TJ EARL, Student Pastor
TJ is an East Tennessee boy and is thrilled to be back home in Knoxville. He has spent the last four years as a student pastor in South Mississippi and did several internships in Knoxville before his time here. He graduated from Liberty University with a B.S. in Religion and is currently studying for his M.Div. in Theology at Liberty as well. He has been married to Rachel since 2013, and she is a vital part of his ministry at BBC. They have two small children. TJ has a strong passion for Student Ministry and has a desire to see every teen in Knox County come to find a relationship in Jesus. We are all Vol and want nothing to do with Bryan’s silly Tigers. TJ and Rachel love sports and the outdoors and make it a mission to have fun daily. TJ prays that the student ministry would follow after the mission of the church and develop devoted followers of Jesus Christ who demonstrate and declare the life-transforming power of the Gospel.
