Seth HarbisonSeth Harbison - 2014
Student Minister

 Hello, my name is Seth Harbison, I am the Student Pastor at Piedmont First Baptist Church. I graduated from the University of Mobile with a degree in Theology and a concentration in Youth Ministry. Soon after I graduated in 2008, I married my absolutely completely awesome and very beautiful wife Brittany Harbison who serves along with me in our ministry (she might have told me to put that). God decided to bless our family in 2012 with our precious son Reid. My hearts desire is to see lives changed and to encourage today’s teens to embrace and pursue God’s plan for their life. One of my greatest joys in ministry has been to watch God change many students' lives as they discover His love and passion for them! Plus I really enjoy having a great excuse to get to act like a kid again. Lets-be-honest, being a student pastor is by far the greatest job/calling on the planet!
