Brett Rushing
Student Pastor
I was raised in Brandon, MS and felt God calling me to ministry in late high school, but pushed it aside and hoped to find something else that would interest me.  But by the end of my first semester at Southern Miss, I knew that there was no other option, so I surrendered to whatever the Lord had for me.  After graduating from Southern Miss, I attended New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary and received my M. Div. in Expository Preaching.  Throughout college and seminary, I served in volunteer roles with student ministries at different churches before being called to Heucks Retreat in August of 2016.
My desire is to see all students come to a saving knowledge of the Lord.  Nothing brings me more joy than to see a student ‘get it’.  That’s done through partnering with parents to disciple their children and raise them in the way that brings honor and glory to God.  
I’d love to have you join us at Heucks Retreat and I can’t wait to meet you.
