Mandy BowlingAdministrative assistant
I have been the church secretary for 11 years. I grew up in Danville Alabama. I was saved when I was 9 years old and joined Danville Baptist Church in 1989. I have since continued to grow in my relationship with Jesus through personal Bible study, as well as through the many programs available at Danville Baptist. I have been married to my husband, Jason for 20 years and have no children. We do however, have a precious little English bulldog named Woody. I enjoy spending time with family and friends–both biological and church!

Brian McCollumMedia Minister
My name is Brian McCollum but, most people call me “Catfish”. I was given that name my 8th grade year in football practice and I have had it ever since. I am happily married to Sally McCollum, and you could say I got lucky. We have two kids, Sadie and Cora. Sadie is 6 years old and she loves to watch Full House and dress up. She also wants to be a gymnast someday. Cora is 2 years old and loves her sister and wants to do everything she is doing. She also loves to hide or run when it is bed time. I have been going to Danville Baptist Church since 1999 and have been a member since around 2004. I have served the church as head greeter taught bible study for years and have served 3 terms as a Trustee. I have an Associate’s degree in Information Technology, I am a professional photographer and website designer.
I feel like the Lord led me to Danville Baptist several years ago for many different reasons, I have gotten 3 different jobs through the church, a wife, two children and many great friendships. Saying that my life without Danville Baptist would be different is an understatement. I am excited about my new role at DBC as the Media Minister and want to serve the church and the Lord to the fullest of my abilities.
