Pastor Paul Brown
Coach – Lady Bobcat Volleyball
Pastor Paul Brown is in his seventh season of coaching the Lady Bobcats volleyball team, and just last season, the Lady Bobcats took home the title, winning the State Championship for the first time in school history! Under Pastor Brown’s leadership, the Lady Bobcats have made an appearance in the State Tournament every season, and they’ve been in the State Championship game four times.
As the Lady Bobcats volleyball coach, Pastor Brown appreciates the opportunity to get to know the players and see their character, as well as their abilities, grow stronger over the years. He believes great life lessons can be learned through sports, and he tries to teach his players important character qualities such as teamwork, dependability, compassion, integrity, and intensity. The Lady Bobcats team verse for 2015 is Mark 9:23: “…All things are possible to him that believeth.”
Pastor Brown has nearly two decades of experience coaching volleyball. Before coaching at Bay City Christian School, he was the volleyball coach in a South Carolina christian school for about 12 years where they won the Class A state Championship. Pastor Brown also played intramural volleyball in college, and he’s attended several coaching philosophy workshops to help strengthen his coaching skills through the years.
Pastor Brown is the Senior Pastor at Bay City Baptist Church. He and his wife Debbie have been married for more than 35 years. Their son, daughter-in-law, and grandbaby live in Washington, D.C.. Besides visiting and doting over his granddaughter, Pastor Brown enjoys running, target shooting, and working in his yard.
The purpose of the Bobcat athletic program is to further our mission of growing students toward spiritual maturity. I Timothy 4:12 reveals that there is value in physical exercise, but that it is temporal to this life. The superior pursuit is that of godliness which is eternal. God expects believers to do all things “heartily as to the Lord” and “to the glory of God (Colossians 3:23-24, I Corinthians 10:31.) These verses instruct us that any endeavor in which we are involved must be done with all of our mind and body for it is considered service to God.
Our desire is to present athletic teams that work hard in every practice and game, train for endurance and skill, and learn the strategy of the game in an effort to win every contest. Win or lose, our student-athletes must demonstrate Christlikeness, develop Biblical character qualities, and display Godliness before, during, and after every competition.
