Welcome to Brentwood Hills Student Ministries

The Brentwood Hills Student Ministry exists to EQUIP our students in their faith, to ENCOURAGE each other on their walk with Christ, to challenge the mature to EXPERIENCE God’s purpose for their life through ministry and to EXPOSE their non-believing friends to Christ.

  • The elders are pleased to announce that Emma Peyton will join our staff as the third member of our Student Ministry Team that ministers to our middle and high school students and their families. Emma, who grew up here at Brentwood Hills, will join the team of Clint Peyton and Robbie Forrester. She knows our students, our youth workers, our parents and the culture of our church. God made it very evident throughout this summer that Emma was the best fit to join this team. Clint and Emma’s prayer has been for them to eventually minister together as a team and that time has come! We are excited for this couple and the impact they will continue to have on our church family. Emma said, “I have been richly filled by Brentwood Hills as a young child, teen, volunteer and now student minister alongside some of the most influential people in my life. I am humbled knowing I don’t have all the gifts or all the answers, but God has come before me, and I’m going to do all I can to accept and follow His lead. Praise be to God.”   We have always known that Emma had a passion for ministry and she has proved herself on several occasions—but none greater than this summer when she agreed to an interim position to help fill the gap after Rachel Sawyer resigned. We are confident that our Student Ministry team of Robbie, Clint and Emma will continue to minister and serve the needs of our students and their families as we strive to develop spirit-filled disciples of Jesus Christ. Please lift them up in prayer as they embark on this new journey together. Emma will begin her work immediately. You can reach Emma by email: emma@brentwoodhills.org.
