Braden Hilton:

Braden graduated from Louisiana Tech University in March 2016 with a B.S. in Accounting. He is pursuing a Master of Theological Studies from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, TX.   Braden joined our staff in January 2017 as Middle School Associate. He has a passion to see students to radically follow Christ in there pre-teen and teenage years to set a foundation for the rest of their lives.

Braden came into relationship with Jesus Christ in October of 2012. He grew up in church, led in his student ministry, but it wasn’t until his freshman year of college that he realized he was simply doing what he thought Christianity was and never truly had relationship with Christ. Braden’s call to ministry also came with his call to salvation, knowing that many students are in the same boat that he was. He began serving as the Youth intern in 2013 here at FBC before taking on the role as middle school associate.

Along with being the Middle School Associate, Braden also manages The Depot Coffee House. He is also an avid sports fan and follows Louisiana Tech athletics closely. Braden would love to sit down with you at The Depot chat about sports, or what God is doing in your life, and, of course, drink a cup of coffee.
