Dr. Byron Brown, Pastor
In August of 2004, I was privileged to be called as the Senior Pastor of Redemption Church. I completed my Master of Divinity in Expository preaching in 2003, and my Ph.D. in Preaching in December of 2009. I have a deep passion for biblical exposition of God's Word so that believers will grow in their delight of God and unbelievers will have their eyes opened by God’s grace to the riches in Christ. I desire to see Redemption Church be an effective tool for God to reach all types of people in the Northshore region who need to be redeemed by God from their lostness in sin and brought into God’s family. I pray that God makes Redemption Church a place that truly Delights in God, Declares Jesus, and Disciples all people.
I am married to my wonderful wife, Liz, and we are blessed with four beautiful children, Caroline, Matthew, Benjamin and Zachary.
Jared Berry, Associate Pastor / Youth Pastor
I originally started attending Redemption Church of Lacombe back in the fall of 2007 as a new student at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, where I completed my Masters of Divinity in Expository Preaching. At that time the Lord was growing me through various challenges and had brought me to Redemption Church of Lacombe. The church was such a blessing from God during that time in my life. In January of 2009 He called me to serve on staff at Redemption Church of Lacombe through a program that sponsors ministry staff and the help of my childhood church FBC of Panama City, Florida. I am now blessed with my beautiful wife Audrey, my beautiful girls Alethea (Ali) and Shiloh as well as my awesome son Gideon. We also own a 3 legged pomeranian dog named Peeg (like “pig” but with a long e accent). My life verse is Matthew 6:33.
I am now the Associate Pastor of Youth and an Elder at Redemption Church. I love seeing the church unified into one body and ministering to this world as Christ's hands and feet. I also have a passion for exposing the heart of God's Word when ministering to the youth. I think people underestimate what they are really capable of learning and doing. I've seen that students have an uncanny sense of authenticity and although they might come for fun and games, they will not take you seriously if you aren't serious about what you are teaching. Students who see the authentic worship of God and hear it in His Word will stick around long after the fun and games are over. Instagram: JaredBerry316
Andrew Pohlmann, Worship Minister
In February of 2015 I came on staff as Worship Minister to Redemption Church of Lacombe and feel privileged to be a part of this family of believers. It is my passion to see believers engage in worship of our one true God and see their lives changed. I am humbled, amazed, and thankful that the Lord has allowed me to lead His people in worship of our Lord and Savior. Scripture teaches us that we should not only worship God corporately but that we should lead lives of worship everyday. I hope to see lives changed by the Gospel and see believers worship in Spirit and Truth. I am excited to see what God will do!
I am blessed to be married to my wonderful wife Amanda and the Lord has blessed us with two beautiful daughters. We are so thankful to be here with this church family and we are excited to see God work in people’s lives. I graduated from Liberty University with a B.S. in Worship and Music Studies. Currently I am seeking my M.A. in Media Arts and Worship from Dallas Theological Seminary online. I also enjoy telling stories through video of what God has done and how He is working in and through people and changing lives.
