Jamie Pippin. Associate Minister to Students.
Jamie grew up in what he considers the absolute best place to grow up, Fairhope, Al. Situated on Mobile Bay and not far from Gulfshores & Orange Beach, he stayed out on the water fishing as well as being heavily involved in Football & Golf while in High School. He graduated from High School in 2005 and that is when the Lord began to move in His life and call him into ministry.
After two years at a community college, he transfered to William Carey University, in Hattiesburg, Ms. He graduated from there in 2010 with a Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Studies and a minor in physical education (never know when that will come in handy). After college, Jamie moved all that he had and began his jounrney towards a Masters Degree at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. In 2013 he graduated with a Masters of Arts in Christian Education, with an emphasis in student ministry.
One week after graduation Jamie married his wife Jennifer. They met while in seminary hosting a youth conference that SWBTS puts on. It was at a random column on the seminary's campus that their love for each other would begin. They have now been married for 3 years and have one awesome child, River who is 11 months old.
In his spare time, if he is not hanging out with his wife on their boat tubing on the lake, or watching River roll all over the living room, you can find him on the golf course. He is still perfecting his craft to this day even though he knows he won't make it on the PGA tour.
Jamie's favorite verse is 2 Timothy 2:11-13 "If we have died with him, we will also live with him; If we endure, we will also reign with Him; if we deny him, he also will deny us; if we are faithless, he remains faithful, for he cannot deny himself"
