Pastoral Staff

 Brent Long

Youth Pastor

Youth, Bus and Sports Ministry

Brent was born and raised in the Colerain Township area, but not raised up in church as a child.  As a freshman in high school he accepted an invitation to visit the Youth Group at Friendship Baptist Church.   It was on October 12, 1997 when he realized that Jesus Christ was his only hope for heaven and he accepted Christ as his Savior on that day.  Since then his life has never been the same.

God began molding and shaping him to be more like Christ as he committed his life to the Lord and the FBC Youth Ministry.  It was during his high school years when he knew that he surrendered his life to the Lord’s service.  Brent graduated from Colerain High School in 2001 and has continued serving in the FBC Youth Ministry ever since.  He helped chaperone each year on youth summer trips, run bi-weekly youth outings and teaching teens in Sunday school. while serving as a volunteer in the youth ministry.

Brent graduated from Northern Kentucky University majoring in Finance. He successfully worked in the insurance industry for six years until God called him to full-time ministry at Friendship Baptist Church in December of 2013. Brent has been married to his wife, Allison, since November of 2007 and they have one son named, Malachi.

 Keith Wells

Associate Pastor

Music, Education & Communications Ministry

God has given me the opportunity to serve as one of the Associate Pastor’s at Friendship Baptist Church. I have the responsibility for our music, communication, special events and education (children and adults).

God has blessed me with a wonderful wife, Liane, and two great children. Liane and I have had the privilege to serve together both at Friendship and on mission trips. God used an incredible missionary, Eduardo Lessa, from Brazil to capture my heart for God’s service. It was during a visit with Bro. Lessa’s daughter and son to his mission in the Amazon Basin that I realized I needed to surrender my life to Him. I had been a Christian since my early teens, but God has much more in store for us than just salvation through His sinless son, Jesus Christ. At the time I was in college for engineering, so I was able to finish my degree at Purdue University and get a job with the company for which I had co-oped. It was not six months after graduation that God started opening doors to allow me to start working and serving Him at Friendship. After five years of volunteer work as our music director and one of our youth leaders, God opened the door for me to come on staff full time in 2000.

I have been blessed to work with two supportive pastors that have given me the freedom to grow and create ministry opportunities. If I can ever be of help to you or if you have questions about Friendship or your relationship with the Lord, please feel free to contact me.
