Elliot Garrett

Minister of Students and Recreation

Elliot grew up in Brownsville, Tennessee and trusted Christ as his Lord and Savior as a child at Brownsville Baptist Church. As a teenager, the Lord called him to pastoral ministry, and Elliot began teaching the Bible and leading worship in his student ministry, which ignited his passion for youth and family ministry. Elliot began attending Union University in 2017 and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Studies in 2021. He immediately began taking seminary courses and graduated from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary with his Master of Divinity in December of 2023. Before coming to FBC Somerville, Elliot served in both Tennessee and Mississippi at two different churches as the Associate Pastor of Family Ministry and Worship and as the Student Pastor. He even taught Bible and coached golf and tennis at a local high school for a year! He loves playing and watching sports, leading worship, and reading about theology and the Bible. Elliot began serving at FBC Somerville in June of 2024.
