Pastor Brent Shields, Executive Pastor for Worship & Arts

Pastor Brent started in ministry in December of 1989 as a Youth Pastor and spent 8 years in youth ministry.  He became the Music Pastor at Bethel Temple in October of 1998 and currently serves as the Executive Pastor for Worship and Arts, overseeing the music ministry as well as drama, creative arts and media ministries.

He studied Criminal Justice at Tarleton State University.

Pastor Brent married his wife, Rachael, in 1999.  They have 3 kids.  Landry was born in December of 2004, Makenna in April of 2006 and Maddox in January of 2008.

In his spare time, he enjoys helping with the kids’ sports and school activities and just spending time with his family, especially in the boat on a lake anywhere.

What’s on his iPod?  All kinds of music, but some of his favorites at the moment are Hillsong, Jesus Culture and the Desperation Band.  There’s also a lot of ’80s stuff as well!

His goal in ministry is for Bethel’s team to foster an environment where the Holy Spirit is free to move as He sees fit, to be effective for the Kingdom and not just polished musicians and vocalists.  His heart is to see the old and the young, the new believer and the seasoned saint experience the presence of a Holy God each time we gather and watch how He becomes exactly what each one needs no matter what walk of life they come from.  He counts it a high honor to be able to lead God’s people into His presence each week.
