New youth minister named at FBC Brady

Tommy Smith, a 22 year-old prospective graduate at Howard Payne University, is the new youth minister and recreation coordinator at the First Baptist Church in Brady. Scheduled to complete his studies as a Christian studies major at HPU this May, Rev. Blake Odell, pastor of the First Baptist Church announced his hiring last week. He will be working part time in Brady until he graduates in May at which time he and his wife, Angie, will relocate to Brady. A Christian studies major with a minor in Biblical languages and an emphasis in practical theology, Smith is originally from Bridgeport, a small town with a population near 4,000. “I grew up in a small town so coming to Brady is going to be just like home,” said Smith. “I came across the advertisement for the job while reading the Baptist Journal so I sent in a resume. I got an interview and the rest is history. We are really looking forward to moving to the community and becoming involved as much as we can.”
