Youth Pastor

KatrinaKatrina Stipe Brooks  Youth Pastor
Katrina joined our church staff in February 2014. A Christ follower for years Katrina holds a B.A. from Samford University and a M.Div. from Baptist Theological Seminary in Richmond. Ordained in July 1999 Katrina served many churches including co-pastoring North Broad Baptist Church in Rome, Georgia with her spouse for almost eight years. Born to a military family Katrina is an adventurer who loves life fully and completely. She and her spouse Tony have two adult children, Tara and Joseph. In addition to serving MHBC Katrina serves as campus pastor at Lynchburg College.
A fan of dense breads, Dr. Pepper and good pizza Katrina enjoys reading, music from the 80’s/90’s and writing. One day she will publish her own work, but right now she feels blessed to be published in the works of others. A lover of hard questions, critical thinking and challenging the status quo, Katrina feels privileged to walk alongside students as they become the women and men God desires. One day she will be like Jesus, but for now she hopes she comes a little closer each day as she intentionally seeks to be the hands and feet of God.
