Rev. Brittany Stillwell Krebs came to serve
First Baptist Church of Memphis as Minister of Music and Youth in November, 2014.
A native of Danville, Kentucky, Brittany has a Bachelor’s degree in Music
Education from Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama and a Master of
Divinity degree from The Baptist Seminary of Kentucky in Georgetown, Kentucky.
Brittany comes to First Baptist after serving
for three years at Buechel Park Baptist Church as Minister of Music where she
was ordained to the Gospel Ministry in 2013.
Brittany describes her call to ministry as a journey. “My initial
summons to ministry cannot be described in one event or miraculous conversion.
There is a clear summons embedded deep within my heart. For as long as I can
remember, I have been aware of God stirring in my life, pulling me toward
something; a desire to discover the Divine. The question has never been will I
answer the call, but how?”
Her role as music and youth minister allows her to answer the call in a unique way that resonates with her passion for meaningful worship, her love for music, and her desire to see youth reach their fullest potential as citizens of God's Kingdom.
Brittany met her husband, Kyle, in college. Her favorite pastimes include reading,
watching Cincinnati Reds baseball, playing with her cat Larkin, and cooking.
