Our Pastors


Brandon Glunt, Senior Pastor

Brandon was saved at the age of fifteen and responded to the call to vocation ministry at twenty-two. Since then he has served in outreach, preaching and youth roles in the local church. He received his Bachelors in Biblical Studies from the College at Southeastern in 2008 and his Master of Divinity from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in 2012.  

Brandon came to Mt. Elam Baptist Church in October 2013 to serve as the Pastor of Youth & Outreach. In 2016, God led Brandon to transition his roles in ministry and in August, he was officially installed  as the Senior Pastor of Mt. Elam. When Brandon is not ministering to the church and community, he enjoys spending time with his wife and family, watching the Red Sox, Panthers, Tar Heels or NASCAR on TV, and enjoying the great outdoors. 


Seth Maples, Youth & Worship Pastor

Seth Joined our staff as the Minster of Youth and Worship in November of 2016 after serving in ministry in Virginia. Seth married his wife, Sarah, in 2014 after meeting in Missouri. They enjoy traveling, exploring and spending time with students.

While attending Liberty University Seth began to understand the call God had placed on his life. In following God's call he realized the importance of investing in the next generation.  Seth has a great desire to see the student ministry at Mt. Elam become a gospel-focused ministry, here only to give glory to God.
