Brian Smith serves as Youth Pastor for Faith Encounter. As Youth Pastor, Brian is responsible for serving students AGES 13-18 in our youth ministry, The Pulse. He understands that a healthy church must have a solid youth program and he is here to equip students to walk with and serve Christ.  Our youth are the heartbeat of Faith Encounter and it’s important that they not only realize this, but that they embrace their role.  He wants all of our youth to understand that they are light everywhere they go and Jesus expects them to be an example wherever they go. Along with serving as youth pastor, Brian also plays drums on the FE Praise Team and is a chaplain for the Blount County Sheriff’s Office.  Brian has been married to his wife Carrie since 1998 and they are the proud parents of two daughters, Emily & Hailey.
