Brian David Stewart – Senior Pastor

I’ve enjoyed pastoring The Church on Main from her beginning in 2003. Before TCOM I worked with my dad and mom in our restaurant, The Deck. I received a BA from Leavell College of New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary in 2000, a M-Div from Luther Rice University in 2007, and will complete a D-Min from NOBTS in 2013. I have pastored churches in Columbia, MS and Tylertown, MS before planting The Church on Main.
