He began as the Lead Minister at Red Brush in August of 2022. Prior to that, he spent the previous 8 years in ministry as a campus minister and senior high minister.

    Children's Minister

    Before coming to RBCC as Children's Minister, I spent 23 years in education. I joined the ministry team in 2019 and am currently in my fourth year of ministry. Besides spending my time with our Red Brush family and coordinating our children's ministry, I own and operate a Christmas tree farm and store. Between my ministry and my farm, I get to combine all of my favorite things and hobbies - teaching children, cooking and canning, creating programs and events, working with animals, and celebrating Christmas!


  • Lori Hosselton

    Operations Manager

    Before coming to RBCC as Operations Manager I spent 15 years running my own Bookkeeping Business.  I joined the team at RBCC in December 2018, which has been a true blessing and answer to prayer.  Besides serving at RBCC I still keep bookwork for the Family Farm.  In my spare time I love spending time with my Grandson Breck and quilting.


  • Courtney Davis

    Administrative Assistant

    Courtney is a Red Brush native, thru & thru. She grew up here her whole life, her dad, grandad & great-grandpa were elders, and her extended family still attends here. She had a brief, 6-month lapse in her Red Brush loyalty when she married her husband,

    Tim, who is a worship minister. Courtney helps him lead worship each Sunday at their home church, Bible Grove Christian Church. Thankfully, in March of 2004, the Administrative Assistant position opened up at Red Brush and Courtney jumped at the

    chance to take her dream job. Now, she enjoys the best of both worlds, with TWO church families to serve & love! Courtney is passionate about serving her RBCC family and knows pretty much everyone.

    Tim & Courtney have a very unique love story that started at Oil Belt Christian Service Camp when Courtney was a jr. high camper. The Davises will celebrate their 20th wedding anniversary in August of 2023. The uniqueness of their story continued thru

    the world of foster care and adoption, which God used to build their beautiful family. Their 3 little loves (Kylee, Khloe & Crawford) are amazing kids who keep Tim & Courtney very busy.
