Pastor Brian Haney
I began as Pastor here September 1st 2009. It has been my pleasure to serve as Pastor for over a decade. I was saved at the age of ten years old. My mother took me to an old fashioned Church where God was. When I walked in to the Grace Baptist Church at 587 Landers Drive in Mableton, GA, I met a Sunday school teacher named Mark Browning.
Brother Browning knew nothing about coloring books or Kool-Aid and cookies; but he knew God. He taught me my first Bible verse Romans 3:23. This was the verse God used to open my eyes and show me I was a lost sinner and needed a Savior. I was under real conviction from that day forward.
A couple of Sunday’s later, my Preacher, Garland Odom preached on The Only Way to Heaven. He preached the blood sprinkled concourse of Calvary. And that Sunday morning in 1981 … I came to Christ and he saved me.
At the age of 14 my Pastor challenged the young men to come to the altar and ask God what He would have us do with our lives. GOD began calling me to preach.
I ran from God for several years. But thank God he kept calling and I surrendered at the age of 21. I attended Atlanta Baptist College and Gwinnett Hall Baptist College earning my Bachelor’s Degree. I am living proof that God can use anybody.
Before I came to Anchor of Hope, God put in my heart … The Rise of a Mighty Church! Come be a part of The Rise of a Mighty Church.
