Rocky Bradford

Senior Pastor

In Sept. of 1997, a wild young man from Rossville Ga. Was gloriously saved by the grace of  God. A few years later he was called to preach and ordained Sept. 2004 at Shiloh Baptist where he served as a youth pastor until 2009. God’s call came again in Feb. 2009 when Bro. Rocky became Senior Pastor of Sale Creek First Baptist for 6 wonderful years. In January of 2015, God’s call came once again, and the Lord placed Bro. Rocky as the new Senior Pastor of Mount Carmel Baptist.

For almost 6 years now, Bro. Rocky has led Mount Carmel in becoming an authentic New Testament church both locally and globally. He is committed to Preaching and teaching sound Doctrine while serving our community and the needs of the church. His ministry stretches beyond the pulpit into the field of sports, where he has served as a football chaplain for several local high schools for 18 years. He loves hunting, fishing, Tennessee Vols, and most of all spending time with his grandsons.

Bro. Rocky earned his Bachelor of Ministry from Covington Theological Seminary in Aug. 2005, and a Master of Divinity (Pastoral Ministries) from Liberty University (Lynchburg Va.) in Sept. 2012.

Bro. Rocky has been married to his high school sweetheart Christi for 29 glorious years. God has blessed them with three beautiful daughters and has added the blessing of 3 grandsons who can have anything they want.
