Travis Brian
Associate Pastor of Music & Worship

I am originally from Hendersonville, NC, where I was Music Intern at Mud Creek Baptist Church. I graduated from North Greenville University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Christian Studies and a minor in Music. Some of my favorite things to do include playing music, picking up new hobbies, and just hanging out and meeting new people. I love being involved in the community and helping to spread the love of Christ through the different people I meet. Edgefield First Baptist has been a great place for me to grow in ministry. My favorite thing about our church is how welcoming and caring they are; you will not meet another church who will be invested in you and your family. I hope that you see that as you continue to visit and get involved. We would love to have you be a part of our church, especially the choir!
