Director of Preschool Ministries
Carol Brown has served as Director of Preschool Ministries at Highland Hills since May of 1995. She is married to Dr. Steve Brown, who is the Associate Dean of Student Services at Mercer University. They have two adult sons, Burgess and Hudson.
Carol spent her childhood years in Spartanburg, South Carolina, as the daughter of a Baptist minister of education and an elementary school principal. She is a graduate of Furman University with a degree in business and psychology. In addition to her work at Highland Hills, Carol has written preschool Sunday School curriculum for Smyth & Helwys Publishing, Inc. and has been published in Children’s Ministry Magazine. Currently, she is the copy editor for Spark and Form, the preschool and children's mission curriculum published by the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship.
At Highland Hills, Carol seeks to minister to preschoolers and their families by providing a warm, caring environment where children can see God’s love through the love of their teachers. When asked for her thoughts on ministering to preschoolers, Carol said, “I see each child as a gift from God and I count it a blessing to be a part of their lives in even a small way. The simple faith of our preschoolers inspires me and makes it a joy to serve at Highland Hills.”
