Bryan K. Bolton

I am originally from Arkadelphia, AR and hold a Bachelor of Music degree from Ouachita Baptist University in Arkadelphia, AR and a Master of Music in Church Music degree from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary in New Orleans, LA. In January of 2012, I will begin the Doctor of Ministry in Christian Worship degree from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY.

I have previously served Southern Baptist churches in Arkansas, Louisiana, Missouri and Kentucky. Prior to coming back to Arkansas, I was Assistant Professor of Music at Alice Lloyd College in Pippa Passes, KY and served as the director of the college choir, The Voices of Appalachia. I currently serve as Minister of Music at First Baptist Church in Pine Bluff, AR.

In addition to my responsibilities at the church, I serve as Associational Music Director for the Harmony Baptist Association in Pine Bluff, after serving in the same capacity for the Three Forks Baptist Association in Hazard, KY. I have sung in several community programs as well as being a member of the Pine Bluff Community Band, where I play the French Horn. I am also an active singer and instrumentalist of the Arkansas Master'Singers, a combined chorus comprised of ministers of music, music teachers, accompanists, and staff members from Southern Baptist churches across Arkansas.

My wife, Erin, and I have two children: Kaitlyn and Keith.
