministry is being around a group of teens that has a passion for loving God and our neighbors, learning about God, and applying what they've learned by living a full life for Christ. I appreciate the contagious energy, "Refuge", the youth group at Cloverdale, always seems to have. Refuge is a diverse group of individuals that come from different backgrounds, schools, and is extremely talented, but are able to come together and unite under our vision of being a "refuge" for others. I have been and continue to be blessed by God as I serve at Cloverdale. I am excited to see how God will continue to work through me, my family, and the teens I get to serve at Cloverdale.
