Brent A. Parsons
Market President, Southwest Region
Brent Parsons accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior at the age of nine, and by the summer after his senior year of high school he had made the decision to commit his life to ministry. He later graduated from Oklahoma Baptist University, and proceeded to join the staff of his home church Southern Hills Baptist Church—a church known for its deep love and commitment to missions. While serving at Southern Hills as their Minister of Missions and Evangelism, he completed his MDIV from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
Brent was introduced to Doulos Partners on February 12, 2011 in Havana, Cuba—that’s when God introduced him to David Johnson. From the very beginning, Brent was drawn to Doulos Partners’ strategy, implementation, accountability, leadership, and effectiveness. He specifically admired the men of Doulos, David Johnson and Josh Clarke, for their integrity and their commitment to mission work. After over eight years with a front-row seat to Doulos’ ministry, Brent was thrilled to have the opportunity to join the team as the new Market President for the Southwest Region. His unique experience of international work with missions and state-side work as a pastor makes him an incredible asset to our team.
Brent has been married to Keely, who he’s known since pre-school, for 20 years. They have three beautiful children—Hunter, Hattie, and Maebree. When he isn’t working hard for Doulos Partners, Brent loves nothing more than to spend quality time with his family. The lake is their favorite place to go to relax, communicate, and enjoy life. The most important thing to him, however, is seeing the lost redeemed. Brent works to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to know Jesus and experience the joy of being used by Him.
