Who Is The Youth Pastor?
Hi! My name is Nathan Foxx, and I've been serving as the youth pastor at Bishop Branch since September 2016. I graduated from Anderson University with an undergraduate degree in Christian Ministry and a Master in Divinity degree. I work hard so that these students will be mature and growing Christians by the time they graduate. Every lesson, activity, program, and event we do has a purpose. We have fun, but we're not just here to have a good time. We're here to learn from the infallible, authoritative Word of God. I enjoy playing disc golf, spending time with friends, and connecting with students. Please text me or email me with any questions!
(By the way, my associate below will tell you that she can beat me in charades or fishbowl, but it's all talk)
Who Is The Associate Youth Minister?
Hey friends! My name is Whitney Storz and I have been on staff at B3 since January of 2020. My undergraduate degree is from Anderson University here in South Carolina and I am currently pursuing a Masters of Arts in Discipleship at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. My goal is to support and pour into students to help them identify the calling the Lord has placed on their life and assist them in effectively walking in that calling. In everything we do - every dodgeball we throw, every song we sing, every bowl of ice cream we eat - we are intentional in making Christ the center of it all and living out our eternal purpose. When I am not cheering students on at events or connecting the gospel to crazy games at youth group, you can find me hanging out with friends, visiting my family, reading a new book, or beating Nathan in fishbowl.
