Before coming to McAfee, Dr. Younger served as a pastor for twenty-two years in Texas, Kansas, and Indiana, most recently at the Broadway Baptist Church in Fort Worth. He is the author of The Lighter Side: Serving Up Life Lessons with a Smile and Who Moved My Pulpit? He and his wife Carol co-authored Mark: Finding Ourselves in the Story. Brett writes a monthly column for Baptists Today. He has written numerous articles and sermons that have appeared in a variety of journals and periodicals that not many people read. He has a blog, peculiarpreacher.com, that needs better graphics.
He received his B.A. in religion from Baylor University, and his M.Div. and Ph.D. from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Brett and Carol (also a graduate of Baylor and Southern) have two sons, Graham, a student at the University of Georgia Law School, and Caleb, a student at Georgetown University.
