Bruce McCartney
Senior Pastor
Brother Bruce received Jesus Christ as his personal Savior on Memorial Day of 1990 at the Key West Baptist Temple in Key West, Florida. Sensing a call, he surrendered to vocational ministry in April of 1993. He was licensed to preach the gospel in 1996 and ordained into the gospel ministry in 2000. After serving 8 years in the United States Navy in personnel, he graduated from Southeastern Bible College in Birmingham, Alabama, with a Bachelor of Arts in Bible and additionally received his Master of Arts in Religion with a specialty in Church Ministries from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary. Bruce served as the Youth and Associate Pastor at Flint Hill from 1996-2000. In June of 2000, he participated on a ministry team that planted "The Gathering" church in Sevierville, Tennessee. After completing his one year commitment on the team, he came back to serve as the Senior Pastor of Flint Hill and has been in place since Father's Day of 2001. Bruce and his wife Patty have been happily married for 24 years. Patty is his #1 encourager and supporter, and is the love of his life. He has two grown sons: Daniel (married to Olivia) and Sheldon (married to Audra). Brother Bruce also has three precious grandchildren. Bruce’s life verse is Romans 1:16: “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes…” His passion is seeing people come to trust Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
